Clips from CBS nightly news 7.30.14
I gave an updated Black Dahlia talk to one-hundred Peninsula Seniors this morning at the Fred Hesse Community Center in Rancho Palos Verdes. In response to my query, it was determined that about one-third of the audience was actually living in the L.A. area in January, 1947 and they well remembered the massive news coverage and month long “above the fold” reportage of the sensational crime. Mrs. Lianne LaReine and Ms. Diane Robinson did an outstanding job of coordinating and promoting the event and CBS News conducted a brief interview after the presentation which aired on the nightly news. My personal thanks to all present. The Peninsula Seniors Community Center at Fred Hesse Park is a beautiful ocean-view setting which I highly recommend. Check their website for a schedule of events and speakers.
