I remember those days. The City of Boston was in panic mode. People were buying guard dogs and handguns. My own Grandmother installed a front door lock on her brownstone that required a key to both enter and exit the building. The only people who felt safe were men and small children. The Boston Strangler was the ultimate boogeyman in those days.

… was friendly for some years with his relatives. They were very touchy about questions about their last name. But they made great pizzas, taught him how to make them and were kind and generous otherwise.

He was the bogeyman for decades after. And now he is revived.

I heard Mark Wahlberg plays the Strangler and also the detective that catches him. According to the script there's a scene where the detective screams at the sky, "YOU MESSED WITH THE WRONG CITY, PAL!" Take my money now. This is going to be better than Cats.
