Cooper was a real character. I always thought his biggest problem was a complete lack of a filter between his brain and his mouth.
I could never get myself to take him very seriously, at least not at the time. It's a lot more interesting looking back, though. I still have a copy
of "Behold A Pale Horse" around here somewhere.
I was a big "Warez" BBS sysop back then, and our "internet" basically consisted of things like "FidoNet" and "uucp". I just remember someone putting
up this huge batch of zipped text files, all conspiracy stuff, which included lots of stuff about him.
I could never get behind his "Driver killed JFK with a fish toxin gun" thing.
Damned interesting fella, though, and he did at least play some part in starting me down the rabbit hole. I imagine he actually started a LOT of
folks down the abyss.
Looking back on it in context, it'll definitely make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. I may even still have that zip file somewhere in
the embarrassingly large collection of floppy diskettes that I just can't make myself throw away.
Sigh. Damn, the 80s were fun.
Nice to see an OP about it too, kudos to you.
