@Smctopia - Good eye, based on a YouTube video, you're correct!

That small clip of the commercial at the end looks like it was from Tomy's Fashion Plates.

I knew a girl in college who was named Jorie after Jorie Lueloff. She was sweet but not very bright, and a number of us took turns helping her get through a course, a task that became known as Jorie duty.

Shows you what happens when they pronounce an assailant's name, as they did here . . . but thanks for the background info of "what happened next." It's things like this that make this as much an historical reference guide as everything else.

I vividly remembered this incident the day it happened. It actually started Thursday afternoon April 3rd and concluded early Saturday morning April 5th with the hostage being released unharmed and the suspect being taken into custody. The suspect, whose name was actually John Pasch, Jr, shot and killed his landlord and then murdered Chicago Police Officer Richard Clark who was the first responder on the scene. The cops actually used bright spotlights on Pasch's house to wear him out on the second night of the drama to get him to finally surrender. Then Police Superintendent Fred Rice also encouraged him to give up and he did. Pasch was convicted of his crimes and was sentenced to death when Illinois still had the death penalty. However, Pasch would die of natural causes while in prison in September 1993.

Hands up if any of you remember (as I do) Buster's ads promoting his line of swimming pools for use in the home.
