Memory is a Lot Less Fragile When the FBI Gets Involved


From the Topeka-Kansas Journal, a portrait of Jeanne Boylan, with her portrait of Ted Kaczynski (recognize him?) in the background. It's a pretty interesting read about her techniques in working with kids who have seen someone the police need to know about. It has a lot more to do with the art of compassion than the techniques of interrogation, which I guess is not so surprising.

More surprising was that her portrait of the Unabomber was "so accurate" (she got those sunglasses and that hood perfect) that Ted Kaczynski broke his own nose to thward identification. We can only speculate on what he used to do that, alone in the woods there, but I bet it wasn't a computer.
