Maybe my memory is bad again, but I thought Messenger Smith was the one who was forced by Logan to enter the car with him, and LOGAN was the one who placed and lit the dynamite.

Not so, according to an interview with Smith two days after the robbery. In this interview he claims that firemen O'Neill all 3 times was forced to go into the car, place the dynamite and light the fuse, then go check the damage.

How this jibes with the claim that Logan was in there with smith and gave him his gun I am not sure. In my script of the robbery, I force them together at the end and do the gun gift, but smith makes no mention of bring given a gun in his July 5 interview...

I think Dan would smell a rat here

          Vince, It would be good to line up all the eye-witness accounts to see how they vary. Most such accounts vary to one degree or another. More research required. Dan
