Remember That Riddle About Grant's Tomb ?
Okay now, I remind everyone that the Col was DEFENDING Debra Tate from the human detritus known as OOGLER over at the Yahoo KTS Message Boards when this all started. I felt bad for the woman.
Since then I have been innundated with emails about what a piece of work she apparently is. The Debra Haters REALLY hate on her. Like wowsa.
NOW the Col starts to get information as to why.
Let's start. The Col is trying to leave town this weekend on a project that will take him away from the sunshine for 4 months. But he still had time to play Columbo and follow up a lead. This is not a news blog, but I did some reporting anyway.
I went to Holy Cross Cemetary. Sharon, her baby, her mother and her sister are buried there clear as day. But no dad. Why would my fellow Col NOT be buried in the family plot? Just to make sure I spoke with Elena at the front office. No record of a Paul Tate in the whole cemetary. There's a Paul Cook from May 05 but no Paul Tate.
I drove back past Sony and stopped at the Wendy's for breakfast. My source was correct. Debra, as sole next of kin, did not bury her father with the rest of his family. His grandchildren do not know where he is buried. Did she do it because he left everything to Patti's children so she couldn't sell it (more on that later) as my source claims? Did she do it to be a cheapass? Where is the old geezer?
NOW maybe this is not news to any of you and I am lame and this was discussed on a Debra Lovers site months ago. Or maybe this is news.
But Paige or Chris or one of the other idolizers, somebody ask them wtf. Where is Paul Tate? And why?
I hope he's not doing WEEKEND WITH THE COL films somewhere.
