Dawn, normally I would agree with you, but in the case of the clothing evidence

it's different. LNers always trip themselves up, and it's a gas to watch.

For instance, in order begin to make his case, Craig Lamson

must claim that JFK's shirt tail was out, at least partially.

Think about this a sec.

According to David Powers, JFK changed his shirt on the flight from Fort Worth

to Dallas.

According to Craig's theory, JFK had to leave his shirt tail partially out even though

doing so might ruin the lines of his slim-cut European dress jacket.

The chances of that ever happening were nil.

JFK didn't appear in public with his shirt tail out.

And yet Gary Mack et al assume that he did.

Any theory that rests on such a scenario is a monument to the power of

intellectual dishonesty.

It's "cognitive impairment" -- as Charles so rightly puts it.

This is for you, Charles Drago! You called it! Check out our man Craig Lamson

re the Altgens photo on Houston St.

His comments in red, mine follow:

Thats your OPINION Cliff. The photo is inconclusive. My opinion is

that the fold and bunch hides the jacket and shirt collar.

That's the left side of JFK's head visible in Altgens, Craig.

It's your opinion that the "fold and bunch" hides the jacket and shirt collar on

the left side of JFK's head in Altgens?

And haven't you also claimed that the "fold and bunch" hides the jacket and shirt

collar on the right side of his head in Betzner, taken about 30 seconds after

Altgens?

And yet you were raving about the visible shirt collar in Croft?

I think we have the operative definition of cognitive impairment.
