  1. Mark, thanks for the post, very well put. You are right about the times. It was alot different back then. Blacks could not do much, without being severely punished for their actions. But again, not much has changed, as there are still racist people running around doing, and acting the same as the early 60's. Boogie, spear chucker, ni--er, darkie, blackie, mau-mau, coon, jigga-boo, you name it, they have all been used. Back then I'm sure quite a few people, wheather Kennedy or any other person, in this country had probably used one or all of those terms at one time or another. [admitting it or
  2. Not to get really off the subject, but near me in the next town, they have a great used bood store. They take trade ins, and allow you so much for hardbacks, softs, etc.... on trade in on their books in stock, and they have alot of very out of date, unique books. I have gone in and found many out of print books concerning jfk, the 22nd, and related books, for next to nothing. [plus they allow you so much for the ones you bring in-they are very cheap!]So the next time you pass one, back up, and check it out. You might be suprised!-FWIW-smitty
  3. Lee, FWIW............from McDonalds book, "Who was the man in the picture? It was at this point McDonald gave his mystery man a name. He called him Saul. To this day he cant remember why, unless it was the Bible. "And Saul caused Uriah, the Hittite, to be placed in the forefront of the battle......" Just thought I would pass it on. Not that it matters. Smitty
  4. Thanks for the post Steve. No, Ive never heard of any connection between the two, and it surprized me. After reading the posted article [which was very good] it struck me that if true, wouldnt LHO had to definately had to have a drivers license? No? I know it was the early 60's, but I would think that you would have had to have had one, which meant he probably took a drivers test [if it truly was him]. If a license wasnt needed, I dont know why in the world he would have had a 62' Falcon in his name. If it wasnt truly LHO, then it was a very elaborate tie in for him or Vallee to be a patsy in
  5. Curious, isn't it? He may have been in the Dallas Morning News offices at 12:30, but that doesn't mean he couldn't have hustled a few blocks afterwards. 2. Jack Ruby - He certainly counts as an 'imposter' in my mind later on at a minimum, posing as a newsman during Oswald's news conference. Still keep wondering if Jim Dolan doesn't figure in here someplace. His buddy Eugene does for sure. - lee Actually Lee, just came across and am trying to remember where, those at the Dallas Morning News on close questioning said there was a period of about 30 minutes just about time of 'action
  6. Terry, I cant believe he is still kicking, and wanting to continue in politics! I heard him in a blurb today on NPR and he still wants to run again. What troubles me is what he brought out about the Patriots and stealing plays. He was all over that, and said it was a cover-up, and wanted to push for a thourough investigation of the matter! What a joke. He has to be the biggest hipocrite in the world. Believe me when I say this, I dont wish cancer on anyone, but I wish he would finally get out of politics, one way or another, and shut up, once and for all. I think we are all sick of hearing fro

  8. Smitty, Boots on the gound in Maple Shade NJ, a most archypical American town if there ever was one. If you walk the railroad tracks from Dudley Grange park in my old East Camden neighborhood you come to Maple Shade two towns down. That's as far as I ever got. You be careful now Smitty, you know these small town cops, and they already have a bead on you poking around asking questions. I guess if you insist on taking this research further we should find out more about the two girls who were with MLK that day and whether they ever gave their side of the story. I'd also like to know who M
  9. To all interested, I talked to anoter Maple Shade regular today who is also a Sgt. on the M/S PD, and asked him about Marys location. It turns out that I was correct the first time. I askled him if he was sure, and he grinned, and gave me a sly look. He said yes, my father is the past president of the Maple Shade Historical society! Lol! So Marys Cafe is still there and in her present glory, as Bill said. If you take Rt. 73 west towards Phila., you will go through the beginning of M/S and come to the off ramp for "Maple Shade/ Morrestown". It is just a single lane off ramp up an incline on the
  10. All, got a chance today to talk to a lifelong local. He gave me directions and since I had to take a test drive, I took the time to take a look. I beleive I found it, but not positive. The building looks to be period, and has been refinished outside but is very dilapidated, and is boarded up. I am going back down again tomorrow to look again, as a local lifelong resident who happens to be a captain for the Maple Shade PD, told me later on today it is down further than where I was. So Im going to do some more looking. Your description Bill sounds right, but this building is on the northeast cor
  11. All, I too was a long time believer that the RFK assassination was the one to work on and solve, to get to the final end to the JFK issue, as Peter stated. It only makes sense that there is much less involved compared to the JFK issue, and to finally solve that would eventually lead to finally putting to rest the other. A great read on these subjects was done in "Assassinations" by James DiEugenio and Linda Pease. A very good book on all of the 60's conspiracys. I think the problem is, that its not so much that people arent looking to solve the RFK issue, its that they run into the same "power
  12. Bill, Thanks for the reply. Ill see what i can find out. Im not that familiar with the area yet, but im getting there. lol. Im sure its east of the 295 and 73 intersection. Ill ask some of the old timers and find out where main/camden is and take a long lunch and find it. Your idea of some type of marker is a great idea. The only problem up there is, property is at a premium, and if its not a parking lot, its a mini-mall. The whole area up around where i am off of Collins road looks like it was dropped out of the sky and is all spotlessly brand new, except for some of the older existing buildi
  13. Bill, being a local Jersey guy, {as you know}, I truly appreciate your post here concerning Dr. King and his episode here in NJ. Suprisingly, I have been working at a new job here right in Maple Shade right on Rt. 73 for the last 4 months! [im sure it is only a stones throw from where Im at-2 blocks off Rt. 295] I will be looking this place up as soon as I can. Hopefully I can get some pics, and maybe post them here for others to see. With his anniversary of his death this past week, it is a timely post to his struggle with civil rights. The History channel had a very good special on the other
  14. Fwiw, from what I can make of this is, that the Willis photo shows only one man on the top step, not two. [sorry Bill], two men do not line up exactly like that without there being very obvious differences seen, such as the thickness of bodies, etc... ,and the "RSM" on the lower step. Now as far as the position of the limo, the other "young man" would have had to be getting to the steps pretty quickly to be there by the time the limo got to the position he is seen there with the other two. Can you say running? And be there looking comfortable? As far as the man being "BDM", I dont think it is,
  15. All, personally, I wish Spector would finally drop dead. Being a NJ resident, we hear of his antics constantly, and I personally am sick of this man. Entering into this football problem was the last straw. I cant believe he would actually sit there and cry about a coverup, after what that lowlife did with the JFK single bullet theory coverup!! *%@#$@*&@%$@#% What a hypocrite!! Has he lost his mind? Or is he just that forgetfully stupid? At his age, he has no business even being in office, as he probably is suffering from dymensia at this point. The only coverup he should be involved with a
