For some reason, President Barack Obama is looking like Mr. Spock from the Star Trek series. It could be the Mayan calendar which affected my perceptions and led to “Turn In Guns To Space Brothers”, the December 21, 2012 Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry.
Now, it has happened again! Looking at a photo of Adam Lanza, alleged killer in the Sandy Hook incident of December 14, 2012, I seemed to be seeing Ichabod Crane, from Washington Irving’s tale, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”!
Ichabod Crane, “sojourned, or, as he expressed it, ‘tarried,’ in Sleepy Hollow, for the purpose of instructing the children of the vicinity. He was a native of Connecticut…”
Had Adam Lanza been sent over from Central Casting? Or were the Space Brothers messing with my mind?
Washington Irving tells us that Ichabod Crane “was tall, but exceedingly lank, with narrow shoulders, long arms and legs, hands that dangled a mile out of his sleeves, feet that might have served for shovels, and his whole frame most loosely hung together. His head was small, and flat at top, with huge ears, large green glassy eyes, and a long snipe nose, so that it looked like a weathercock perched upon his spindle neck, to tell which way the wind blew.”
Katie Zezima of Associated Press tells us it has “emerged” that Adam Lanza “used to slither through the hallways, awkwardly pressing himself against the wall while wearing the same green shirt and khaki pants every day.” (“A week after school massacre, new details emerge”, AP, circa December 22, 2012)
Did Lanza “tarry to instruct the children” as he “slithered” through the hallways?
Washington Irving described Ichabod Crane as “the genius of famine descending upon the earth, or some scarecrow eloped from a cornfield.” Is that why I looked at the photo of Adam Lanza and perceived Ichabod Crane?
Of course, “the headless horseman” also figures in Washington Irving’s tale. Did Adam Lanza have a driver’s license? That nugget has apparently not yet “emerged.” Did Adam Lanza even have any experience driving a car? We do not know. So the “horse” might be a car and Adam Lanza with no driver’s license might be the “headless horseman.”
Adam Lanza, the “headless horseman”, was slithering through the hallways. He was spotted by an “assault rifle” which had itself been possessed by an alien intelligence. The alien intelligence inhabiting the “assault rifle” saw Lanza and asked, “Adam, do you have a driver’s license?”
“I don’t know,” answered Lanza. “That has not yet emerged.”
“Well, can you at least drive a car?” demanded the alien intelligence inhabiting the “assault rifle.”
But Lanza had to confess to the “assault rifle” that whether he had ever even driven a car had not yet “emerged.”
At this point the alien intelligence inside the “assault rifle” became exasperated. It then just simply took over control of “headless horseman” Lanza and proceeded to drive itself places where it could vent its inner needs.
