  1. Jada Conforto and Jack Ruby

    Yes. Janet married Joseph F Conforto, Jr. Angelo and Jerome were his brothers.
  2. JDF:Flashpoint the movie

    You are so right about the cynicism it leaves you with. I'm in Louisiana. Often, we get one of those rain storms where you barely see the road. Looking through the wipers, many times over the years I remembered the scene from the movie where the vehicle was lost.
  3. Paul, I completely agree with you here. Until I'm proven wrong, I am of the opinion that the man in Mexico was indeed Lee Harvey Oswald and that he was anxious to get into Cuba—not Russia. If you concur, I'm curious as to your thoughts on the other location where Oswald was reported to be around this time. Do you believe the testimony of the other Sylvia—Silvia Odio? Regards, HL

    Paul, I now suspect you of wiretapping my home. I've spoke often of Walker these last few weeks and recently spent a day in the state archives reviewing microfilm of a Shreveport newspaper heavily controlled by Walker. I hadn't considered tape and film in regards to Walker, but your hint at "unique holdings" has piqued my interest. Thanks for the inspiration! Regards, HL
  5. On September 3rd, 1935, US Senator Huey Pierce Long of Louisiana addressed the senate and told them of a plot by the military industrial complex to assassinate him. On September 8, Huey was in the State Capitol in Baton Rouge for a special session of the Louisiana legislature, pushing through a number of bills including a measure to gerrymander opponent Judge Benjamin Pavy out of his job. According to the generally accepted version of events, Pavy’s son-in-law, Dr. Carl Weiss, approached Huey in a corridor and shot him at close range in the abdomen. Huey’s bodyguards immediately opened fired on Weiss as Huey ran to safety. Weiss was killed instantly, and Huey was rushed to a nearby hospital, where emergency surgery failed to stop internal bleeding. Long died 3 days later. After the shooting, the biggest public controversy was whether Weiss was part of an assassination plot with Long's enemies, not whether he actually shot the senator, but almost a century later, some still insist that Weiss never fired a shot. Anyone else interested in this case? http://time.com/4020709/huey-long-anniversary/
  6. JDF:Flashpoint the movie

    Michael, Yes, this is one of my favorites. In fact, for years I'd invite friends to watch as ruse to peek there interest in the assassination. It worked every time.
  7. JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY

    I recently finished reading a book on this subject, written by a young lady who grew up with JBS leaders as parents in the '60s. Fascinating read. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008ED6ATA

I am also a historian specializing in Louisiana history and a long-time assassination researcher. I have personally interviewed key figures related to the assassinations of Louisiana Senator Huey P. Long, as well as that of President John F. Kennedy.
