  1. I would have thought you might have consulted experts with regard to the claim that Altgens #6 shows a through-and-through bullet hole. I would have thought this since all your efforts have focused on the question as to whether there was a through-and-through bullet hole in the windshield. Let's say that the trail Martin and others are pursuing turns out to be truly correct. The socalled "spiral nebula" turns out to be some swirls in the fabric of something held by Lady #8. Would that impact your confidence in a through-and-through hole in the windshield? I'm no photo expert. But I don't

  3. Hi Doug, Yes, I am aware of the name of that researcher as well. You can only surmise? Well, no, you could have checked it out.<g> But in this case, the info has been available for some time ... from Vince Palamara and Greer's 1985 obituary, at least. Wife Ethel passed away in 1969; second wife is Mary, who gave the papers to the researcher. How was it Prencipe said he was still in touch with Greer until after, at least, 1969? Greer retired in '66. Was basically off my computer yesterday, that's true for the most part today as well ... I see several posts I need to respond to, especia
  4. Can you see it too Josiah? Todd, thank you for your sharp eye and your compliment. Thank god there are people out there whom realize it. Martin Maybe this will help, Martin. It's an enlargement from the original Altgens #6 negative that was done in 1967. It's about as clear as anything I've seen and matches what Pamela got from an Archives copy. The light area containing the socalled "spiral nebula" has a dark area very near it. This would be what you would get with the dark green surrounding the light area that Barb thought might be a "purse" being held by Lady #8. The white ar

  6. Hi Doug, I thank you for sending me the audio CD of your first interview with Mr. Prencipe. I have listened to it twice. I do believe whenever Mr. Prencipe's story can be told in his own words it is best, as it makes it quite clear what he says happened ... and when ... and where. A little chronology ... March 2000: Pamela McElwain-Brown conducted a phone interview with Prencipe; I do not have the exact date, nor have I heard that interview. April 16, 2000: You interviewed Prencipe by phone, and that is the interview you recently sent me. At the time of your interview, Prencipe spoke wel
  7. FWIW, not if the sniper was crouched or prone What difference would that make if the person was in White's line of sight behind the banister? If prone, the person could be even more likely to be spotted, since his body would be extended westward. Ron: I apologize. I have spent a lot of time in the south knoll area and know that it was a great spot to be concealed but I do not know who Officer White (what is his first name) is and where he exactly was allegedly standing.

  8. Tosh, I was not referring to railroad workers, who were on the east side of the underpass and certainly could not have seen a south knoll shooter behind the winged east wedge. I was referring to police officer White. I would have to go look to be sure, but I believe from memory that it's a pretty wide underpass and that a person standing where White was on the west side of the underpass over Elm could see someone behind the east winged banister at the south end. FWIW, not if the sniper was crouched or prone and/or if there was someone standing between the sniper and any viewers, i.e., so

