Zodiac had a penchant for over postage and since Vallejo was further away than the other two addresses which were in San Fran, I think he just doubled up on his doubling up. So to speak.


Graysmith had a neat idea about the stamps on the cipher letters, he put 2 on the paper that got the 1st part of the cipher, 3 on the one that got part 2, and 4 on the one that got part 3, maybe trying to keep track somehow.


Not be pendantic or something but I remember reading this from yesterday.

Graysmith had an interesting take on which one was which, and which order they should go in. He mentioned that one envelope had 1 stamp,the next had 2 stamps, and the last had 3 stamps

Yep, and he was wrong, as usual.

More or less the line seems seperated in 3 units, "This", "is the Zodiac" and "speaking". Sometimes the word "speaking" goes downwards just to keep up with this scheme. Who would do such a thing?! Typographical awareness?


Not to tear apart your "this is the zodiac" topic and believing that its still in line with the subject, but his antics in this line, are not the only place. You can see it as well in the 7/69 letter where he mentions what other papers he wrote to, specifically, where he mentions the Vallejo Times and then leaves a large space after. He ends up busting apart the word examiner rather than adjusting the space. To me its like he is trying to put focus to the Vallejo Times rather than Vallejo Times Herald.

It's things like this. As I've said before, who does this kind of things? He likes to leave a bit of extra spacing behind the name of something or someone, and is OCD about it.
