The twilight language explores hidden meanings and synchromystic connections via onomatology (study of names) and toponymy (study of place names). This blog further investigates "name games" and "number coincidences" found in news and history. Examinations are also found in my book The Copycat Effect (NY: Simon and Schuster, 2004).

What About Bob? Bridgewater Plaza Crime Scene
The 1991 crazy comedy, What About Bob?, was filmed at Smith Mountain Lake - the site of the Bridgewater Plaza shootings. In the movie, starring Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss, a successful psychiatrist (Dreyfuss) loses his mind after one of his most dependent patients, a highly manipulative obsessive-compulsive (Murray), tracks him down during his family vacation.
The setting for the fictional narrative was Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire, but because the leaves were turning their fall colors, the movie was filmed in and around the town of Moneta and Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia.
Quote from the film:
[Leo has a rifle pointed at Bob]
Bob Wiley (Bill Murray): What are we doing?
Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss): Death Therapy, Bob. It's a guaranteed cure.
