Wow. That's quite a bit of light bedtime reading there. :beer:
Oswald's Tale by Norman Mailer is on the book shelf of my local second hand bookshop. I've been tossing up whether to buy it or not knowing what a fair weather friend Mailer is and that he wrote it to pay his income tax bill.
"The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it." Karl Marx

"He would, wouldn't he?" Mandy Rice-Davies. When asked in court whether she knew that Lord Astor had denied having sex with her.

“I think it would be a good idea” Ghandi, when asked about Western Civilisation.

Don't waste your time on Mailer's book. Or read JFK and the Unspeakable. Or The Last Investigation by Gaeton Fonzi. Those are 3 solid books. If you need to talk in person I can be reached at 512-306-1510.
Thanks Robert. I have JFK and the Unspeakable which is fantastic but I haven't read Fonzi's book yet. If only there were more than 24 hours in the day to get all the reading I want to do done.

Uh, are you sure you want to post your phone number on the web?
Best: JFK and the Unspeakable.
Worst: Ultimate Sacrifice. Then again I haven't read Posner and Bugliosi.
from 11AM - 11PM Central ... If Kim Khardashian posted her number on the internet she might get a few phone calls... My phone number is ALL OVER the internet and you would be surprised how few I get. But if you want to talk JFK assassination, I there for ya! Teach me, I am always willing to learn.

Also email me at and I will send you my constantly updated "LBJ and CIA killed JFK" file in Word document form.

Do read Gaeton Fonzi, The Last Investigation.
An inside view of the HSCA by an investigator with integrity, intelligence and insight.
A unique look at David Atlee Phillips. On the trail of the shadowy DeMohrenschildt. Getting a whiff of Blakey.

I called Robert and recommend it. A chance to chat rapid-fire and wide-ranging over the decades of investigation and research.

Ready to begin Horne, Inside the ARRB, Volume I; having now completed V, IV, III, and II.

Have added another book to my wish list:
Orlando Martin
JFK. Analysis of a shooting: The ultimate ballistics truth exposed

Myra, Robert's phone number is already all over the web. Smile
