I concur.

And I cannot believe the book has so many positive reviews.

But a lot of people buy into James Files and Judyth Baker too.

Thank you, Stan.

Your comment was cruel and fair.

Sickening, isn't it?

Its a fair review Greg. With hindsight, you could have plugged some of the forum topics which show the gymnastics that were needed to promote the two Oswald/Marguerite phenomena.

Yeah, I thought about it Steely but didn't want it assumed I was there just plugging this place, or my own book. I just wanted to bring some balance to it. The effusive (and ignorant) praise in so many of those reviews makes me wonder if the book doesn't come with a tab of LSD.

There's a good chance that, like the Super Busy Loyer, they have yet to read the frigging thing. But it sounds such a neat idea.

Good point Hasan. It will be worth keeping an eye on Greg's review, to see who it flushes out.

I liked your review, Greg. I haven't read the whole book and probably won't because I am just far too busy fucking around on here so I appreciate the spoilers.I've read about 100 pages and I found it difficult to deal with Armstrongs constant reiterations about the 2 MO's and H & L. Some of his descriptors were downright childish and he probably goes out of his way to bear the distinctions far too often because he is isn't confident we are going to buy the story. Anyways I found that annoying. His research efforts are impressive though but he is a shithouse writer.

I agree with you, Stan, and Avinash, Greg. I think there will be a few things in my essay on Larry Crafard which will piss off the H and L cult; which of course, is a great thing.

And how is the essay coming along, Hasan?

Any ETA?

Just wondering.

Rather slowly, Terry. I was hoping to have it finished by the end of September, but that obviously didn't work out. I estimate that I've still got about 10 pages to go. I'm currently up to my discussion of the likelihood that it was Crafard who was living at 1026 North Beckley. I imagine Jim Di will be sending me some more material to put up at CTKA over the coming few days, so that will probably put me off finishing the essay by the end of November.

Well it probably won't be the busy loyer Alan, because she's still way too busy trying to finish reading Armstrong's book for the first time.

Hasan,

That's great! Sort of like an early Christmas present.

Hasan,

Even that very busy loyer should know that many of the "reviews" put up are from people who never even cracked the cover much less read even a part of the manuscript.

I'm sure she could write something very gushing about the book... even if not very convincingly.

Well, the good news is that I have no work next week, so I will be spending as much time as I can to get the essay done. My boss said that since next Tuesday is a public holiday, she would close the museum where I work for Monday and Wednesday too. I knew there was a reason why I loved the Melbourne cup! Very Happy

This could be a reason it's taken so long to read the book. Some people can only learn one thing at a time, so they must prioritize. The process can take years and years and years.
