Back of the Book

A lot of this program was devoted to R. Paul's reminiscence of the guy he'd known as Little John Basso 42 years ago who turned out to be John Wojtowicz who became famous for trying, and failing, to rob a bank. There's a movie coming out about Little John, and the publicity around it has sparked some old memories.

We have had another death of a past WBAI producer this fortnight. Steve Post, former free-form live radio producer and General Manager of WBAI has passed away at age 70. Steve Post started out as the bookkeeper at WBAI, and it turned out that he couldn't do that job at all. So he was put on the air and then made General Manager of the radio station. Yes, we cherish our traditions here at WBAI. The station has a memorial Web page for Steve Post.

We spoke a little bit about the Ebola outbreak in west Africa. Ebola had been a village killer, now it's spreading to more densely populated areas. The World Health Organization (WHO) is reporting that there are now 2,127 cases of the deadly disease known in west Africa, but the WHO is also saying that, "the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak." The WHO expects that the outbreak will continue for another six months. This could give it more of a chance to spread around the world. Not good news.

We talked a little bit about our visits to Coney Island this past fortnight. We talked about boulders being brought to the site of the community garden that was obliterated there some months ago. Pickles of the North reported on the windows on the upper floors of the landmarked Shore movie theater and hotel being removed, along with the window frames. There is speculation about who is doing this and why.

We talked about not getting any new snail mail. Pickles, who's been looking through it all for the past four programs, thinks that there has not been a new batch of mail dumped in Master Control since the initial one early in July. Correspondents are encouraged to use E-mail to contact us. We may need to find another solution for snail mail.

We talked about the big news story this past fortnight where a company claimed that Russian hackers had stolen over 1.2 billion passwords and more than 400,000 E-mail addresses. In the media that do not bother with things like critical thinking this was reported along with advice to change all passwords. We've looked into this a bit and there is a possibility that this alleged massive hack never happened.

Meanwhile, the USB malware exploit on the firmware of USB flash drives that we talked about on the last program was demonstrated at the Black Hat USA 2014 conference this past fortnight. It looks like the Universal Serial Bus is going to have to be hardened against such hacks.

I now have 35 followers on Twitter. I'd gotten back up to 33 this past fortnight, and then two more seem to have followed after they'd read that I was going to talk about Little John. We'll take new followers any way we can get them!
