William Zantzinger Dies

Oh Happy Day!

The killer's only public remark about the famous song ("The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll") that Bob Dylan wrote about the infamous incident accused Dylan's song of being a "total lie". If any part of it was a lie, though, and if it served to degrade or embarrass the ratbastard killer, I am glad that the song was written. Zantzinger admitted plenty with his own voice to show his asshole rich young landowner attitude toward "the help" as being there for him to beat on for his drunken amusement. He didn't mean "no harm", he said. It cost him 6 months and $500.

You know, I'm familiar with something in my part of the South called White Trash. It used to refer to the white people who were as impoverished and ignorant and as badly-behaved as the worst of the "bad" Negroes. It was an insult to be referred to as white trash, of course. There should have been a similar term for creatures like Zantzinger, rich young white punks who thought they had it made (and they weren't wrong). They could kill, especially the blacks, and the cops, judges, and juries let them go. I don't care what anybody says, this guy Zantzinger was RICH TRASH, and it's a shame to society that he was allowed to serve so little time and to live freely with "decent society"--the other rich people--to the end of his days. He's finally dead now. Now that's a happy day!

  1. I don't know much about Maryland, but I hope they aren't too proud of their native son these days. I know they didn't mind him "back in the day". I'd be curious to see how his tombstone is marked.


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
