“Whitaker the Cockatoo” by Artist Kathy Boortz. Photographed by J R Compton.

If you read my blog, you know I have an Umbrella Cockatoo and Maine Coon Cats - kept very far apart from each other! So I was so happy when I saw this clever Cockatoo sculpture by Kathy Boortz.

What can you do with found objects? This sculpture is made with found pliers for the body (Whitaker brand), rebar for the feet, and it stands 6.5″.

You can find more of Kathy Boortzes’ birds at the Dallas Arts Review here. All photos by J R Compton.

Another “pliers’ bird”, is Kathy Boortzes’ “Starling”, 2010, found and sculpted metal and wood. Photo by J R Compton.

Such A Strange Name, Like Mine...

Klebold = Klee’bold ~ Theibault = Tee’boldt

Miss Kristen Thiebault, who described Mr. Klebold as having been her ”best friend,” said (TCM) members of the group often stayed up late at one another’s homes, watching movies or playing Goldeneye, a video game on Nintendo 64.

“We’d all get on our four controllers and shoot each other up as many times as we could,” she said, standing on the front stoop of the Harris home today after dropping off a bunch of fire-orange roses and a card for his parents. ”Eric and Dylan always lost,” she said, recalling that they would be particularly upset when they were beaten by girls. ”It was just this constant battle of who kills who.” Source

Kristen Theibault at 25 - 6/10/2008

This post is entirely speculative so make of it what you will. ;) I’ve always felt that Dylan dropped an important ‘hint’ by way of his journal musings that ‘the girl’s’ name was ‘strange like his own name’. That would narrow down the possibilities of at least, one girl, the first girl he fell in love with and focused his attention on for an undetermined length of time. I’ve also considered blonde haired Erin Boortz of the same grade level: Dylan and Erin — first names that have a similar patterning to his own. But hands down, the phonetic sound of Theibault and Klebold rhyme perfectly, mirroringly intertwined. Theibault is a name of french origins but that doesn’t matter - because american english speaking high school students wouldn’t bother using the correct french pronunciation 'tee'bo’ , they would definitely literally pronounce all of the letters. As with 'Klebold’, you could use the long ‘ee’ or short ‘e’ and finish off with the hard ‘t’ or ‘dt’ ending: Tee’bolt or Tee’boldt - - 'Klee'bold’ or 'Klee'boldt’.

People tend to focus on Dylan’s Acrostic poem referencing the ‘mystery girl’ with the ten letters in her name and while that is an equally valid ‘clue’, it simply amounts to it potentially being a clue meant for another that Dylan was pining for at a certain point in time.The same goes for his unsent (?) 'Love Love’ [1 and 2] The letter mentions: “I was in class with you 1st semester, and was blessed with being with you in a report. I still remember your laugh, innocent, beautiful, pure. This semester I still see you - rarely. I am entranced during 5th period, as we both have it off.” However, since Kristen was a grade level below Dylan, it disqualifies her because they wouldn’t be in the same class together collaborating on a report. The only mixed grade level classes appear to be gym and bowling. Also, the way Dylan drops hints as to how the girl should know him in the love letter sounds as though they are mostly acquaintances. He is secretly infatuated with her after having worked with her on that report, he sees her in the hall in passing, and she knows him just a bit. Sort of the slide-long glances in the hallway and Dylan blushing and smiling each time he catches her eye type thing.

It’s doubtful the the love letter was intended for Kristen because Dylan knew Kristen. Based on his journal entries, they would’ve met late summer/early fall ‘97 before the start of his junior year and her sophomore year likely at some friend party or get-together. They crossed paths with mutual friends-of-friends sort of thing as Dylan mentions “her friends, who I know - some-” Kristen had more of an 'in’ with the the original, core '97-98 TCM crowd and Dylan (and Eric) were only following on the heels of that crowd from '98-99. As a sophomore and junior, Kristen hung out with TCMers Joe Stair “Kristen’s Foos-ball at Joes” (See above yearbook group photo) , Nicole Markham (gf of Chris Morris), Alex Marsh, Tad Boles, Corey Friesen, Krista Hanley, Pauline Colby, Robert Perry, Brian Sargent and Joe Stair. Dylan’s dad even knew Kristen enough to mention her in his account because she participated in the same Fantasy Baseball league with Dylan and apparently, had even been over to his house!

