Cyranoville Letter Writer In this weeks episode Vonia covers Steve Martins interpretation of Cyrano de Bergerac, Roxanne! It’s a tale as old as time. Man with huge nose falls in love with beautiful woman. Beautiful woman falls for local hottie. Local hottie is a complete moron so man with huge nose writes love letters to beautiful woman on his behalf. You know that typical old song and dance. There are certainly aspects of this movie that don’t pass the smell test (HAHA!!!) but it’s still an awful lot of fun. I mean Steve Martin wrote it so you know it’s a good time!Then Averyn tells the, will it ever be solved, mystery of the Circleville Letter Writer. In 1976 the residents of Circleville, Ohio started receiving anonymous letters written in strange block lettering that aimed to share everyone’s darkest secrets (and it turned out there were A LOT of dirty little secrets). These letters would continue to be sent out regularly for almost two decades. The effects were catastrophic with one man dying (possibly murdered), an attempt on a local woman’s life, and a possibly innocent man spending 10 years in prison. The identity of the Circleville Letter Writer is still unknown (according to some) and with the last letter having been sent almost 30 years ago will the truth ever come to light?

If you live in Southern California then you know Zankou, you love Zankou, you’d marry Zankou’s incredible garlic paste if you could. Zankou Chicken started as a small mom and pop restaurant in Beirut in the early 1960s and when the family moved to Los Angeles in the early 80s and opened up a spot in East Hollywood a staple of every Angelinos diet was born. When the eldest son of owners Vartkes and Margerit, Mardiros, wanted to open more locations his parents agreed as long as they didn’t have to own or run the additional restaurants. The family became a great success. Why then, a year after a terminal cancer diagnosis, did Mardiros wake up one day, grab two guns, and drive to his sisters house killing both her and his mother before turning the gun on himself?

The only clues at first were that the victims had all been last seen at popular New York City piano bars before they disappeared.
