how does your compilation demonstrate that "while LEE's MO was in the department stores, HARVEY's was a nurse and continues to be a nurse (photo 1975)..."
and that..."LEE's MO disappears from the radar after her firend's comment above... there is no record of LEE's mother after NOLA 1960/61."
A bunch of undated photos proves nothing except a propensity toward wishful thinking. I mean... it might
be evidence for the former... if t
he department store photos were taken at around the same time as those in her nurses uniform... but until you provide dates, the photos themselves mean nothing. What your compilation definitely cannot do is masquerade as evidence for your latter contention. Moreover, implicit in your theory is that the woman who initiated inquiries with the State Dept about her son in Russia was not the same woman who continued with those inquiries after 1960/61 and that this impostor was telling people as early as 1962 that her son was an agent. Like I said in the other thread... whoever picked this impostor really blundered.
And speaking of the other thread, why the new one?
What your compilation does
demonstrate is that people who follow this theory have generally at some stage, trawled through every photo of Lee and Marguerite they could find -- and not once apparently
in all that trawling did any of them ever come across this photo of Marguerite and Marina.
Sorry. I don't buy it. This photo has been deliberately ignored in order to keep alive the totally illogical claim this this next photo (on the right) proves Marina was the taller of the two - making Marguerite under 5' 1" - even though according to the theory she was actually 5' 4".
And then along comes the passport information showing her as being 5' 21/2" in 1965. Hmm. From 5'4" to under 5' 1" back up to 5' 2 1/2. This woman was one of the Marvel Super Heroes - Elastic Lass!
The facts, David:
It is dishonest to claim that Marguerite was 5' 7" tall in 1945 based on one photo - especially when you misrepresent the "measuring stick" in this photo - Ekdahl - as being over 6 feet tall when that is not known with any certainty - and to compound that by ignoring Marguerite's heels.
Marguerite appears to have been no taller than 5' 4" in her entire life even when allowing Ekdahl to be 6' 1". That she wore heels and was relatively slim, may give the illusion of her being taller. But she wasn't. Then in her middle years, she got the middle aged spread thing happening. The way you guys carry on, you would think this is an unknown phenomena. But also look how chubby she was as a baby. Youth and activity can take that weight off and keep it off - until you reach a certain age. By her late 50s, she had also shrunk about 1 and a half inches - which science says will happen to all of us.
Marguerite age 2 and a half.
Faith is not evidence of anything except maybe what type of mind set is driving this. Deep down though, you know you're up a river without paddle. Jim has abandoned you, you abandon threads and start new ones, while other notables who support this theory like Michael Hogan have remained mute throughout all these discussions. I predict Mike will simply never mention "Harvey" again in the hope no one notices/remembers his past support for the theory and it's defenders. I further predict that (in the event he offers one at all), he will offer the excuse for staying out of these threads, that he will not discuss anything with me at all. Unfortunately for all its supporters, I don't forget. Really, all any of you have to do is admit you suspended disbelief to allow yourselves to flim-flammed by sleight of hand, misrepresentation of evidence, the power of suggestion, and a cast of supporting characters masquerading as witnesses all to eager to "help". Audience participation at the magic show.
The show's over, David. But I hope you enjoyed the ride .
