  1. Could you please send me your email? I have a question. Best, DSL (dlifton@earthlink.net)
  2. 1. Yes, Jim D., it was in fact "really a different book". FWIW: I never heard of someone writing "a different book" (your own description) and then trying to pass it off as a "revision" of the original book that he wrote. If one wants to write "another" book (i.e., a separate book), one publishes it as a separate title, or, alternatively, if one retains the original title, then calls it "Volume II." 2. Regarding your second paragraph, QUOTE ON: "If it was me I probably would have named it "Though the Heave's Fall"..(sic) .etc. DSL Response: Frankly, I wasn't sure what you wer
  3. To Jim D.: Your last sentence could use some improvement: As written, it states: "I have to answer the guy who thinks I do not think I write my own articles." (italics added). This is poorly stated. What the heck are you saying: "Who thinks I do not think"...?? Is that a Freudian slip? Or simply the result of syntactical confusion. Suggested improvement: You wrote: "I have to answer the guy (apparently me, DSL) who thinks I do not write my own articles." My Response: That's correct. It was well known (years ago) that submissions would be made to your newsletter, and t
  4. Two comments: "cant" is not the word you seek; correct spelling: "can't"; or, better yet: "can not". As to "verisimilitude, here's the definition, from the Internet: What does verisimilitude mean? From its roots, verisimilitude means basically "similarity to the truth". Most fiction writers and filmmakers aim at some kind of verisimilitude to give their stories an air of reality. END OF DICTIONARY DEFINITION. Here's my attempt to use the word in a sentence: "By placing three shells near the sixth floor window, stashing a
  5. Please send me your email address. Put "JFK" in the subject line. DSL (dlifton@gmail.com)
  6. Revised and updated, 1/16/21, 4:15 AM PST "After the fact, there is no truth. There is only what the jury decides." Yes, that is exactly what Garrison said to me --in the late 1960s --when I was meeting with him (and debating with him), and when the subject was Kerry Thornley, a Marine who knew Oswald and who was a subject of interest (to Garrison). Why was Garrison interested in Thornley? Because, in the year before the assassination (around late 1962), Thornley had completed the manuscript for a novel called The Idle Warriors -- inspired by his service in the Marines-- and
  7. FWIW: Pat Lambert and I had a multi-hour in-person interview with (retired) Richard Rogge, taped with permission, at his home in Southern California (which I now refer to as "SoCal"). Rogge was a firm believer in the LHO-did-it alone school of thought. In other words, he completely bought --as valid--the Dallas Police Department view of the case. The one particular that I recall: that in the hours following the assassination, Rogge was personally flown to Washington (as I recall) on LBJ's jet. (DSL, 12/28/20 -1:45 AM PST)
  8. Quoting from your writing: QUOTE ON: So, to sum up, there was no need to alter the body if the original plan called for framing multiple shooters from multiple directions. This would have accorded nicely with the real eye and earwitnesses who did indeed see and hear multiple shooters! UNQUOTE DSL RESPONSE: Of couse, you are free to postulate anything you wish; but the problem is that your hypothesis does not comport with the existing record. From the opening minutes on the Dallas police radio, through the initial wire service reports, the emerging story was that JFK was shot by a si
  9. What I wrote -- i.e., my answers --were precise and accurate. Its your inferences and peculations that don't follow (or are unwarranted). But I cannot fully address your (additional) questions at this juncture, or comment further on your speculations about my beliefs and conclusions. For that, you'll have to read the book. FWIW: I never agreed with Doug Horne's thesis that Humes altered the body, and told him so at the time. In writing. Not only did I disagree with him on this point -- I thought that conclusion was seriously incorrect, and did a major injustice to Commander Humes, the a

  11. Joe, you write, regarding the exit of the Dallas coffin from Parkland: "I suspect the coffin was empty, the reason for the nearly violent confrontation in the [hospital] hallway. . " and your commentary shows that your reconstruction of events is decidedly different from mine. 1. The coffin was not "empty" when it left Parkland. There was no opportunity --at Parkland--to covertly remove the body from the Dallas coffin, after the nurses washed the body, and placed it in the coffin, after which Aubrey Rike --as he told me in a very emotional filmed interview -- "closed the lid." I fail t
  12. Joe, You spell out your objections (and in doing so) reveal the way you perceive the problem: Repeating your objections: Why would the plotters have wanted a Dallas autopsy, since it would have been performed by Dr. Earl Rose [?] who did the exemplary autopsies on Tippit and Oswald? Dr. Rose could not be controlled. He would have recorded evidence of wounds caused by shots from different directions. My response to your assertions: “Why would the plotters have wanted a Dallas autopsy?” RESPONSE: Plotters would want a Dallas autopsy —and especi
