The multi-tentacle nature of memory associations makes it incredibly difficult to put specific references in order. You can expect to have a hard time assimilating everything. That’s why I included so many pictures. And the fact that there is so much to deal with is the reason the Bundy killer and the producer of Murder in Greenwich couldn’t keep some association errors out of murder/frame-up or the movie.
You know that I am fascinated by errors and where they come from. Every time I go back to a chapter I have written I find errors – not just typos – but things like names and dates inserted in the wrong places. I even found where I wrote that John Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1962 instead of ’63. In a February post I wrote “Martha Moxley” when I intended to write Dorothy Moxley. When I put this stuff to the side and come back to it I can see no only the errors but what was going on in my mind when I made them. I can see the same thing with the association errors other people make if I know enough about them.
The trick to making the task of following the links easier is to put aside your associations long enough to make the connections in the book from one idea to anther. To write the books I often had to put aside many links between Fuhrman and the movies to write about others. That’s why I couldn’t say everything I wanted to say about the red dresses, the diamond or the “Hacker” in one chapter. All of these things branch off into too many directions. Nobody can follow them all – not even the Bundy killer or the Murder in Greenwich producer (the same patterns – the same guy).
You might not have to go back to the other book (written before I saw Murder in Greenwich or read the book). I am now almost finished with chapter 11. When I finish chapter 12 I’m going back to chapter one and start putting in links to key references in the other books. So far it looks as though something from every chapter of the first two books is in Murder in Greenwich. The hyperlinks will make them easier to find.
One more thing…
The diamond is important to Fuhrman for the reason’s you mentioned but it is also important in regard to the McKinny tapes. As much as Fuhrman talks about basketball being his favorite sport, and as much as we know about O.J. being a football player, most of Fuhrman’s sports metaphors are baseball metaphors, particularly ones involving the pitcher and the batter (players on the diamond). In the tape where he brags about beating up a black suspect without leaving marks he says he takes him to the baseball diamond. From the context it looks like the baseball diamond was a regular place he took people to beat them up. In Murder in Greenwich he uses “Hacker” smashing a pumpkin with a baseball bat as a visual metaphor for Michael hitting Martha in the head with a golf club. His letter to the city attorney suggests that O.J. used a baseball bat on his Mercedes Benz (a German car named after the daughter of the original manufacturer) as a symbol for striking his German wife. – Jasper.
