That is exactly my point. This case is "Whisper Down the Alley" on steroids.

Who has actually researched it? What we had going on were both sides taking their corners. Either it was absolutely "true" or absolutely "false." No one bothered to look into it.

What I found was that a Reporter had been telling people he wrote the "phone number" there. No side "likes" that because on one side it undermines the legitimacy of any evidence collected. On the other side it means Hauptmann wrote the address.

Over the years the story turned into Cassidy being responsible for ALL of the writing but that isn't the truth and not what was admitted to.

While the books were a good starting point, the files need to be consulted to check out their "facts." But even here too many people get emotional about what they contain. So what they do not "like" is shrugged off and what they do is embraced. There is no standard other than that.

For example: Like Condon? Well then he's a kindly old man who sometimes forgets things. Facts either do not matter or they are applied on a slide rule.

        Okay. So we have Henry Paynter, the writer of the telephone number on the trim board, admitting to C. Lloyd Fisher that he wrote the telephone number. Fisher had this information and did nothing... more

          You are assuming quite a bit here aren't you? Ask yourself "why." There were many sources for this and not just Fisher. What I can tell you (since I've read hundreds of documents penned by Fisher) is ... more

            I am not assuming quite a bit of anything. I am going by the facts you presented. That Henry Paynter told Fisher that he wrote the telephone number on the trim board and then Fisher told Governor... more

              I am not trying to insult you but what I see is that you had made up your mind prior to any of this and now seek to justify that position. Its a natural phenomenon - especially among the ranks of... more

                How can a person make up their mind about a garbage can story like Henry Paynter's? It isn't even a fact. A fact is something that can be proved to be true. Based on Fisher's inaction concerning... more

                  What you are doing is attempting to disprove something "you" don't like based upon what "you" think "you" would have done in that situation. I believe this is a flawed approach for more reasons than... more
