photos. April fool, Lee.

De Mohrenschildts visit Oswald's the Easter weekend of April 13-14 to give
them a rabbit (I think to eat). Mrs. Mohrenschildt is shown Lee's rifle in
a closet by Marina, so I don't think Lee spends 4 hours retrieving the
rifle from Walker's on Easter Sunday. Maybe April 13, the day before.

bus bound for Houston. Late that night, he places a phone call to Horace Twiford, an
official of the Texas Socialist Labor Party.
Oswald is fired from Stovall Monday, April 1. The day after the backyard
photos. April fool, Lee.
De Mohrenschildts visit Oswald's the Easter weekend of April 13-14 to give
them a rabbit (I think to eat). Mrs. Mohrenschildt is shown Lee's rifle in
a closet by Marina, so I don't think Lee spends 4 hours retrieving the
rifle from Walker's on Easter Sunday. Maybe April 13, the day before.
In the McMillan book, "Marina and Lee", Marina said she found Oswald in
the kitchen one evening sitting on a chair in the kitchen weeping. He told
her he had been fired from the photo company and he didn't know what they
were going to do.

It was then they decided to return to the Soviet Union. Marina didn't want
to go back but she wouldn't leave Oswald. Oswald had Marina write a letter
to the Soviet Embassy asking that they be allowed back.

But before Marina sent the letter Oswald requested in it that their
requests be treated separately. They would go back as individuals and not
as a family. He had other plans.

It was then that he began agitating on behalf of Castro.

Of course, our conspiracy friends - those that think this was all a ruse -
will say this was part of the CIA's plan to connect Oswald to Castro. That
LHO was ordered to do all of this; probably by Phillips. And from there to
use him to shoot JFK.

People will exert a great deal of energy and effort in order to believe in
illusions. Thus the thousands of conspiracy books.

September 25, 1963: LHO collects his unemployment check of $33. Later, he catches a
bus bound for Houston. Late that night, he places a phone call to Horace Twiford, an
official of the Texas Socialist Labor Party.
Oswald is fired from Stovall Monday, April 1. The day after the backyard
photos. April fool, Lee.
De Mohrenschildts visit Oswald's the Easter weekend of April 13-14 to give
them a rabbit (I think to eat). Mrs. Mohrenschildt is shown Lee's rifle in
a closet by Marina, so I don't think Lee spends 4 hours retrieving the
rifle from Walker's on Easter Sunday. Maybe April 13, the day before.
In the McMillan book, "Marina and Lee", Marina said she found Oswald in
the kitchen one evening sitting on a chair in the kitchen weeping. He told
her he had been fired from the photo company and he didn't know what they
were going to do.
It was then they decided to return to the Soviet Union. Marina didn't want
to go back but she wouldn't leave Oswald. Oswald had Marina write a letter
to the Soviet Embassy asking that they be allowed back.
But before Marina sent the letter Oswald requested in it that their
requests be treated separately. They would go back as individuals and not
as a family. He had other plans.
It was then that he began agitating on behalf of Castro.
Of course, our conspiracy friends - those that think this was all a ruse -
will say this was part of the CIA's plan to connect Oswald to Castro. That
LHO was ordered to do all of this; probably by Phillips. And from there to
use him to shoot JFK.
Hey, you're not trying very hard. If you put just a little more effort
into this hoax you could find the one conspiracy kook who has a theory
that this was all part of a CIA plot to infiltrate Oswald into Cuba to
assassinate Castro. I think the guy even made a TV episode about it.

People will exert a great deal of energy and effort in order to believe in
illusions. Thus the thousands of conspiracy books.

Hey, you're not trying very hard. If you put just a little more effort
