Earth Day Update

Earth Day Philly Style - The Philadelphia Bulletin: "Today is Earth Day, a holiday created to honor the planet and to raise the consciousness of man’s effect on the environment. Philadelphia has a very strong tie to this day. One of its native sons, Ira Einhorn, was a co-founder of the environmentalist jubilee.

But Mr. Einhorn has another line on his resume. In addition to being a environmental guru, he is the Unicorn Killer.

While a student at the University of Pennsylvania, Mr. Einhorn dated a Bryn Mawr College graduate by the name of Holly Maddux. When the affair ended in 1977, Mr. Einhorn went into a jealous rage and murdered her."

It's consistent. Lower the population to save the earth. Philly leads the way.

Why do I know all these people, and yet I totally forgot about the Unicorn killing...or maybe never knew? I went to Penn, and I'm from Philly. I knew Ira, of course, and Jerry, but still... my early mystery community? The real thing... definitely a different earth day story.

Okay, let's see. That's Janis, dancing on Bandstand, and the Unicorn Killer. You really do need to write that autobiography, Janet.

I didn't know that Einhorn had a moniker. He was big news a few years ago because did not want to extradite him since he may have gotten the death sentence. Scumbag.
