A Couple of Items of Interest
As expected, the family of John Williams, the suspect in Tony Williams' new book Uncle Jack, have voiced their displeasure over their ancestor being named Jack the Ripper.

A teacher relates a trip to the library with her students and was proud the librarian, as a response to an inquiry by a student, said they had no children's books on Jack the Ripper. In fact, there is My Grandfather Jack the Ripper by Al Apone.

There are a lot of stories about the revelation of Deep Throat's identity that throw in the fact that one of the mysteries left now is the identity of Jack the Ripper.

This item concerning Friday the 13th mythology points out the fact that many of our modern "monsters" have had 13 letters in their names, like Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy and Jack the Ripper. Interesting.

I guess it's good that my parents chose not to spell my name Rachael, then. I would then have a 13 letter name!

Yes but...er...Jack the Ripper is not his REAL name. OR IS IT??? That would be a laugh.
