    Well, interesting responses. I can clarify/muddle a few things. I don't remember Bill's last name, although I realize I must have known it from the envelopes. About the envelopes, I remember now what they were. Finally, after we must have thought he was gone for good, someone opened them. They were bills for PO boxes.

    About being an assassin, believe it or not, we had a political assassination on campus around then. A professor from eastern Europe had been writing articles critical of his home government. One day, he went into a restroom near his department, where someone in the next stall apparently leaned over and shot him in the top of the head.

    The other thing about assassins, is that university grad student life is highly unregulated, especially once the student is at the dissertation stage. One of the spy novels I used to read, had a super-assassin living among fluid student apartment situations.

    While I'm thinking about it, I remember having a room-mate who had been a member of the Red Guard in China, and who still held onto her political beliefs. After the premiere of a new electronic music composition of mine, she really laid into me for writing music that was not accessible by the people. I loved those experiences.

    Who cares about Bill? We need to know more about Larry's Angels.

    I'm thinkin' FBI safehouse. Probably set up for some undercover campus music teacher that if his cover was ever blown, he could easily hide out there until the FBI could rescue him. ;)

    Larry F,
    After reading "About the envelopes, I remember now what they were. Finally, after we must have thought he was gone for good, someone opened them. They were bills for PO boxes." I'm gonna bet that "Bill" had some kind(s) of mail fraud type scams going on. Maybe something like: "If you send me $5, I'll tell you how I make money!" FWIW, that's actually a brilliant scheme and not really illegal, if you send each sucker a note detailing how you get folks to send you $5 each! Of course, what ends up making it unlawful, is not declaring such earnings, due to not figuring out how to declare it without admitting to sorta running a scam! I've got that figured out though, simply declare it as "Consultant" fees!:D
    Kill Bill!
    Gene

    Oh, and:

    "If you send me $5, I'll tell you how I make money!" :p :lol: :D

    2 thoughts:

    A friend-of-a-friend lived in Boston once upon a time, and had some shady dealings with her landlord, who was supposedly a mafiosi. That mostly circled around paying for everything in cash, only using certain laundromats, and not minding any weird noises around the apartment. Bill may have been involved with organized crime.

    Secondly, is it remotely possible that Bill were some kind of weird, off-the-grid hippy type?

    Bill obviously needed a real street address to use, without putting himself at risk by actually living there. Some applications, like local bank accounts and CC's, won't accept PO boxes.

    Yes, I think the real story we're wanting to know more about is definitely Larry's Angels… and for that matter, are you sure Bill's name wasn't actually Charlie?

    Could Bill in fact be Waldo? And if so, where is he?

    My money is on him hiding from a very persistent stalker who later had a top 10 tell-all hit.
