Poor Paula:

I disagree with this statement.  People lobby or talk to their state and federal officials everyday.  It's nothing new.  If that connection comes from well-heeled political donors it helps even more.  Sounds like Twitty has some powerful well connected friends.

But, folks call their congressman and senators everyday....they often deal with issues concerning family members in other countries.[/quote]

I don't want to make a big issue out of this...but, people regularly DO call their elected officials....especially when needing help with family members in trouble in foreign countries.  That's why these officials have large staffs to handle such communication.  I don't think there's anything rare with this at all.  Any politician would love to be able to help a needy family.

This totally freaked me out: I am having a problem with my new laptop, so I logged into Dell support to chat live with a technician. So I entered my question and was flipping back and forth between this forum and the chat session while I was waiting for a technician to respond. When I checked back with the Dell support page, I see this:

{Deepak 10:00:48 AM} Thank you for contacting Dell Consumer Technical Chat Support for Desktops,printers,Electronics & Accessories.My name is Deepak, Please give me a minute to review your question and in the mean time can you please verify the system shipping address and the telephone number.  

I guess Deepak is a pretty common name!


Wonder how many parents in Aruba will name their kids Deepak, Satish, and Joran in the next few years?  Bet not many.

I am going to lock this thread on the next page (44). As the lunch rush comes in, it will be better to be starting on a fresh thread.

Hey, I was watching Greta last night talking with NH's parents, and I heard Mrs. H-T say something interesting......she said something about....we've been talking to people in Washington............I took that as in D.C., and I was impressed. I don't know anyone, including myself, who has enough juice to talk to someone in Washington without causing a visit from Secret Service. Anyone else catch that? and think, hmmmmmm too?


Hmmmmm, what? Vast conspiracy at work here? The woman is contacting Senators and congressmen, for God's sake. That's what our elected officials are for. Our elected officials take interest in situations like this. They represent their constituents. Anything sinister about that? I'm hoping someone will take an interest in this case and encourage the Aruban government to move forward, but I suspect it's too late. Valuable time has passed, and valuable evidence is gone forever.


No, I don't think vast conspiracy. I think contacting Senators and Congressmen too, but contacting them all along before daughter missing. Talking with them about relevent issues in the state. If anything, their claim last night should be a wakeup call for all those who sit around and complain or go and protest when polititcal speakers take the podium.....a lot of these people don't even vote. I think this shows that if you do use your voice in a constructive manner, always, using proper channels....then guess what? The day something happens to you outside of your country, you have ears because they were cultivated all along, not just the day you scream for help.

We are speaking to washington is probably just a case of generalization.  Twitty might have some high friends in Alabama who are in turn calling offices in Washington, I dont take it to mean Jug Twitty is talking to the State Department.  We could twist words until blue in the face.

I can see why you freaked out but it is a common name.  One of the Network guys at my previous employment was also named Deepak! Very Happy

My apologies if this has already been posted, but did anyone hear Tim Miller (Equusearch) say that if the team located a body, they would keep quiet about it so as not to inflame the press? I understand, though I could be wrong, that he made this statement last night on Fox.

Very interesting re; anger and Joran. This is from Riehl.

Joran v d Sloot and the Plate Glass Window
While there is currently no evidence to suggest that Joran v d Sloot threw a boy through a plate glass window, as some news reports have claimed, a reliable source has confirmed an incident on January 23 of this year which may have led to the rumor.

Fox News just said the Police Commissioner is Joran's Godfather.


Well that just thickened this plot tremendously!


Was he the one who allegedly said, "How could I do this to my best friend's son?"


If this is truely the case (and I remain skeptical that it is) the dumbass should have recused himself from the very beginning.  Not doing so makes this whole mess look like a coverup.  I would also think someone with better judgement and more to lose (i.e. political appointment) would have kicked him off the case.

Wondering if Red or Tom could edit the old Beastie Boys song "Brass Monkey" to Scared Monkey and play it in the background at night when things are slow....


Beastie Boys???  What are those?   Confused


The Beastie Boys were a popular rap/music group in the 1980's.  Brass Monkey was there biggest hit.


I wouldn't say that.  

Fight for Your Right (To Party) and No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn were bigger hits back then.

about the comment re: washington connections...

the idea that the secret service investigates anyone who contacts a senator or rep is ridiculous & indicates an exaggerated sense of paranoia.

almost *anyone* can not only speak with a legislator but also, if (s)he is connected with *any* kind of group (i'm talking even 4-h clubs), meet with him/her. at least that's how it works with the al legislators, who try, like most delegates, to stay in touch with "folks at home" (or at least try to maintain that appearance). i have no big political or financial connections but i have met with at least three of my legislators in their dc offices with small groups who were visiting washington.

and most red states have SOME kind of tie to the current administration, too. for example, a young woman from b'ham (from near the part of town where n lives, i think) is one of mrs. cheney's senior assistants. i wouldn't be at all surprised to learn they had spoken about this.

this case is huge in alabama, and in fact it is quite likely that the ht's were contacted BY their legislators rather than being the ones doing the contacting.

My friends believe that if this case is not thoroughly solved in expedient fashion, that the State Department will ban all travel to Aruba.

They said the "first step" would be to issue a travel advisory.

Until such an advisory is issued, it would mean that our government believes that the investigation is progressing.

Point taken to not make this a big issue; I retract my earlier comment.
