  1. One thing that I recently thought of if, it was applicable to the films showing Prayerman is more or less a substitution of the seemingly? impossible task of computer enhancement of said footage. I hope someone well versed in the field of video technology reads this, before the idea is summarily dismissed by non-experts. Colorization....I know enough about the technology to realize cinematographers will colorize B&W films, using actual color photos of a certain area or event. Does anyone else think this is a applicable area. If so or even if not, I would be curious to see what people thi
  2. Persons interested in this thread may also want to take a look at CE 167, it is a photo prior to the beginning of Lee Oswald's funeral. A Navy officer can be seen quite clearly, I even posted it on my facebook page... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1429796353902242&set=pb.100006156731382.-2207520000.1443031575.&type=3&theater I have also posted a genealogy link to Thomas Hilmon Bookout http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=cmd&id=I1235 At first I was thinking about James Bookhout, the FBI agent....but as you can see the spellings indicate tw
  3. July 21, 1998 Amarillo Globe Longtime Dallas police reporter dies The Associated Press DALLAS (AP) - Johnny Rutledge, a longtime police reporter for The Dallas Morning News whose white Stetson often caused others to mistake him for a lawman himself, died Sunday. He was 74 and had battled emphysema and throat cancer for five years, The News reported. Rutledge covered Jack Ruby's killing of Lee Harvey Oswald, the man suspected of assassinating President Kennedy, in 1963. He was called to testify as a prosecution witness at Ruby's trial, said his son, Daniel M. Rutledge of Bryan, because
  4. Nice to see you hereabouts......After all the time in the old days we discussed John Hurt, I eventually started buying up old books on cryptology, as well as James Bamford's works. While this isn't addressing the topic of this thread. I believe one of the dynamics of the assassination, has to do with a generation gap, ie The Greatest Generation vs The Best & The Brightest. The former, I believe felt JFK didn't pass their litmus test for what constituted leadership. I might add thank God, he didn't because if he had listened to the JCOS and their ilk, the world, as we know it, Cuban Missile
  5. Additionally Jack died soon after his book was published; I consider that a great loss, as well.
  6. You could say this is a addendum of sorts to the whole issue of Finland, as some of us remember LBJ as VP went on a Northern Countries diplomatic goodwill mission in September of 1963, where, he was in Finland, players [at one time] Ambassador to Finland Carl Rowan, his press attache Edward J. Savage, others John D. Hickerson and Finnish Amb. to the United States Richard Seppala. Of all dates...... September 11, 1963 LBJ's driver while he was in Finland Klaus Bertil Granblom [of Finland] died in an automobile accident. The newspaper coverage of that day Fort-Worth Star Telegram 9-11-63
  7. What if Oswald's missing third letter was the one that Shanklin told Hosty to burn after the assassination? Hmmmm....
  8. Jim, reading what you wrote reminded me of what Jack Ruby said when the Warren Commissioner's visited his jail cell before he died. Not sure if it is verbatim, but it was something along thelines of.....I am as innocent as all of you gathered here. Sarcasm?

  10. Some time after the events in Dallas, Senator Thomas Dodd was investigated and, I believe even censured by his fellow Senator's. There was a book written about this and although the name escapes me, the Saturday Evening Post and Jack Anderson gave quite a bit of attention to this. In the Saturday Evening Post series of articles that were written, which, I believe was actually excerpts from the then forthcoming book, it was alleged that Dodd had a former FBI agent on his staff and that Dodd had connections to the West German government, i.e. Julius Klein and a Dr. Carstens. Although this po
  11. One thing I felt fairly certain about after viewing the aforementioned JFK program, was that there was more than one railroad worker, and/or man with hardhat that was regarded bythe police as a suspect. Then awhile later after posting on this thread, I stumbled onto a passage from "No More Silence," containing an interview with Union Terminal Railroad employee Clemon Earl Johnson [pps. 79-83]. Since I can't write up the entire section, I will say....He mentions himself, S.M. Holland, Dodd, Sam Cox, Dudley Neath, two boys named Potter, Simmons, "Doc" Halbert and "others." The key portion of
  12. Tom, you seem to have a premise for your idea. See Below San Diego Union-Tribune, The (CA) - November 16, 1995 Deceased Name: CAPT. DAVID A. SOOY Pioneering Navy flier, 92 Capt. David Aubrey Sooy , a pioneering Navy aviator who developed land for shopping centers and custom homes after a 30-year military career, died on his 92nd birthday Nov. 5 at Scripps Memorial Hospital-Encinitas. Capt. Sooy , who died of natural causes, was credited with making the first night landing on the carrier Saratoga in 1931. He also was among Navy aviators whose trick maneuvers in public performances p
  13. The threat Jim Di Eugenio mentioned did not go un-noticed here on the Forum, I updated it, for those who forgot about it.
  14. For Jim DiEugenio's new thread. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/07/04/353992/-Bizarre-1979-plot-to-Assassinate-President-Jimmy-Carter#
