Who's missing lately?
I have this little fantasy that Ambrose Bierce, Judge Crater, and Jimmy Hoffa meet once a year in a cigar bar in Ybor City to have a glass of cognac and laugh about the fact that people still wonder where they are.
This topic came to my mind when I told someone the other day that a friend of mine I hadn't seen in many years had "pulled a Crater" and vanished off the face of the earth. He though I meant my missing friend had been hit by a meteor. I went on to explain that Judge Crater had vanished unexpectedly and drew a blank. I mentioned Ambrose Bierce and Jimmy Hoffa. I drew two more blanks. So I'm old. I get it. Who has disappeared more recently? Is there no contemporary reference?
I have definitely achieved my geezerhood.
