Some will love me for it, others will hate me, but I really liked a lot of the tracks on Kid Rock's breakthrough LP Devil Without a Cause (more so than anything he's done since), particularly Bawitdaba which mentions "D.B. Cooper and the money he took." Thirty eight years ago today a man known by the name D.B. Cooper hijacked a 727, successfully received $200,000 in ransom and parachuted from the plane, probably as it flew over an area somewhat north of Portland, Oregon. This remains the FBI's only unsolved domestic hijacking case and it has generated mucho musings and pop references. There's a good chance the guy just didn't survive the jump (an explanation the FBI naturally favors) but no body has ever been recovered. Although in 1980 an eight year old kid found $5,880 of the original ransom money in decaying $20 bills while camping on the banks of the Columbia river near Portland, OR.
