New Zealand Newspaper...too many details too soon?

Hello,

This is my contribution du jour (some might say du annee). We're all aware of the segment in Oliver Stone's "JFK" wherein the Fletcher Proutyesque character played by Donald Sutherland voices-over a scene that shows him seeing a newspaper in New Zealand that purportedly hit the streets about two hours or less after the assassination. The timeline debate continues on various sites.

That debate aside, here is a nicely done site with a digitized version of the salient segments of that edition of The Christ Church Star, in case you hadn't seen it before:

John,

Please refer to pages 305-307 of my book "No Case To Answer" for details of my examination and explanation of the Christchurch Star mystery. I believe I have put this one to rest.

Perhaps, not unlike Jesus Christ and the Phoenix, it has resurrected.

Thanks guys...no surprise this has been addressed here at some point(s). The material from both of you is very much appreciated. Maybe others will do the New Zealand redux.

Well,

That's what I get for taking a sabbatical coincident with the above! This was outstanding, Tom, I must say. I read it all and wondered aloud why some of the correspondents were off on different trips altogether. The connections to LA are most interesting.

One catches the stench of The New World Order almost immediately; to borrow from Tennessee Williams, like "the low tide of her cheap perfume."

You most probably also missed the refresher on exactly who Mr. Waldo was, since we now know where he is.

Since the above posting did not move to the head of the class and it did not take Mr. Waldo's photo, will try again.

Waldo, James Curtis, writer and journalist, son of James Elliot and

Eveline Almira (Cobb) Waldo; born at Meredosia Ill., Dec. 10, 1835;

died at New Orleans, La., Aug. 28, 1901; his mother died in his early

infancy and he was sent to live with an uncle, Rev. Josiah Waldo, at

Troy, N. V., where he attended the Troy academy; came to New Orleans in

1848 and after courses at local schools entered his father's firm;

removed to New York in 1857, where he engaged in wholesale mercantile

business up to the opening of the Civil war, when he came South and

entered the Confederate army; served only 1 year when he was honorably

discharged on account of extreme illness; was offered lucrative

appointments by Gen. Butler and the Federal authorities during the

occupation of New Orleans and the reconstruction period, all of which

he declined; after the Civil war entered journalism as a pursuit and

was identified one time or another and in an editorial capacity with

practically every democratic and anti-carpet bag newspaper or

publication in New Orleans; his writings and the bitter denunciations

by him of carpet bag politicians brought him into frequent conflicts

with those in authority during the reconstruction period; was one of

the organizers of the White League, the organization mainly responsible

for restoring white rule in Louisiana; took a conspicuous part in the

events immediately preceding and which followed the battle of the 14th

Sept., 1874, in which conflict he was an active participant; he is best

known and remembered for his poems published under the nom de plume of

"Tim Linkenwater"; "A Christmas Carol," originally written for the

newsboys of the New Orleans Times, has been translated into eight

languages; within 3 weeks of the publication in the New Orleans

Picayune of "An Old Heirloom," it had been copied by newspapers and

periodicals from coast to coast; he was the moving spirit of several

carnival organizations and was one of the 8 founders of the Carnival

Court; married Margaret Mary Woods; children, Janey Waldo Marks (Mrs.

Sumter Davis Marks), Eveline A., Harry J., James Curtis 2nd (died in

infancy), Catherine Woods, Margaret (died in infancy), Anna (died in

infancy), James Curtis 3rd, and Benjamin Taylor.

Certainly no suprise here that R. H. Waldo ultimately became the Commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Not that it has a bearing on anything but: after serving only one (1) year, then (honorably as you show above, medically) discharged? He rose to THAT position in the SCV?
