Okay Santa, it's yours. I never saw Forrest Gump. Frank Wills was the security guard at the Watergate who discovered the piece of tape that was put on one of the doors by the burglars to keep the door mechanism from locking. It was downhill from there for E Howard hunt and Gordon Liddy and the rest of the Dirty Tricks team.

Everyone who has been to San Francisco knows Robert Stroud. Good hint by the way. Robert Stroud was a raving lunatic murderer who, while in Levenworth Prison in Kansas, became an expert on Canary diseases. He later was transfered to Alcatraz where he was not allowed to work with birds but did kill a guy by ripping his veins out of his arm and bitting them off (per the tour guide at Alcatraz). People mistakenly thought he was a kind old man based on the Bert Lancastor movie, and the name Stroud is known by, THE BIRDMAN OF ALCATRAZ. People actually wanted this lunatic freed based on the movie....they didn't let him go.

Here is one: Robert Gates

Gates was Chief of Police of the LAPD when the Rodney King thing went down. I know who Gary Lockwood is but shan't play. I remember all these stupid people but can't remember what day it is....

I couldn't even delete the name to use later because I got beat to the edit.

Herman Webster Mudgett (May 16, 1861[1] – May 7, 1896[2]), better known under the alias of Dr. Henry Howard Holmes.

There was a book about him I've been meaning to read. From Wikipedia:

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America (Crown Publishers, ISBN 0609608444) is a 2003 non-fiction book by Erik Larson presented in a novelistic style. The book is based on real characters and events. Leonardo DiCaprio purchased the film rights in 2010.

Bringing Chicago circa 1893 to vivid life, "The Devil In the White City" intertwines the true tale of two men - Daniel H. Burnham, the brilliant architect behind the legendary 1893 World's Fair, striving to secure America's place in the world; and Dr. H.H. Holmes, the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death in his elaborately constructed "Murder Castle."
Make America Great Again! - Trump in 2020 ... "We're a capitalistic society. I go into business, I don't make it, I go bankrupt. They're not going to bail me out. I've been on welfare and food stamps. Did anyone help me? No." - Craig T. Nelson, actor.
