My Wife Loves Crazy Hippies!

I’m a huge fan of old police shows.

Especially Columbo.

ESPECIALLY COLUMBO.

One factor of my Columbo love is that it takes place in Los Angeles. Like Dragnet and Adam-12, it showed the best of LA and the worst of its people. As a lover of local Southern California history, I love all of the non-Universal back lot scenes and I have fun trying to figure out locations.

And because of my love of Southern California history, I also love the fuck out of all of our serial killers and crime. The more you know……

So you can imagine how wet my panties got when I got my hands on this:

ZOMG! It’s like Columbo got his chocolate in Manson’s peanut butter!

But then I read the back:

Charlie Weaver?

 

Oh.

So it’s not the REAL Manson murders.

But HELLO – why not write a book with Columbo trying to solve the Manson murders? He was on the force in 1969 -it would have been interesting to see Columbo’s take on solving the Tate/LaBianca murders.

“Oh? So this is the White Album?”

 

As a matter of fact, someone should write all new Columbo books with him solving REAL Los Angeles murders. It’s not like we don’t have enough of them.
