James Rothstein's phone number in St. Martin, Minn.is 320-548-3647. I told him about you so he will recognize your name when you call but you might mention my name as reference. -- Doug

Thanks Doug, your introduction to Rothstein is really much appreciated. I hope to talk to him again in a week or so after he has had a chance to talk further with his brother about the Independence.
I'm excited about the new book perhaps more than anything else I have done because its a piece of history that is really important - not only for fully appreciating JFK but for understanding the degree to which competing agendas can obscure events almost in real time.
And of course its also a cautionary tale in regard to starting what are defined as limited, focused small projects and having them grow into something far larger and more dangerous.
April 17 is the 59th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs. Why not submit an article to the Washington Post weaving the theme you wrote just above along with something like the untold story of the Essex and the Independence and cite your forthcoming book as evidence of your authority to write about the topic?
