So Geraldo and Jerry Springer both went to law school.... not enough to call it a trend, but if I find out Montel Williams went to Yale I'm calling it a conspiracy against the public.

Howard Stern didn't go to law school. haha, but as with Jerry Springer, BU UG refuses to acknowledge the fact that Howard Stern ever paid a single tuition penny there.

Gary Ridgeway (aka, "the Green River Killer"). Portland Trailblazer Martell Webster's mother may have been killed by him. His known victim count is about 60, but he may have exceeded 100 by some estimates. Bundy's count is near 40, but he may have killed 50-60. He was jealous of Ridgeway.

Just another unemployed lawyer.


He went to not 1, but 2 schools run by cults.

I guess it doesn't bode well for Pepperdine that their grads think keeping someone with a concussion in a shed for hours.

H.H. Holmes has a suspected kill count on the high side of 230.

Damn! Ok. Bundy is third in the U.S. numbers wise then. lol. I had never heard of dude. Between the two of them, over 150 women!! They're from the same city, essentially, Seattle.

But on second thought, we have to consider the "competition level". Jack the Ripper and HH Holmes didn't have to compete with the same competition level and technology. When you compare by era, Ridgeway and Bundy are still more "prolific". Remember...I said "prolific" above, not "numbered". If Ridgeway had been alive back in the 1800's, he would have killed 1000+.

...wait...are these serial killers or NBA ballers?! LOL. I mean it's Ridgheway, Bundy and HH Holmes, not Kobe, Jordan and Wilt. lol.

Mods, that didn't seem fair what you did to fonzerelli. He brought you threads such as: The Ding Bar, The Sing Bar, this one and contributed (in a very helpful way) to many others. Why was he banned for calling someone out? :D

I'm sure many TLS'ers would attest (if you look at the fonz's post history) that he was helpful and nice. Is this a permanent thing or just for today? Thanks mods.
