will someone help this researcher?

I received the following from Jim Fetzer:

Mark,

There are two sites that deal with JFK: assassinationscience.cøm, where I

discuss matters of public policy, and assassinationresearch.com, which is

an on-line journal for advanced study of the death of JFK. I am sending

your inquiry to Jack White, who is better positioned to assist than am I.

Thanks for writing. Good luck with your research!

Jim
