    Some towns and counties have cancer clusters. Others have high rates of traffic fatalities or foreclosures. ....In New York, Long Island has been grappling with its own disturbing demographic:

    Three serial killers who targeted the same type of victims have operated in the same tidy suburbs in the span of 22 years.....Since 1989, when the first victim was killed, the three have been active in Long Island’s two counties — Suffolk and Nassau — in apparently unrelated cases.

    Joel Rifkin, a 34-year-old unemployed landscaper from East Meadow, confessed to killing 17 women he said were prostitutes following his arrest in 1993.

    Robert Shulman, a 42-year-old postal worker from Hicksville, was convicted of killing five prostitutes after he was arrested in 1996.

    The third killer has yet to be apprehended, but the police know that he or she exists: the bodies of eight people — at least four of them female prostitutes — have been found in the thick brush near a Suffolk County beach since December.

    It is a phenomenon that, though rare, has occurred elsewhere. Beginning in the early 1980s, at least five serial killers terrorized the South Los Angeles area, including Lonnie Franklin Jr., whom the police accused of being the so-called Grim Sleeper (he took a hiatus from 1988 to 2002).

    Serial-killer experts and others offered a host of theories for the cluster phenomenon. Several said it was a fluke of geography. Still others said it was, in a sense, an illusion: Other cities and regions could have just as many or even more serial killers in their midst, but their patterns have not yet been detected by the police.

    So I like Long Island, shoot me.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    If the third serial killer on Long Island is also Jewish, that should be more interesting than the geography. Who ever heard of a chain of Jewish serial killers?

    They can hold the pole with their split hooves but they can't tie hooks or bait them very well.

    That's how they want it.

    Striped bass are most often caught using shining spinners as lures not live bait .Generally they follow schools of chum and feed in a frenzy by herding them towards the shoreline and striking anything reflecting light that attracts them .Chum have white under bodies with silvery scales .

    The last time I went stripper fishing there was a channel through the breakwater to the open sea just off of the beach...You could see the chum running in a great school in a panic through the channel while the big strippers were going through the school gobbling them up .

    We generally had several surf rods set up in tubes stuck in the sand .When the school went through we had stripper strikes on every rod ,exiting times for the normally boring life of a surf fisherman .

    I've never been to Long Island, only to Manhattan.


    Is there a lot of privacy? Are there a lot of good dumping grounds for bodies?
