A question

I was on Newspapers.com and ran the name of a person who disappeared in the early seventies. I knew she wore dentures, although she was only in her thirties. I just found out why: when she was in her twenties she was in a car accident and knocked out several of her teeth. I found an article about the accident; she was cited for driving without a license and failure to maintain a safe distance.

My question: does it make a difference how a person lost their teeth? Would they be able to tell by looking at a jawbone whether teeth merely fell out, or were pulled out, or outright knocked out? Cause if they can tell if teeth were knocked out, it’s worth mentioning that accident on her casefile.

Does anyone know? Thanks!

Website background

From time to time, people have complained that the background on the Charley Project’s website (which isn’t on the casefiles but is on every other page) is a tad bit busy and makes the text hard to read.

Towards the end of fixing this problem, I have put together a prototype of a more readable version of the site. I didn’t change much: I just inverted the colors of the background image (making the light colors dark and vice versa), changed the main text color from black to white, and make the dark green headline text a lighter apple-green so it was more visible against a dark background. The top headline banner remained the same, because the drawings of Charley Ross on each side looked a bit creepy when the dark outlines were changed to light.

You can see my new template idea here. I used the Charley Project’s FAQ page.

So what do y’all think? Should I implement this as-is? Do you want some other change made? Or are you happy with things as they are right now?

Better nip this in the bud

I got a comment on this blog post today, from someone named “Jo”:

I am Brandi but everyone wants me to forget that I am pretty sure I have figured out who Tiffy is & what name she goes by now but the Meagan chic that runs the Charli Project thinks she’s god smarter than everyone else & thinks only she can solve any of these cases but if you read the disclaimer for the Charlie Project website it states she is not an investigator & they do not investigate the cases on that site. So I think this Meagan person is a misleading liar trying to convince people her words & thoughts are law written in stone. She claimed to do a hair strand DNA test on me yet that has never happened I have never met her. My DNA test was an oral swab that matched a member of the Summers Family we went through a private lab so people like Meagan couldn’t tamper with it.

And I replied,

What on earth are you talking about? I never convinced you to do a DNA test or said I did. I’ve always been very open that this website, and its administrator, doesn’t investigate cases and serves as an information portal only. You’ve got me mixed up with someone else.

I just want to make it very clear that I have never met Jo in my life or had anyone run a DNA test in any case. This person, if they didn’t imagine this entirely, clearly has me mixed up with another individual. I certainly have an idea as to who that individual might be, but let us say no more about it.

Cogeadr?

I’m looking at the Cleveland Police Department website and they’ve got this missing guy with schizophrenia and it says he’s taking “cogeadr.”

That’s not a real medication; clearly the word has been misspelled. I have no idea what the correct word is; I tried Googling it and came up with zilch.

I called my own psychiatric clinic to ask and they’re not sure. The secretary said she’d pass the info on to the nurse to look up. Considering how that nurse NEVER calls me back when I have actual medical complaints (like “this new medication you put me on is making me walk like a drunk person, is that normal and will it go away?”), I have a feeling I’m not going to get a call back.

Muttergrumble.
