  1. Well, that's rich coming from CIA officials!
  2. Jim, that presentation was so good I've watched it four times already. What struck me was that YouTube piece of Nasser's speech on his dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood. For a Middle East leader delivering that speech with such humour....very much in JFK style too. Yeah, what a mess in Middle East we have today!
  3. Pamela, Just in case you missed this.....I thought it was a very profound eulogy from Fintan O'Toole https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/fintan-o-toole-biden-is-a-kennedy-era-figure-come-back-to-heal-a-wound-that-never-closed-1.4404521?mode=amp&mode=sample&auth-failed=1&pw-origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.irishtimes.com%2Fopinion%2Ffintan-o-toole-biden-is-a-kennedy-era-figure-come-back-to-heal-a-wound-that-never-closed-1.4404521
  4. Certainly does. Thanks for your time. I have had SWHT (2010) on order for a while, so looking forward to that, + future instalments of TP. Great work Larry!
  5. I love this Forum! It certainly delivers Education! Many thanks Rob & Jim for this. 'Murder Most Foul' is in the post.
  6. Fintan O'Toole is spot on with what he says of Dylan's 'Rough & Rowdy Ways' + 'Murder Most Foul'. Great article! Cheers Robert.
  7. Larry, My copy of SWHT was obtained at Lancer in 2003 in binder form with accompanying cd. (signed by the author) 😉 I have also read Nexus. Q1. Am I missing info in my copy of SWHT from the 2010 update? Q2. Will Tipping Point contain info not appearing in SWHT & Nexus? (Part1.html has kept me quiet for a few hours & is very detailed) Q3. Will the full text of Tipping Point appear in MF.org?
  8. A Covid-19 vaccine being developed by Pfizer and Germany’s BioNTech has been found to be more than 90 per cent effective, in a major breakthrough that could make the shot available for use by the end of the year if drug authorities give it the green light. The finding was the result of the first independent analysis of any Covid-19 vaccine in phase 3 trials — the final stage before commercial licensing. The study found that 94 participants who received the two-dose vaccine were protected against the disease 28 days after their first inoculation.
  9. Joe, I think this was a myth. JFK's visit to Miami began with his arrival at Miami airport & he was to then fly by helicopter to his next appointment at Bal Harbour, only by vehicle if weather was inclement, which it wasn't. He arrived at Miami airport around 17:00. There was a very short distance drive by car later. No motorcade was called off. Unlike Milteer's warning, the threat was a bomb.
  10. In fact Greene did not meet Lansdale until after completing much of the novel. According to Greene, the inspiration for the character of Pyle was Leo Hochstetter,
  11. Not quite, but close. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, responding to the question "Do you think Oswald did it?": "If I told you what I really know, it would be very dangerous to this country. Our whole political system could be disrupted."
  12. Two official versions of "Show Them The Way": an acoustic one and a full recording featuring Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) on guitar and Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) on drums. This song was written by Stevie Nicks in St. Charles, Illinois, in 2008. She told Rolling Stone, "...One night I went to bed and I had this dream. I dream a lot, but I almost never remember the dreams. I'll wake up and I'll go, 'I remember a train with some people smiling and waving at me that went by really fast,' and that's it. This dream was so really real that there was a little bit of me, for a minute, when I
  13. Nice one guys! Added to my Spotify library.
