Edification for an LA Times Newsman . . .
This edification is beneficial to Black Dahlia buffs in general . . .
Larry Harnisch, a newsman for the LA Times, is a Black
Dahlia-murder buff, and the sitemaster of a Dahlia-case-related website.
Mr. Harnisch used Amazon.com as a forum to review/attack an allegedly
true 1994 book on the Dahlia murder. Harnisch then utilized his website
in bashing a purportedly true 2003 publication on the Dahlia murder.
Now Mr. Harnisch is trying to slam the Black
Dahlia Solution website via his site.
Befuddled by foibles, Harnisch's first two targets offered little or
no response. His third target is a different animal . . .

Mr. Harnisch made an asinine assertion about Ed Burns.
The asininity relates to a list of LAPD's Black Dahlia-murder suspects.
Hmmmmmm . . . The Dahlia case is an open murder case. LAPD is super-secretive
about this case. And LAPD allowed a list of Dahlia-murder suspects to
slip into public purview(?) To say that a thinking person would take
this list seriously is moronic and oxymoronic . . .
. . . Once upon a time, a frogback-rider-wannabe scorpion told a frog, "I won't sting you." Once upon a pond, the scorpion stung the frog. The fading frog said, "Now you drown, you fool!" The sinking scorpion replied, "You're the fool: I'm a scorpion!"Once upon a time, Harnisch used scorpionesque expediency to the advantage of Solution. He used one of the photo-booth shots to show that Dr. George Hodel wasn't the man who'd checked into The HIRSH Apts., with the Dahlia. But the snapshot also showed that Dr. Walter Bayley wasn't the man who'd checked in with the Dahlia. So who was the man who had checked into The HIRSH Apts., with the Dahlia, three days after her Biltmore ruse? Ed Burns was the man: Ed was the guy in the photo with the Dahlia. Ed told us he was, when he told us the Black Dahlia abattoir was The HIRSH Apts. And the HIRSH was not a "motel," as Mr. Harnisch erroneously stated . . .
Most Black Dahlia buffs have heard the nonsense about LAPD Dahlia-file contents being pilfered by "souvenir hunters" . . . Well, it ain't rocket science. Common sense tells me . . . Detective-Sergeant Harry Hansen knew the Dahlia case should have been closed in '47. Harry's man: Ed Burns. LAPD didn't keep hush-hush Dahlia-case data in a grab bag. When Hansen retired, potentially embarassing Ed Burns data departed LAPD premises with Hansen, not with souvenir hunters.
The day LAPD admits that Ed Burns was their likely Dahlia-murder suspect will be the day they admit that Ed was the "unID'd man" in the photo-booth shots. And that'll be the day they close the Black Dahlia case!
Time magazine referred to the 1946 Suzanne Degnan dismemberment
murder as: "The crime story of the century." Elizabeth Short was profoundly
obsessed with the Suzanne Degnan murder and Sue's murderer, William Heirens.
Siting of Dahlia remains was one of several elements of a Degnan-murder mimetism
which included a cryptic trilogy. The trilogy theme was/is: "Degnan Murder." I
have street medicine for Mr. Harnisch's foot-in-mouth malady. Two street maps
are in the trilogy. Harnisch is conveniently ignorant of these maps. Map 1
defines streets and Red Car tracks in the locality that harbors the lot. Map
1 plots and labels: Norton, Grayburn, Edgehill, Degnan, 39th, Coliseum, Exposition,
Rodeo, and P.E.RY. Map 2 utilizes 39th as a reference, and plots and labels
only Degnan and Norton. Dahlia-killer Ed Burns did this to fix our foci on
these two streets and the fact that Norton and Degnan fork off of a southerly
stem: Degnan. Norton is one of two Degnan branches. Grayburn and Edgehill are
irrelevant. Map 2 plots a Degnan-theme love triangle to tell us why Liz and
Beth were displayed on a branch of Degnan, in a lovers' lane.
