Pardon the levity, but I couldn’t help noticing a similarity between Zubeidat Tsarnaev, mother of alleged Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar, and Perini Scleroso, the SCTV character invented by Andrea Martin. The above video clip shows Perini Scleroso (wearing a scarf) receiving English lessons from Lucille Hitzger (Catherine O’Hara).
Now compare Perini Scleroso with Zubeidat Tsarnaev, shown above being interviewed in Russia on April 25, 2013.
Like I said, “Pardon the levity.” Of course there is great sorrow in the hearts of both those victimized by the Boston incident as well as the Tsarnaev family, who have lost one son and may eventually lose another, if Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is sentenced to death.
In the Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of April 24, 2013 (“Meet the Tsarnaevs”), a preliminary introduction to the Tsarnaev family was offered. There we were introduced to Maret Tsarnaeva, aunt of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar, Ruslan Tsarni, their uncle, Anzor Tsarnaev, their father, and his wife Zubeidat, tearful mother of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar. I did not then have much information on Zubeidat, other than that she is an Avar, a Caucasian native ethnic group predominant in Dagestan.
Now however we have learned that the mother of the accused Boston Marathon bombers has suggested a conspiracy in which American police captured her older son alive and murdered him! (“Zubeidat Tsarnaev, Marathon Bombing Suspects Mother, Says Police Murdered Her Son”, Huffington Post, April 25, 2013)
In “Meet the Tsarnaevs” (op. cit.), Ersjdamoo’s Blog foresaw a “Trial of the Century” emerging. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be receiving an actual trial, as an accused civilian. Unless that old bugaboo “National Security” forbids it, we could be seeing extensive, live coverage of the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev trial on television, complete with “expert analysis” by the likes of Dominick Dunne. Additional drama could be provided by star witnesses such as Maret Tsarnaeva, Ruslan Tsarni, Anzor Tsarnaev, and Zubeidat Tsarnaev. Instead of some crummy public defender, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev could be represented by a Johnnie Cochran type, offering his services pro bono. (“If the backpack doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”) The whole world, glued to their television sets, would learn about and marvel at the American system of jurisprudence.
“Opportunity knocks,” concluded Ersjdamoo’s Blog in “Meet the Tsarnaevs” (op. cit.). Regardless of how the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev “Trial of the Century” concluded, each of the Tsarnaev family (who seem like basically good people to me, in spite of what Tamerlan and Dzhokhar may have done) could write best-selling books giving readers the “true story (at last!)”.
Also in the “opportunity knocks” department is strange things in Mississippi. An Elvis Presley impersonator, Paul Kevin Curtis, had been accused of sending poison-pen ricin letters to President Barack Obama and others. Charges against Mr. Curtis have since been dropped and the bloodhounds are now sniffing in the locality of Tupelo, Mississippi, birthplace of the real Elvis Presley, for other suspects. In the Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of April 19, 2013 (“Elvis Impersonator Nabbed in Terror Attack”), it was seriously argued that the real Elvis Presley might still be alive. What a great book this all would make for Paul Kevin Curtis! And it turns out Mr. Curtis has already written a book, “Missing Pieces”! It all “began on the day I accidentally discovered a refrigerator full of dismembered body parts & organs wrapped in plastic in the morgue of the largest non-metropolitan healthcare organization in the United States of America, AKA North Mississippi Medical Center,” claims Paul Kevin Curtis. Strange things in Mississippi! The ghost of Elvis (or is it the real Elvis), a secret body parts business, and danger to our beloved President! All roads lead to Tupelo in this gripping mystery.
