condon's phone number
Sat Jul 7, 2018 14:00

Actually, Steve, Hauptmann didn't admit it. When he was asked if he had written Condon's number on the wall, he was confused, but apparently wanted to help the cops resolve the issue. So he said he must have written it, because he was "...a little bit interested" in the case.

For me, the message here is this: Hauptmann wasn't savvy enough to intuit that someone (a cop or a reporter) would write the number there in an effort to implicate him. If that's wrong, we're left with the impossible notion of someone without a telephone writing a phone number where it couldn't possibly avail him.

            "I guess I must have written (Condon's phone number) on the wall" doesn't sound to me like an admission of guilt. It sounds more like a confused person's effort to answer a hostile question. Michael... more

            I agree the high road is the one that allows for the best viewpoint, and I'm looking forward to reading this section of your book to see what's new under the sun. At the same time, we also need to... more
