The Spirit of The Carolands

It was a great venue for one of the Rotary Club of Burlingame fundraisers...I just wanted to light a cigar, have a big band strike up, and invite an attractive woman to dance...with late night skeet shooting, poker and hot tubs to follow as the place was built to host...but, alas the place was sparsely populated by self-righteous, climber, blue hairs and mental midget realtors trying to wield machismo jabs in the place of intellectual conversations and witty statements. Frankly, that's why private clubs exist.


The assaults and murder happened in 1985.


I'll take your word for it, Fred. My misteak in passing along a timeframe from hearsay. I recall the event, but not the year very well. Thank you, as always.


Maybe not the most appropriate item before Christmas but it's a pretty complete article: http://www.mercurynews.com/2014/09/16/carolands-mansion-murder-survivor-laurie-mckenna-speaks-20-years-later/
