Where Is Jimmy Hoffa?

Since we're 'digging' up the past with all these other threads, just thought I'd ask. We recently passed the 40th anniversary of his disappearance. I was heading into my JR yr of HS when he vanished.

Some people can really keep a secret.

The first rule about fight club is you don’t talk about fight club…

He is gone into the ether. Nobody can find no body. He must be eating at the restaurant at the end of the universe, with Elvis.

Hoffa dated J Edgar in drag and was killed because he didn`t like his dress.

That is amazing it's been 40 years, I was 20 years old then. You're right about keeping a secret, I'm sure they didn't want to suffer the same fate. I wonder if any of them are still living, what a thing to live with.

In the early 80's I frequently dropped off my college room mate in the Red Fox parking lot near his home. I never saw Hoffa in the lot, but I also never looked under the blacktop...

Really?? I missed that one.
You sure it wasn't Howard Cosell? That sounds like something Howard would say.
