Lindbergh Kidnapping Case 1932 One of the most famous criminal cases in American history was the kidnapping of Charles Lindbergh, Jr., son of the famous aviator. On March 1, 1932, sometime between 8 and 10 p.m., the toddler was snatched from his upstairs nursery at the Lindberghs' still-under-construction retreat home near Hopewell, New Jersey. A note in badly written English was found on the window sill. It demanded $50,000 in ransom for the safe return of the child. A crude homemade ladder was also found leaning against the house. There were few other clues. The case took an odd turn when a 72-year-old good samaritan named John F. Condon took out a newspaper ad volunteering to act as an intermediary to negotiate with the kidnappers. His offer was accepted but neither Lindbergh nor Condon immediately informed the police for fear of putting the child's life in danger. Eventually the money--much of it in rare gold certificates--was paid to a man in a cemetery but the child was not returned. Shortly afterward a child's body was found in a wooded area not far from the Lindbergh home. It was badly decomposed and was identified as the Lindbergh child based on a slight deformity on its right foot. The child had died from a severe skull fracture. Eventually Bruno Richard Hauptmann, a German immigrant with a criminal record in his homeland, was tracked down for spending one of the gold certificates at a gas station. About $15,000 in ransom money was found in his house. Planks from his garage matched the wood used to make the crude ladder. Hauptmann proclaimed his innocence, claiming he was only holding the money for a man named Isador Fisch who had returned to Germany and died there. Hauptmann said he only began spending the money after learning of Fisch's death. Hauptmann was tried, found guilty, and executed in 1936. There is little doubt that Hauptmann was somehow connected with the kidnapping, but there are lingering suspicions that he was assisted by someone who knew the routine and the goings-on at the Lindbergh household. The Lindberghs were not even supposed to be at their Hopewell home on the night of the kidnapping. The kidnapper(s) also had to know precisely when and where the boy would be left unattended.

Radio Contest Death On January 12, 2007, Jennifer Strange, a 28-year-old mother of three from Rancho Cordova, California pictured in the photo below, was found dead in her home by her mother. It was only a few hours after she had tried to win a Nintendo Wii game console on a radio contest. KDND 107.9 FM's Hold Your Wee for a Wii contest involved drinking large quantities of water without urinating. The cause of Strange's death was determined to be a rare condition known as water intoxication--basically when too much water is consumed by a human being. Civil charges against the radio station were filed by Jennifer's family. They were eventually awarded $16.5 million in the ensuing wrongful death lawsuit. Everyone connected with the contest was fired from KDND. Oh, yeah...Strange did not win the contest.

Little Lulu  A Memory of the 30s Old enough to remember Little Lulu? The comic strip first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post on February 23, 1935 in a single panel comic strip, and ran until Dec 30, 1944. Lulu appeared in a series of theatrical animated shorts from 43-48. Her voice was done by Mae Questal, who also did Betty Boop and Olive Oyl. In the late 50's the cartoon was syndicated to tv. The Little Lulu anime is extremely rare and has been out of print in the US for years, although some full-length English-language episodes recently turned up on YouTube, and were said to have all been removed....

1927 Our Gang silent movie The Our Gang/Little Rascals films began in 1922 during the silent-movie era. Here is the first six minutes of a rare 1927 film called Ten Years Old. No chance these will ever air again. What kid today would watch a silent black-and-white movie?

The Jetsons ABC TV Promo A Rare black and white promo from 1962. "The Jetsons," aired on prime time after 16 months in development, was set in 2062, 100 years after the first episode was broadcast. Supposedly, the series had no chance at survival, because it was scheduled opposite "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" and "Dennis the Menace," which had both built up an audience in previous seasons. However, ABC continued to show the original 24 episodes of "The Jetsons" for 15 years! The laugh track was removed when Worldvision syndicated these episodes in 1985. Episode title cards were added to all of the Jetsons shows, old and new, and a remake of the old Jetsons theme song was employed for use.

Unassisted Triple Play This is the rarest feat in baseball: On May 12, 2008, second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera of the Cleveland Indians makes an unassisted triple play against the Toronto Blue Jays. It was only the 14th unassisted triple play in major league history. A Cleveland player had not achieved this feat in the regular season since 1909.
