Ronelle to Bob Mills
you're kidding me?

"Anonymous is right in citing these examples."

You're kidding? He has cited only "examples" of the AFTERMATH - when he became known as BRUNO by every living human on earth because the Cops and the Press re-Germanized him. You know this is true Bob and you must also have understood my question. I was NOT referring to the AFTERMATH when everyone on earth called him BRUNO.

I really thought my point in this argument about Zorn's book is obvious but even you haven't gotten my point....Zorn Sr. couldn't have heard people talking about a BRUNO since no one knew him as such.

Anonymous, as usual, is trying to distract everyone here from this true fact by starting a nonsensical disturbance to divert attention from a factual flaw in Zorn's book.

    For some reason notorious villains (whether convicted fairly or not) are commonly known by three names, if they have three. Ronelle is right that nobody ever called Hauptmann "Bruno" socially, but... more

        Ronelle, he was "Richard" to everyone in his social milieu, and he only wanted to be known as "Richard." But if my memory serves, he was "Bruno Richard Hauptmann" on his driver's license, which... more

          Interesting about the three name thing, Bob. Not sure what to make of it. How's about John Wesley Hardin? But seriously: I've read Zorn's book and saw the TV special. The book was good if not... more

            But, the idea that a 15 year old boy who understands no word of the German language "remembers" - by way of a provocative article in a magazine 3 decades later - a "secret plot" spoken supposedly for ... more

              Yes, Ronelle, I too am dubious as to the value of shrinks, faith healers, therapists of all kinds but the physical; and I may as well throw the so-called political pundits who dominate the airwaves... more

                  Alas, Ronelle, my post featured some unfortunate word usage, by which I didn't mean to imply that the elderly Condon had any designs whatsoever on toddler CAL, Jr. or that the police seriously... more

                I would have to re-read Schoenfeld all over again and nowadays I don't think I could keep even one eyelid open doing that. Though there would certainly have to be some sort of "expertise" involved in ... more

          He never went by "Bruno Richard Hauptmann" before his arrest, even on his driver's license. A couple of authors have written have claimed this was the name that came back to Finn from the department... more
