Topics I've Started

Rodolfo Fierro and the Z Film

29 May 2016 - 07:18 AM

Read an interesting story about Rodolfo Fierro, a top henchman of Pancho Villa. (Fierro was known as El Carnicero, or The Butcher.) He sat across from a man who argued that a man shot from the front will fall backward. Fierro argued that the man would fall forward. To settle the argument, Fierro shot the man and watched him fall forward.

Crime of the century

Heard CNN's Don Lemon tonight refer to the Simpson-Goldman murders as "what some call the crime of the century."

I knew that the JFK assassination was not what it was cracked up to be.

JFK's clothing and the autopsy

02 August 2015 - 10:52 PM

Cliff Varnell has mentioned in another thread that JFK's clothes were not made available for the autopsy. As I recall, SS agent Greer had JFK's clothes and gave them agent Rybka that night to take to the White House and store them in a locker instead of taking them to the morgue.


Was the SS ever asked, or did the SS ever offer an explanation, why this was done?


Is this clear evidence of a cover-up, or could both Greer and Rybka plausibly argue (not that they ever did) that they simply weren't aware of the importance of clothing for an autopsy? (Bearing in mind that in 1963 there were no CSI shows on TV every night.)

Oswald going to work

18 July 2015 - 02:39 AM

I received a question via email that I can't readily answer, so I'll pose the question here. Oswald rode to and from his job at the TSBD with Wesley Frazier on Fridays and Mondays, to spend weekends in Irving. How did he get to work on the other days of the week?
