last drinks before the bar closes
Sat 30 Dec 2023, 1:34 pmgreg_parker
I am just about to have lunch and then tend to some other things. After that, I will be heading into the admin area to try and work out how to stop member registrations and make the entire site "read only".

I know there are a number of great threads in progress. If it had not been for Tony starting another forum, I probably would defer closure while those threads play out - but there is no …
The Mystery of Dirk Thomas Kunert
Fri 29 Dec 2023, 3:08 pmgreg_parker
In September 1963, the University of Dallas welcomed a foreign exchange student from West Germany - Dirk Thomas Kunert.

The 22 year old soon fell in with the student supporters of General Walker. It is hard to imagine that he didn't also hang out with those fun guys from CUSA - though I have no evidence for that.

Kunert's name came up after the assassination as possibly having something to do …
In alpha order but not necessarily alpha male order, Alan Ford, Brian Doyle, Robert Groden - TIME TO GET EXCITED!
Thu 21 Dec 2023, 2:55 pmgreg_parker
The long story short:

A previously unknown / unmentioned employee of the TSBD saw Oswald getting changed after the assassination!

It is true! I read it document!

Okay okay. So further investigation uncovered that she actually worked in the Dal Tex building, not the TSDB as claimed for the informant  and that she denied ever saying anything about seeing anyone get changed, insisting it was a …
The Raleigh Call
Fri 29 Dec 2023, 4:59 amorangebicycle
I'm most of the way through Bart Kamp's useful and fascinating Prayer Man, up to and including the section on the Raleigh phone call of late 23 Nov 63. I know the call was 'debunked' by John Hurt's widow a few years back. It seemed like a slam-dunk at the time. But was it? Anthony Summers initially thought so, but was persuaded otherwise by Robert Blakey, whose own investigation confirmed to his …
Was Oswald ever confronted with the physical rifle?
Thu 14 Dec 2023, 9:59 pmCastroSimp
We know that the DPD had nothing tying Oswald to the rifle during his early interrogations, and that Oswald denied even owning a rifle. We know they paraded around the rifle in the DPD hallway for the press as well. But a thought occurred to me which is that I don't believe they actually confronted Oswald with the physical rifle. Is that accurate?

I'm wondering because I go back and forth on …

Alyea Film, 
Reporters(?), Baker, Truly, and Campbell are discussing having just seen Oswald 

"WE SAW HIM IN A SMALL STORAGE ROOM ON THE GROUND FLOOR. THEN WE NOTICED HE WAS GONE. "

MR CAMPBELL ADDED. "OF COURSE, MR OSWALD AND THE OTHERS WERE ON THEIR LUNCH HOUR BUT HE DID NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO LEAVE THE BUILDING AND WE HAVEN'T SEEN HIM SINCE." 

Plus behind Ochus is a warehouse worker …
hidell notice of classification
Thu 28 Dec 2023, 1:27 amgreg_parker
The Warren Report states that this is a copy of Oswald's own notice made by photographing the original to obtain a negative and erasing some information so that new signatures could be hand done.

One difference between them is that Oswald's card bears the signature with someone with the surname Schiffer and the Hidell card has the signature of someone named Hoffer.

Both German surnames. …

Little goodbye article. It has been good here! The work done here put any other place connected to this case to shame.

I am aiming for Dec 30 (my time) - a week from today. It will probably take me that long to figure out the best way to do it so that it remains open for reading.

I'll take this opportunity to wish one and all a great festive season and a full and happy new year.
