Haven’t we gotten to the point where we can just admit that we probably aren’t ever going to find out what happened to Jimmy Hoffa? Well, sure…we probably know what happened. I mean, we probably aren’t going to find out the specifics. We probably aren’t going to actually find Hoffa.
But, hope springs eternal as evidenced by this article. Yet another person has come forward with a tip that people are hoping could lead to the final resting spot of Hoffa…just like all the other times. Frankly, even the police are skeptical. They’re checking it out, because it could be evidence of some crime, but they aren’t really thinking this is Hoffa.
I mean, seriously. Jimmy Hoffa disappeared in 1975. That was almost forty years ago. Tips and rumors have come in for years and years, none of which have ever located Hoffa. Based on the tips, there are few places where Hoffa isn’t. He must get around quite a bit.
This was even an obsession back in the heyday of Bloom County. The character Milo used to accuse the minor character Senator Bedfellow of bumping off Hoffa on a regular basis. I remember one cartoon in particular where Milo believes he has located Hoffa in Senator Bedfellow’s pond. “That’s a frog!” screams Senator Bedfellow.
Seriously, there is a chance we could someday learn the full truth about Hoffa…but it isn’t very probable. It is far more likely at this point we will just never know the full truth. I know Hoffa buffs want to know, but I’m just not thinking that’s going to happen.
