    Jean Davison is so hyperactive at JFK Facts, and her lousy book is actually admired by Von Pein and McAdams. So I decided to go back and reread it.

    Its even worse today in light of the new files and research.

    Nothing but a cover up book about Oswald and Marguerite.

    Today it looks like a pile or junk. How anyone can take this woman seriously eludes me. It doesn't look like she left her living room or picked up the phone once to write her lousy book.

    I hate those kinds of writers, writers who do nothing but cherry pick previous sources to arrive at a preconceived conclusion. Here its Oswald killed JFK for Castro.

    Oh really Jean? Was this before or after the Castroite left Banister's office?
    It's really a great service you perform. You read the crap so that we don't have to. Thanks Jim.

    BTW, 'Reclaiming Parkland' is 'state-of-the-art', just like Oliver Stone said. Fantastic effort and essential reading.
    Really. I was just thinking the same thing myself. Jim please tell me you have a life- I know you teach- outside JFK research/writing. You're certainly dedicated. I see also you will be speaking in DC in Sept. Can't make that one but it looks like a great line up.

    I don't know if they're all the same person.
    They are not the same person.

    Yes I am a teacher at a local high school.

    I am actually retiring at end of next year.

    Between my web site, writing for Bob Parry and working, I also work out and have a girlfriend.

    Good, I'd like to see the DiEugenio with more free time unleased on the Lone Nutters.

    I assume you teach history. Your students are very lucky to have you as a teacher. Do the young 'uns show much interest in the JFK assassination?

    I do teach history.

    I used to do a one day seminar on the JFK case. Which was very popular at my old school.

    I kind of sloughed off on that at my new school since I did not think the kids would appreciate it here.

    But since this is my last year, I think I will do it.

    Good for you.

    My wife is from a small town in Kansas, Scandia. Their tiny high school - approximately 30 kids for each graduating class - has a history teacher that spends A WEEK on the JFK assassination every year. His dedication is fantastic. Virtually everyone in the area has a good grasp of the basics.

    This is wonderful! Good to know there are teachers out there subverting the official lie.
    "I think it would be a good idea." Mahatma Gandhi, when asked what he thought of Western civilization.

    The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.
    Karl Marx.

    "Well, he would, wouldn't he?" Mandy Rice-Davies, 1963, replied Ms Rice Davies when the prosecuting counsel pointed out that Lord Astor denied an affair or having even met her.

    I also teach the assassination in my Documentary Film and Film and Society
    courses at San Francisco State University. I do so by showing PRIMARY (which I'm in; I discuss
    the film and the actual experience of being there) and the Zapruder film (three times) and parts of RUSH TO JUDGMENT and JFK. We discuss
    cinema-verite, other forms of documentaries, whether the Z film has
    been altered, and how Stone combines documentary footage with
    the docudrama form. I show the brilliant sequence of Garrison analyzing
    the Z film in JFK, which is a rare example of detailed film analysis in
    a mainstream feature film. Then we talk about how the Z film has
    been altered (with information from Doug Horne et al) and what that means. All this explores the issues from various points of
    view using cinema as a way into the subject. The students are keenly interested
    and receptive.

    The old resistance I felt and still feel from members of my generation to even
    discussing the subject seems not to affect the younger people, who are
    more openminded and skeptical about official stories and less brainwashed by the media. The students
    are always deeply impressed by S. M. Holland giving his account of
    witnessing the assassination from the bridge and by his honesty
    and integrity in questioning the official account. This is a very good and hopeful sign.

    That's fantastic Joseph. Thanks and keep it up.
