Can we "Blame" the British?


Recommended Posts

I reckon that Alec Douglas-Home was one of the tramps in Dealey Plaza.

Do not know!

May have been, although quite doubtful.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christchurch

Christchurch is the regional capital of Canterbury, New Zealand. It is the largest city in the South Island, as well as the second largest city and third largest urban area of New Zealand. A coastal city, it is situated just north of Banks Peninsula, midway down the South Island's eastern coast.

The city is named after the Christ Church cathedral, which is itself named after Christ Church, a college at the University of Oxford, and the Cathedral of Oxford. The city was originally known as Christ Church, the written form consolidating by the 1880s.

Just thinking out loud here, but if "ya'll" (you all for the yankees & Brits) knew about it this much in advance, then "ya'll" must have had some part in it.

P.S. For John:

Need to look out your back door. Is not New Zealand just a stone's throw away?

Back to the "posting" problems.

The above did not go to the head of the class.

Perhaps because it (or it's author) is just having fun??

Under the assumption that "Someone Would Have Talked", then just perhaps Someone Did!

And, quite possibly, this reveals much about the virtual instant release of far TOO much information on the subject matter of LHO.

And the "Fat Lady" still has not sung.

But I do believe that I hear someone beginning to hum "DIXIE"!

Just not certain as to where it is about money, cotton, or perhaps both.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dixie

The word "Dixie" refers to a privately issued currency from banks in Louisiana[1]. These banks issued ten-dollar notes, labeled "Dix" (French for "ten") on the reverse side. These notes are now highly sought-after for their numismatic value. The notes were known as "Dixies" by English-speaking southerners, and the area around New Orleans and the Cajun-speaking parts of Louisiana came to be known as "Dixieland". Eventually, usage of the term broadened to refer to most of the Southern States.

I Wish I Was in Dixie

Main article: "Dixie (song)"

"I Wish I Was in Dixie's Land" Sheet music"I Wish I Was in Dixie" is a popular song about the South. It was written by composer Daniel Emmett, a Northerner, and published in 1859. A blackface minstrel-show troupe debuted the song that same year in New York City. As with other minstrel show numbers, the song was performed in blackface and in exaggerated Black English Vernacular. The song proved extremely popular and became widely known simply as "Dixie". The song has also been published as "Dixie's Land".

The song became the unofficial anthem of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. This and the tune's minstrel-show origins have created a strong association of "Dixie" with the Old South. As a result, some today view the song as offensive and racist.

On The Dukes of Hazzard, the horn of the General Lee played the first 12 notes of the melody from "Dixie."

Tom do you believe in ghosts.

Was Lewis Carroll's ghostly hand involved in the WC report.

as well as Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

John;

As good as you appear to be at "reading" what's there but not mentioned, it should be fairly easy for you to follow the trail that Specter & Company did not leave.

"Rabbit holes Galore"!
