Hi there! Thanks for having me. I'm from Denmark and have been interested (on/off) in the JFKA since about the time of the 25th anniversary. In the old days, I collected way over 100 books and subscribed to various newsletters (particularly enjoyed Paul Hoch's) but ultimately ended up in the LN camp. It's unlikely that I'll ever become more than a low-frequency contributor to this forum, but some topics (e.g. related to the photographic evidence) have always been of particular interest to me.

I'm a computer programmer (but not one of the rich ones). I enjoy collecting old American comic books, not least of the horror variety, and to follow chess events online.

I’m the host of a podcast called Out Of The Blank where I talk about topics ranging all over to anything I can think of. Talking with experts of that subject and learning through conversation and the reason it’s been able to get high profile guests is because it’s not a interview it’s a free flow thought show.

 

here are some links

I was born soon after the JFKA. In the 70s, I would always see TV specials on and around my birthday and that sparked my interest. I have enjoyed reading many of the books penned by authors on this forum. I am honored to be amongst them and read additional insight and information in regards to the JFKA.

I’m from the UK and was born 10 years after the JFKA. 

My first exposure to the JFKA was when my head teacher raised it in school assembly on the 25th anniversary. He spoke of what could’ve been and what might have flashed through JFK’s mind in the final seconds of his life. That stuck with me.

Fast forward 29 years, when those documents were released in 2017 I started going through them and found myself getting deeper into it and asking myself “why isn’t this more transparent if there’s nothing untoward to it?” 

I’ve spent many hours as a guest on this site, after my soccer team it’s my go to site, and I can’t speak highly enough of research, knowledge and opinions that is shared here. 
 

Last JFK book I got was Larry Hancock’s Tipping Point, thanks to this site.

Hello! My name is Sean Manion, I'm an organizer and activist based in Massachusetts. Since my college days, I've been interested in topics like the Cold War, covert action, and the "dirty tricks" department of the National Security State. I got into the JFK assassination a few years ago, as I began to recognize common features between the covert activity surrounding imperialist coups d'etat of the Post-WW2 era, and those which orbit the Kennedy assassination.

My name is David Cooper. I have been interested in the assassination of JFK since 11/22/63. My mother was a professor of political science and conversations about current events occupied every dinner conversation. We both watched Jack Ruby shoot Lee Oswald on live television. I remember when she work me up very early one morning in 1968 to tell me RKF was shot in California. My interest in the JFKA was rekindled when I was in college in 1975 and I heard a presentation by Mark Lane. It was the first time I saw the Zapruder film. Since then, like many of you, I have made a point to study details about what actually happened and its growing ramifications on our lives ever since. I am a historian. I have a business restoring pre-WWII and early post-war European cars. My restoration work not only requires me to research the methods, materials, context, milieu and construction of early 20th century technology, but also has led me to unexpected discoveries about the provenance and history of the owners of these special automobiles. For example, a remarkable women owner of one of the cars was deeply involved with British and American intelligence history before, during and after WWII. I find myself drawn to the dusty corners of events, and to dig out connections between say, for example, Operation Paperclip and the JFKA. I have been following various discussions on the Education Forum for a long time and am glad to finally join.

UK-based amateur historian with a long standing interest in US politics and pop culture since studying it to degree level many moons ago. Obviously Dallas plays a huge part in how events have unfolded in the following near 60 years. Devote some time to the guitar, too.

I’ve been interested in the JFK assassination for many years. I’ve read many books and articles on the subject and on related topics, and I’ve been following discussions on these matters in the Education Forum for a long time. I’m interested in geopolitics, history, literature, the arts generally and psychology. Politically I regard myself as anti-authoritarian and pro-democracy rather than left or right.

Hi, all! I'm James Wilkinson, and I'm a Seattle-based union organizer by day and screenwriter by night -- the former for over 20 years and the latter for the last 7, with one paid option sale under my belt. Before beginning my career in activism, I majored in journalism at Northwestern in the '90s, having been turned onto investigative reporting after being gobsmacked by the JFK movie's theatrical run as a high school freshman.

I'm endeavoring to write and develop dramatic projects that aspire to be innovative, fresh approaches to the subject of the JFK assassination -- through a rigorous synthesis of early statements and primary source documents. In the course of this ongoing research, my writing has benefited greatly by exposure to the expertise on this forum, as well as from the private guidance of one particular well-known, seasoned researcher. I think I may have also had the occasion to stumble onto at least one unique, clarifying discovery myself, so far... We'll see!

You could say I've caught the bug, although I'd been intermittently following various developments in the case over the past 30 years and read more books on the topic than I can remember. Much love and appreciation to all of you who are committed to learning as much as we can know -- as well as to admitting when we're uncertain, let alone when a charlatan's convenient claims have been debunked.
