Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

Chandra Levy's remains have been found. The bumbling D.C. police have finally gotten a break in the case. Just as it was looking as if, since Columbo is a fictional character and therefore most likely unavailable, I'd have to go down there myself and investigate the disappearance. I mean, did the police check this park for her body or what?

According to the Washington Post, Levy searched a Web site for the Klingle Mansion in Rock Creek Park on the day she disappeared. Her body was found a mile from the mansion. Did someone call her to arrange a rendezvous there and then murder her and bury the body? That would make the crime premeditated. I wonder what color Gary Condit's (a.k.a., Mason Verger from "Hannibal." Anyone else notice the resemblance?) tighty whities are right now.
