"I knew that Scranton would play a role in all of this. I have booked a seat on the 8:20 p.m. Greyhound out of Durham. I arrive in Scranton at 2:20 p.m., tomorrow afternoon. There is free wifi on every Greyhound bus now, there are individual power outlets, and I am told that the legroom situation has improved significantly. I'm no prima donna, but comfort matters when you are tracking leads. Today is my sixteenth wedding anniversary, but I told my wife that this is important. This comes first. She didn't reply. I have budgeted one full day in Scranton before I take the Sunday night Greyhound to Tampa in order to track down Alphonso's and ALL CAPS's leads. I am on the Express Bus, and I will arrive two days later (just before noon on Tuesday). Not bad for $252 and only 3 transfers. Watch for regular updates from the road."

I AM BILL WHITE sets out on a quest to solve the mystery of John and Suzyn - and to chase down his personal demons. 

Wish him luck.

IABW: follow the money. It's about the oil. Hint: Russia.

Go with God.

Everybody's talkin' at I'm Bill White
He don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of his mind

People stopping, staring
He can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm Bill White is going where the sun keeps shining
Through the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits his clothes

Banking off of the northeast winds
Sailing on a summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone

Wah, wah wah-wah wah
Wah-wah wah-wah, wah wah-wah
Wahhh

I'm Bill White will walk 500 miles!
And I'm Bill White will walk 500 more!
To be the I'm Bill White who walked 500 miles to sit down at your door.
TADA-DAHHHHHHHHH!

PHENOMENAL.
DON'T FORGET TO EAT AT SAM SELTZER'S STEAKHOUSE,
GREAT CREAMED SPINACH.

I'm pretty sure that in female-speak, "she didn't reply" means she's behind you 100%. Godspeed, sir.

Also, going with the creamed spinach seems like a pretty good plan.

This is already bigger than Pizzagate

This feels like a movie that makes $38 at the box office, but manages to create a buzz at the oscars and might even snag a few. I can just picture I'm Bill White telling his wife he needs to abandon her on their anniversary to do this (I have no idea what Bill is doing and I've been following this from the beginning). His wife looks at him and disbelief, huffs, shakes her head and throws her hands up in the air, all of this is as LBJ pointed out, clearly in support of her husband. He boards that bus and continues his research all while Jackson Browne's "Running on empty plays". I'm not sure what happens next but I have a feeling it ends with I'm Bill White catching up with John and Suzyn and asking them the answers he seeks, only for John's dementia to kick in and totally forget.

THIS IS KIND OF REMINDING ME OF THE MOVIE "BORAT".
IS I'M BILL WHITE SEARCHING FOR PAM-ELA?

Funny, it reminded me of this scene from The Blues Brothers.