Judging by Corey Friesen’s statement, it sounds as though near the end.. say, March or April ‘99, Dylan had just perhaps one date with Kristen and they “supposedly had a good time.” Alex Marsh also alludes that the two seemed to have some sort of dating connection but it’s not first hand knowledge only a rumor that they had gone out together. So, somewhere along the line, Dylan and Kristen ended up going out on a 'date’ of sorts very close to NBK. I wonder if she was the one he’d been working up the nerve to call: Jan 20, '99: “I love you [redacted], always have, will.” - and - “…I don’t know if I should call her, or wait for Fate to act.”. Also, in Dylan’s first draft practice love letter, he writes at the bottom in parentheses (“I DID try to call you but you must have been asleep”) But, hmm, again, I think that based on the content of that love letter, it’s in reference to another girl, that he didn’t really have a friendship with and he knew she likely wasn’t aware that he felt that way about her. So in the case of the draft letter, he was also trying to work up the nerve to call this other girl.(poor guy, what a struggle just to make some sort of connection.)

Incidentally, the 11k only has one tiny paragraph on Kristen’s account. She went to go see Robert Perry during 4/20. (Ironically, Perry was Dylan’s mistaken look-alike described by quite a few witnesses on 4/20 .) Her witness statement never even mentions any incidence of knowing both Eric and Dylan, let alone knowing Dylan well enough that she hung out and even dated him. I find that, well.. kind of strange. Surely, there must be a good reason for the investigators sloppily omitting her connections with Dylan? Oh, and Erin Boortz? There doesn’t appear to be an account from her at all the 11K. (if someone knows where her statement is, please point me to it. :) ). Is this just coincidental bad investigating on Jeffco’s part or what? Things that make you go, hmm..

It might be a bit of a leap connecting Kristen with Dylan by merely last names that strangely sound alike in rhythm - and yet, it makes an uncanny, lucid sort of sense - the kind that makes you shiver a bit. It seems to resonate. The approach to the unending riddle of Dylan’s True Love can easily be just as figurative as this or as literal as counting letters in girl’s names based on grade level and making them fit Dylan’s acrostic. In the end though, question make answers, and answers conceive questions and since Dylan conceives of many True Love possibilities ;) , the deductions are..infinitely everlasting? Basically, it simply amounts to us getting Jeffco to redact the black marks off the redacted and we all know that isn’t about to happen. :-/ I guess we’ll have to hope for some tidbit that Sue Klebold tosses our way with the release of her book. On second thought though, she is probably in the same boat with the rest of us regarding her son’s beautiful little secrets.

So the president would prevent seniors from getting their Social Security checks rather than taking back that $2 million of our money the California Academy of Sciences is going to use to photograph ants in the Southwest Indian Ocean? Or cancelling funding for the Aqua City Water Park in Dunkirk, New York? Does Mr. Obama really think that spending a half-million dollars on studying atmospheric circulation on Neptune is more important than seniors getting their Social Security checks? Why wouldn’t our president consider reducing farm and ethanol subsidy payments rather than withholding Social Security checks? What about those Northwestern University students who are spending nearly a million bucks to create a machine that makes up jokes? Maybe that machine would consider Obama’s comments to be a joke … most of America certainly does. Perhaps it’s time for Obama to consider acting presidential as we deal with our debt crisis instead of acting like a partisan hack.

Interesting website names

Got this from Neal Boortz:

Unfortunate Website Names
All of these are legitimate companies that didn’t spend quite enough time considering how their online names might appear …. and be misread.
1. Who Represents is where you can find the name of the agent that represents any celebrity. Their Web site is

2. Experts Exchange is a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at

3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at

4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at

5. There’s the Italian Power Generator company, 
(Under construction)

6. If you’re looking for IP computer software, there’s always

7. The First Cumming Methodist Church Web site is

8. And the designers at Speed of Art await you at their wacky Web site,


I used to be a Hannity-Style conservative until I started listening to Boortz, and I read Bastiat’s The Law and Rand’s Atlas Shrugged on his recommendation. Him interviewing Ron Paul is kind of like a conversation between my political Moses and Elijah.
