The Girl on the Stairs - Barry Ernest Finally had to give up around 349... 349 pages about some girl's 15 second jaunt down a small wooden staircase is more than I can take.... Some interesting stuff, but very repetitive, and little of it new. Author tries to buttress his credibility by claiming all the "serious researchers" knew him.

One thing that has to worry serious assassination buffs is why, even after 50years, there seems to be not ONE serious academic study... Or even course on the topic... No one at Yale, Columbia, even Berkely publishing on the topic -- only some dude at Hood College (a third-rate school here in Maryland). It is strange...

(That Hood book, on the Warren Commission is a pretty good book, btw....)

Nowadays, when literally ANYthing goes... Eco-feminist interpretations of the Platonic demiurge being published by Harvard Univ. Press.... ad nauseam..., not ONE serious academic-sponsored book on JFK.... I can't figure it....
