I just read “The Legend of Goatman” (9/18/98) today—it was pointed out to me by a friend. I went to Friendly Senior High in Friendly (actually Oxon Hill), Md., in the ’70s and first heard the Goatman story there. In the 1974 Friendly yearbook, there are mentions of a “notorious window beast” that just might be a weak link to the Goatman tales. Thanks for bringing back some fun memories and providing a well-written article.
