Rich, didn't we meet years ago at Highfields? I had an enlarged photograph, 15"X34", of Hauptmann's handwritten autobiography that he wrote for James Fawcett. I put it on the ground and you took a photo of it with your cell phone.

Steve Romeo was there that day with us. I also remember climbing Kelvin Keraga's duplicate kidnap ladder up to the nursery window.

On the way home that day I thought about Hauptmann making a claim in court about the kidnap ladder, "How can a man climb up?"Hauptmann was referring to the distance between the ladder rungs.

Hauptmann was trying to chump the jury. I'm 5' 6" tall and I went up the kidnap ladder with no problem at all. I was over fifty years old at the time.

A leprechaun could have climbed the ladder. Especially when there was a potential $50,000 dollars at the end of their little rainbow.

    No, I am not familiar with the Bush memo case. And the way in which you wrote a line or two makes me think you are a handwriting "expert." Are you, or was that all conjecture?,
