This may also be the same James in the title text of 950:_Mystery_Solved where it is jokenly suggested it may be an alias for Jimmy Hoffa -- or is the explanation simpler, like Jimmy is actually 'short' for James?

I do not think so. There is valid reason for using the real Jimmy, and he has nothing to do with Randall's friend.--Kynde (talk) 12:08, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
