    Thanks for this wfgodot, I've just spent half an hour reading about Alcatraz - something I didn't know much about before.

    I'd like to think these men DID escape as they were ingenious in their plan, but I'd really love to find out for sure what happened next!

    Still think they got eaten by sharks. I've been there a couple of times, most recently last April at night.

    (Highly recommend the movie- Escape from Alcatraz- if you haven't seen it yet).


    I hope they did survive! I've always thought the odds seemed against them, given currents and water temps and sharks.

    That they never "surfaced" has never been proof that they died, though. Their escape plan was brilliant and determined, and I've always hoped they just had the good sense to go underground and stay there.

    (Yah, I'm cheering for the bad guys on this one).
