    I have a velvelettes earworm now. There are worse earworms to have. It could be some time before I reach for the palate cleansing "Suicide is painless" by johnny mandel.

    Though I am slightly freaked out that when I typed "He" into youtube it immediately came up with what I was looking for.

    Ooooooo....the 'boys' long, long weekend without escorts all over Asia' sounds like it would have been interesting. Bill and Jeff, doing charitable work for kids and orphans and whatnot. That sounds....like something.

    How many is Bill documented for?

    I assume that you meant the Palm Beach arrest and not the much earlier financial shenanigans.

    An incredibly pissed off mother who insisted that the cops listen to her daughter and other victims.

    Ursus how did he get caught the first time, did some crying child basically wander out of his basement into the arms of a cop or something?

    Isn't that one particularly bad for the whole business of holmes gets a case, then fucks off for 3 weeks, then one day watson is in his rooms and a little old lady comes in pushing herself along on a trolley like eddie murphy in trading places, she's only three feet tall, lost her legs to a pike or something simliar, and feeble as fuck, watson turns around, and when he looks back there's holmes looming over him, telling him they need to go and commit a crime somewhere..... and then you hear some of the details later, like him getting engaged to the parlour maid.

    Or did conan doyle have his conventional narrative structure hat on for this one? Siegfried from All creatures great and small was absolutely brilliant as milverton in the Brett adaptation. That one is well worth looking for.

    I'm not at all convinced that he is primarily a blackmailer and he certainly is not a Milverton.

    FF, that is definitely a thing, but usually done with two passports from the same country. State will issue duplicates to those establishing a real need (casual visitors will have other means available).

    Bringing this up at the bail hearing is a clear attempt by the SDNY to establish his risk of flight, though it is hard to judge whether that was the primary purpose of the passport or not.

    Satchmo, my guess is that is part of it, but likely not all of it. I am also partial to Berbaslug's focus on his sense of impunity.

    He's no charles augustus milverton is he? Maybe it's a trophy and the passport originally belonged to on of his first kills?

    But there is clearly more going on with his penchant for keeping incriminating evidence.
    The whole set of criminal deeds has become a thrill for him so his cache is part of that pleasure?

    Don't some people have one passport they use to visit Israel and another to visit Arab countries? Isn't that a thing?

    Doesn't explain the fake name or address, of course, and given that it's Epstein, it's shady AF by default. I bet trump is jealous of how shady Epstein is.

    But, with the passport, what's the upside. Can you actually use an expired passport for anything? Why not just burn it?

    Well the easy answer is you think you can act with impunity. How he still felt this way, after he had been to actual fucking jail is the impressive bit.

    Odd that those documents were held at Hesse Castle, given that the hereditary duke was married to Prince Phillip's sister, and both were fairly enthusiastic Nazis, Though they both died along with two of their kids, and seemingly a newborn, when they were flying to their brother's wedding to the daughter of Lord Geddes. Apparently the child decided to make an unscheduled appearance, causing Prince Georg donatus to try and land his plane in ostend, but he ploughed it into a factory chimney. He shouldn't be confused with christoph, prince of Hesse, who was his first cousin and died fighting with the SS. He also was married to a sister of Prince Phillip. He was also at the wedding. Nor should he be confused with Phillipp Prince of Hesse, after whom Prince Phillip is named. He was also at the wedding. He joined the nazis in 1930, but by 1943 had fallen out with someone, and wound up in Dachau. He was 'liberated' from the SS by the Wehrmacht shortly before the end of the war.

    It so happens that our Frankfurt office once hosted a black tie "dinner dance" at that Schloss (which is now a five star hotel).

    This was years before I arrived, and I always looked askance at colleagues who wanted to do it again, but never knew of that part of the place's history. They are rather more up front about the fact that it was Eisenhower's HQ for several years.

    "it has always been rumoured that Anthony Blunt, at the time a Soviet spy, was sent immediately after the war to the Schloss Kronberg, home to the princes of Hesse, to retrieve documents detailing the arrangements between Edward and the Nazis. These have never been seen since, but are said to have been used by Blunt to guarantee his immunity from prosecution for his espionage activities."

    Well US papers printed a hell of a lot of stories about Edward VIII all through the war. Sadly it was more challenging to get access to the US media in the 1940s.

    Edward VIII. What stories were those (apart from his Nazi collaboration and his flirtatious wife)

    Well the story was that he was receiving his regular briefings on cabinet meetings from Chamberlain, and then sending Wallis over to Von Ribbentrop with a transcript. That's a pretty big story to keep under wraps. It also transpires that Churchill had to threaten the duke of Windsor with a court martial to get him to go back to england, and to stop hanging out with Nazi Spies. he also seemed to spend the years after the war breaking currency regulations and funnelling large sums of sterling out of the UK. He was a pretty brazen bad 'un.

    Berlusconi has always be a libertine, but his interest in much younger women came quite late in life (while there have long been rumblings that he supplemented his youthful cruise ship crooner earnings by acting as a gigolo). It has been suggested that the change reflects his obsession with his "performance", which is also reflected in the consumption of massive quantities of viagra. He also seems to fancy aspiring "showgirls" in the early 20s, that than literal schoolgirls.
