Meter Reader, Kronk, arrested in 1992 for kidnapping

Update in Caylee Anthony case:

Roy Kronk arrested for kidnapping in 1992 in South Carolina.

In his original statement he said he was assigned to work in the area where the body was found in August and again in December and did not work there any time inbetween.  Now, his employers say that he was working in the area in November.  What was so compelling in August and December, but not in November?  Explanation by his attorney:  He was just busy and didn’t have time to deal with it.

Kronk’s attorney says the kidnapping in S. C. arose out of some sort of domestic incident concerning a woman he was living with in Florida who left with another man, went to South Carolina, and subsequently called Kronk to come and get her.  The guy she was living with in S. C. charged the kidnapping.  Charges were presented to a grand jury and eventually dismissed and expunged.

Very interesting.

Baez and Scuggs – Love is just a four-letter word

Yesterday was the sixty-eighth birthday of pacifist Joan Baez.

In the video below, Earl Scruggs visits Baez at home and asks her to play the Bob Dylan song, Love is Just a Four-letter Word.

Nothing short of a wow.

Seems like only yesterday
I left my mind behind
Down in the Gypsy Cafe
With a friend of a friend of mine
She sat with a baby heavy on her knee
Yet spoke of life most free from slavery
With eyes that showed no trace of misery
A phrase in connection first with she I heard
That love is just a four-letter word

Outside a rambling store-front window
Cats meowed to the break of day
Me, I kept my mouth shut, too
To you I had no words to say
My experience was limited and underfed
You were talking while I hid
To the one who was the father of your kid
You probably didn’t think I did, but I heard
You say that love is just a four-letter word

I said goodbye unnoticed
Pushed towards things in my own games
Drifting in and out of lifetimes
Unmentionable by name
Searching for my double, looking for
Complete evaporation to the core
Though I tried and failed at finding any door
I must have thought that there was nothing more
Absurd than that love is just a four-letter word

Though I never knew just what you meant
When you were speaking to your man
I can only think in terms of me
And now I understand
After waking enough times to think I see
The Holy Kiss that’s supposed to last eternity
Blow up in smoke, its destiny
Falls on strangers, travels free
Yes, I know now, traps are only set by me
And I do not really need to be
Assured that love is just a four-letter word
