Each time something is retold, it changes. Example umpteenth: I did not say it "could just be a tic," I said it 1/, "might have been a vestige" of the capitalization rules he learned in the 19th century, or 2/, it could have been a tic. Best, Dan

P.S. The idea, by the way, that BC might have been writing in code, is, um, how shall I put it, far fetched. What, Dan Parker (1890), Rosa Warner (1896), and the colleagues at Concordia (1907) all were working off the same code?

    It could just be a tic as you say. I guess we will never know. :)

        Was a simple comment, but since you want to go down this road..... Your right when something is retold it changes. You are no exception. It is NOT as you state Dan Parker, Rosa Warner, and Concordia. ... more

          Chris, The rule that ever time something is retold it changes is universal, it applies to everyone, even me. Smile. Dan PS Putting words in ALL CAPS is cute.

            Just because he is a criminal does not make him stupid as you have stated before. A very ignorant comment on your part. I and others think just the opposite. He was very intelligent. Using code would ... more

              This is a very interesting question: Did the WB have any sort of "code" they used to communicate with? They did have a series of drop locations for letters and communiques. Would they have been... more

                Im with you. Secret mail locations is all I know about. Would be neat if there was a secret code. I doubt it, but you never know ;)

                  Unless somehow I missed or read and forgot that they had such a cryptographic system, only someone who who had really good lore knowledge of the WB, who likely would need to have spoken to some... more

                    I doubt theres anything to a "secret code" lol, but it definitely wouldn't be done with a decoder ring. Possibly something like acrostic cyphering. This was used a long time before Butch came along... more
