Re: Double Shock

Thank you for your reply John,

(1) yes, you are probably right, they wanted to lead the police to the dead end by this behaviour

(2) ok, so that is what I meant by killing two birds with one stone, that confirms it
(3) I didn't know it was so easy (and cheap) then :)
(4) maybe it is my english but I thought "tie" is something else than "necktie". And as I am saying real Norman (the gambler) had only a tie :)

Re: Double Shock

Back in those days you can walk into an airport and pay cash right out of your pocket for an airplane ticket. Without anybody giving any second thought to it. And the LA to Las Vegas run probably ran on the hour. So it would be simple to hop a plane over there. I don't even think that it's a full hour flight more like about 40 minutes.

And according to Columbo in Murder by the Book LA to San Diego and back was every half hour. Just throwing that in.........
