Ambrose Bierce: disappeared 1914 Judge Crater: disappeared August 6th 1930 Jimmy Hoffa July 30th 1975
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.I keel you!

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…
