Dick Russell's "On the Trail of the JFK Assassins"
#2
I am just starting this book now. Interesting first chapter on Popkin. Anyone know what later became of his research? What direction did he end up following further? Was he punished by his academic institution for delving into such topical scepticism?

I also found the 1975ishness of the article quite interesting. The writing style seems in some way influneced by "the new journalism" but at a time when Conspiracy Theory did not have all of the same pejoratives associated with the period of 1992-96, when the current incarnation of the term was reborn by the good people at Time and Newsweek.
