Any thoughts on why a current car license plate

D.B. Cooper update, in case you wanted to know.

New D.B. Cooper suspect revealed through lab analysis of skyjacker’s tie, just in time for CooperCon https://www.oregonlive.com/history/2022/11/new-db-cooper-suspect-revealed-through-lab-analysis-of-skyjackers-tie-just-in-time-for-coopercon.html

This much you can say about Eric Ulis: he doesn’t give up.

The true-crime investigator, who organizes the annual CooperCon in Vancouver, believed for years that a man named Sheridan Peterson was the celebrated skyjacker D.B. Cooper. He told The Oregonian/OregonLive in 2019 he was “98 percent” certain Peterson was the pseudonymous criminal who’s inspired songs, countless books and even a feature film.

But unlike many other dedicated “Cooperites” trying to bust open the only unsolved airline hijacking in U.S. history, Ulis is willing to reevaluate his assumptions when the evidence doesn’t quite line up.

He abandoned the late Peterson as a suspect about a year ago when he couldn’t find anyone in the former smokejumper’s long life who knew him to puff on cigarettes. The skyjacker, who bought a $20 plane ticket at Portland International Airport on Nov. 24, 1971, under the name Dan Cooper -- and later jumped out of Northwest Orient Flight 305 with $200,000 in ransom – smoked cigarette after cigarette while onboard the Boeing 727 that day.

But while Ulis gave up on Peterson, he didn’t give up on the Cooper case.

Oregon passes Measure 114, one of strictest gun control measures in U.S.

By Maxine Bernstein | The Oregonian/OregonLive

Oregon voters passed one of the country’s strictest gun control measures, a long-sought goal of a grassroots faith-based campaign.

Partial returns tallied as of 11:15 p.m. showed Measure 114 leading 51% to 49%.

Most of the votes left to be tallied were in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties, all favoring or heavily favoring the measure.

The measure will require Oregonians to obtain a permit to buy a gun after completing a firearms safety course and would ban the sale or transfer of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

It also will close the so-called Charleston loophole by requiring state police to complete full background checks on buyers with permits before any gun sale or transfer. Under federal law now, firearms dealers can sell guns without a completed background check if the check takes longer than three business days.

Federal dossiers on arrested Portland protesters named their friends, family, reviews disclose

Source: The Oregonian

By Maxine Bernstein | The Oregonian/OregonLive

Homeland Security’s top leaders initially wanted federal agents to compile intelligence reports — dubbed “baseball cards” -- on “everyone participating” in Portland’s racial justice protests in 2020, according to new information made public Thursday.

After an intelligence head warned they needed to narrow the scope of the reports, they forged ahead and produced dossiers on people arrested during the demonstrations who had nothing to do with threats to federal officers or homeland security, according to unredacted federal reviews of the intelligence gathering released by U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.

Some of the improper intelligence reports went so far as to include the personal interests of the arrestees and the names of their friends and family based on scans of their social media profiles, the internal reviews noted.

A review by Homeland Security’s Office of General Counsel pointed to Brian Murphy, then the department’s acting under secretary of intelligence and analysis, as directing much of the misguided intelligence gathering and said Murphy’s subordinates were afraid to challenge him.

This is everyone’s future in a Republican dictatorship.

Okay, so I'm no Jeff Tiedrich.


Has it occurred to anyone that student test scores are tanking

because it’s too f*cking scary to be in school? Why aren’t we seeing ads from the Democratic Party promoting responsible gun safety legislation if Democrats win a majority in both houses?
