  • Trivia

    • Frank Flannigan's column is presented as a series of brief bits of information. The first bit starts off sensibly enough, but in the second line the grammar suddenly skews, and the confusion goes on from there. The second bit is properly written, telling of a taunting letter written by L.A's "Butterfly Killer" to the local police. The third line seems to be political doublespeak that (naturally) makes little sense. The fourth bit is the focus point about Inspector Queen keeping his "family" secrets. The fifth, (and the last visible) bit is taken word for word from the article printed to the right of the column.
