Once again, folks, you have to excuse me that I am out of breath.
Not many people know that Dallas NBC (KXAS, Channel 5) is sitting on a
gold mine, a huge reservoir of vintage 1963 film. In their basement,
they have a full room dedicated to it.
After their image (left side) was located, our volunteers (God bless
them!) worked tirelessly, burning the proverbial midnight oil,
attempting to find matching photos.
This morning, Erika shouted: "Eureka!".
Since the suspect is already in jail, it is not clear how to proceed.

Is Ben Carson a racist for supporting Trump?
Not the correct word. They have other words for black people who
cooperate with racists.
The name Carson is of Scottish origin.
Yes, many slaves took the name of their owner. Ever watch Roots?
I saw the miniseries but Alex Haley's book is fiction. Haley plagiarized
Harold Courlander's The African and Margaret Walker's Jubilee.
So you claim. But if it's just plagarizing then presumably you think the
original sources are accurate.
In his Expert Witness Report submitted to federal court, Professor of
English Michael Wood of Columbia University stated:
The evidence of copying from The African in both the novel and the
television dramatization of Roots is clear and irrefutable. The copying is
significant and extensive. ... Roots ... plainly uses The African as a
model: as something to be copied at some times, and at other times to be
modified, but always it seems, to be consulted. ... Roots takes from The
African phrases, situations, ideas, aspects of style and plot. Roots finds
in The African essential elements for its depiction of such things as a
slave's thoughts of escape, the psychology of an old slave, the habits of
mind of the hero, and the whole sense of life on an infamous slave ship.
Such things are the life of a novel; and when they appear in Roots, they
are the life of someone else's novel.
