NEW YEAR'S DAY PUZZLER.
While going through the voluminous InTheHat secret vault deep in the Wally Fortress of Solitude, this ancient Polaroid popped up. Instead of revealing who the three individuals are, I'll turn this over to you all. First person to accurately name all three individuals gets a free autographed copy of the book when it hits the stores in July. All readers, including law enforcement, are eligible.

Robert "Robot" Salas

Jimmy Coppola

Another blog I enjoy reading from former LA Mayor Sam Yorty.
http://mayorsam.blogspot.com/2005/06/save-seal.html

"Community concern 'an L.A., based community self help organization,' recieves $ 1 million in federal funds. Ex-convict Rafael 'Chispas' Sandoval a man with ties to Italian organized criminals including Jimmy Coppola is the director. Sandoval also expanded Eme's political ties donating several hundred thousand dollars to Richard Alatorre's campaign for the California assembly."


I am not really that interested in the history of the EME but would rather see a quick death sentence to any EME members convicted of murder. Being the equal opportunity hang-man I would apply this to all convicted murders.

I was watching comic Dennis Miller last night talking about how our justice system has gone crazy.
He was joking about the Scott Peterson trail and how Scott P. said he went fishing on Christmas Eve, leaving alone his very pregnant wife. Dennis M. thought we should have three court rulings;
3) Innocent
2) Guilty
1) You got to be shitting me (for the obviously guilty such as Scott P.)

And that we should escort the "You got to be shitting me" convicted murders right to the death chamber, that Dennis Miller has my vote.

Ha-Ha Granted the JM ident was a reach, Script. Yeah I've seen his photo from Mundo's book, but yo both guys wear a buzzcut so cut me some slack.. Coppola's better lookin for sure.. Got star quality. And say, you being the "film student" howz come Jimmy Coppolla never got a role in any of Francis Ford Coppolla's flicks. Tell me that, huh?? He'd have played a better "Mary Corleone" than Sofia did in Godfather III?

I seen Sputnik's name mentioned, he's the one who introduced me to jimmy coppola in 1978 in the county jail,from there I was sent to wayside where I met barny from diamond st. who also new jimmy coppola and told me about that movie The Jericho Mile,the one that was filmed in folsom prison.Two months later, I see barny at the release area where we get released at the same time,he told me he wanted to visit kilroy and coppola at the county jail.I filled out the visiting pass to see jimmy coppola and barny pulled out kilroy,I remember jimmy coppola giving me a credit card number to send to my brother,who was at folsom at the time, he shorly followed to folsom prison where he was stabbed to death by two inmates in 1984.