  11. Bernice; So that people are not confused where Ferguson stated he drove the limo to Dearborn, Michigan on December 20, 1963 and then on to Cincinnati on December 24, 1963 is in the HSCA Chronology of the Limo. Do you have that? There are many points here. Note: " Examination of the windshield disclosed no perforation, but substantial cracks radiating a couple of inches from the center of the windshield at a point directly beneath the mirror." Nobody has described damage there. Also note that the windshield was allegedly placed under lock and key on November 25, 1963. This part of the
  12. Doug, the *windshield* itself raised the issue of the possibility of a through and through hole possibly being there. The windshield was damaged in a shooting ... it had a stellate cracking pattern. It would have been ridiculous, not to mention incompetent, to *not* look for, and report, whether or not there was a perforation there. On Taylor, I don't really have anything to add aside from what we included in our article. What happened and why was covered thoroughly there, imo. The rest in this post seems to be mostly a jumble of speculation mixed with a few claims and hints of more info
  13. Yes, I am aware of no activity on the 25th .... it was funeral day and declared a National Day of Mourning. The conflict is between the limo being stripped down to bare metal in Dearborn, MI on the 25th (Ford was operating that day?) and Arlington Glass and Ferguson being at the WHG and replacing the windshield in that limo on the 26th. I do see that as a conflict. I am aware of rumors of a bullet hole in the car. I know Frazier etal searched for bullet holes when they examined the car, and, as I recall, Canning wanted the trunk and behind the seat area searched for possible bullet holes. Do
  14. Hi Doug, The whole Ferguson/Whitaker thing sounds bizarre. Ferguson clearly had the date of the windshield replacement by Arlington Glass wrong. But what of the dates being in conflict as regard Whitaker who said the limo was stripped down to bare metal in Dearborn on the 25th? How can that be credible? By "Vaughan's assertion" I reckon you mean Todd and not Ferguson.<g> I don't have enough information to be able to say much about that, other than that if, as Todd said, and there is certainly no reason to doubt Todd, that Martin claimed zero damage at all to the windshield, then Martin
  15. Bernice: I agree about Tosh I just do not want to lose focus on the thread I have going. That is why I opened a new thread to begin with. Plumlee is extremely important! I hope he will watch the you-tube presentation and see what a sniper would have viewed from the south side of the underpass with my video. I do want to get the questions I addressed in my long posting and I believe the dialog and responses will be important. Take care, Doug
  16. Michael: See Doug Horne Volume 5 p.1439 the section entitled "The Bullet Hole in the Windshield is Proof of A Shot Fired From The Front" Doug Weldon
  17. Is this the Cancellare photo of the South Knoll you're referring to, Tosh? YES... However, in order not to high jack this thread and offend some... I will not respond further. I see things different than some in reference to the windshield and the crack/hole: In my view I look at things a little different than some, because I was there. Information only becomes intelligence, after its been deciphered: All information is important regardless of the source or how it is obtained.... sorry my information does not fit in this exchange on this thread. However, I believe it is important to the
  18. David: Again, this is so odd. I actually spoke with workers in Ohio who replaced the leather and Whitaker was clear that the vehicle was stripped to metal on November 25, 1963. It is literallly like a shell game. Doug Not to take away from anyone... BUT what about the "alleged" south knoll shooter? The Windshield hole or crack is a very interesting topic... so is the background leading up to the "alleged hole in the windshield. Sometime ago I posted an overhead picture of Delay Plaza and drew a "line of shot" from the south side of the underpass and parking lot. Perhaps someone wo

  21. Hi Doug, I don't find it at all odd that "no perforation" would specifically be noted. The windshield was being examined because it had been in a shooting. It was visibly damaged with a smear, radiating cracks, etc. Along with noting the location, size, surfaces involved, etc, whether or not there was a perforation in the middle of those cracks would be an obvious question to answer .... an obvious finding to note ... either way. It's just one more finding being noted, as was Frazier noting that no bullet holes or additional frags were found in the limousine other than the 3 lead frags he had

  24. Doug, No problem responding at all. However, I tend to think in smaller chunks so I'm going to have to take things one or two lumps at at time. Also, as you know, Barb, Josiah and I studied different areas of the issue so even though I've reviewed everything I'm going to leave some topics to their comments. So, to kick it off! I believe Charles Taylor saw the Dallas windshield. Which would mean that up until 12:00 pm of the 22nd the Dallas windshield was still in the limousine. I believe that his original report establishes that, at the least, he was not part of a conspiracy at the Secret
  25. Jerry and Barb: I need to emphasize one further point in regards to F. Vauhn Ferguson and his memorandum when he wrote "Examination of the windshield disclosed no perforation, but substantial cracks radiating at a point DIRECTLY (emphasis added) beneath the mirror." Please note in my prior post that the word "between" should be "beneath." Don’t' you find it unusual that he did exactly what the FBI did, that he specifically described the negative, something that was not there. when he wrote "Examination of the windshield disclosed no perforation." Why would he specifically point out somet
