BD, I starting to come around to your thought that the body should have
been taken to a private pathologist in Washington who was more familiar
with gunshot wounds. I just don't know how, in their state of mind, they
would have thought of that or who it would have been. Maybe Burkley on
AF-1 should have asked for help with that from the WH Situation Room.
But I think Burkley had adrenal gland "insufficiency" on his mind. When
you're talking about the Kennedys, things aren't always what they seem.
Can you say "Monday Morning Quarterback", Mark?
How about "Back seat driver"?
Okay, now seriously...
There is nothing we can do about the past, is there?
How about the present and the future? Are you aware of some historical
developments (Perhaps I am exaggerating a bit?) that are happening as we
speak, some initiated in this NG and all over forumland?
(1) Either Urban Legend or actual policy had it that Ted Kennedy, in a
"Gift of Deed" in the late 1960s made a secret deal with the National
Archives: Only low quality, poor resolution, analog copies of the two
X-rays most famous in history would be allowed outside the premises. Well,
that was then, JFK Numbers is now.
(2) As soon as those two autopsy X-rays are digitized (one
anterior/posterior, another lateral) plus another radiograph, pre-mortem,
provided by the victim's dentist, located in the JFK Library in Boston, a
copy (DICOM files of the utmost accuracy) will be sent to a team of
scientists in Berlin:
Another historic first.
(3) They will proceed to study the images and will issue their
determination (subject to peer review and contrasting findings by the
world top specialists on that field) about the legitimacy of the bone
material (the much debated spot). Unlike previous "scientific" studies,
every single file will be placed on public Internet servers. We are giving
them to their rightful owners: The People.
More history being made, and all began in this NG and other forums.
(4) A 3D projection of the cranium (later, perhaps, cerebrum matter) will
Man, this looks like the History Channel! :-)
(5) Such model will be donated to the National Archives. They already gave
the pre-approval to my idea, pending the Kennedy's.
3D Computer Model donation? Completely unprecedented.
(6) The esteemed Notable Doctors of the LN persuasion will be invited to
participate a co-sign the petitions, declarations, etc.
Another one for the books.
Question: Is there any possible, logical reason for you Mark, David Von
Pein, Big Dog, Jason, Steve Galbraith ... all the way to professor McAdams
NOT to support those initiatives? Perhaps you have scientists that you
trust, from the best schools and centers of research, and would like to
get a copy (I will be glad to provide it, from my not-too-deep pocket),
for further scientific scrutiny?
