Maybe it does, maybe it doesn’t.
Depending on how one looks at it, Mr Landis’s story either changes nothing or everything.
Oh. So long as it’s clear, then.
“Are you going solve it to anybody’s 100% satisfaction? No,” Mr Posner said. “It’s a case that will never be closed, for most people.”
For most people?
Yeah, the evidence overwhelmingly supports a single shot and that Oswald acted alone, but let’s just keep making shit up for the clicks!
The full story is here, and it’s a doozy:
Basically, Mr. Willingham got tired of DC basically constantly ignoring and violating his contract, so he’s putting the full IP into the public domain. It doesn’t void his contract with DC, but at least in theory, anybody can play in his universe now.
I have been on that bridge! My mom had a brief rebound marriage to a guy who grew up in that Richfield neighborhood, his parents still lived there in the late 70’s/early 80’s. What isn’t mentioned is there was a public swimming pool on Richfield side that would’ve been accessible to kids from the Boomington side. It wasn’t only for the school.
There’s a new holiday tomorrow (no, not Rosh Hashanah!) and if anyone’s in NYC there are events planned:
This video is cued to start at 24:07. This tells the story of a UFO encounter in Dexter, Michigan in 1966.
Numerous people had various sightings of a large UFO. In one instance, it hovered for four hours over a farmer’s field. Dr. Hynek — at this time still an Air Force stooge — visited the area and made a weak suggestion that it might have been glowing swamp gas.
This was apparently the first use of the clichéed “swamp/marsh gas” explanation.
The local population were upset because they felt that they weren’t being taken seriously. Their congressman, Gerald Ford, organized a hearing to find out what the Air Force was really doing. Walter Cronkite put together a special news report titled “UFOs: Friend, Foe or Fantasy.”
All of this furore sounded familiar.
I feel like this event is what inspired the Creedence Clearwater Revival song “It Came Out of the Sky.”
I highly recommend his works. Get a copy of “Whiskey River” ASAP!
I’ve actually used this argument with regard to quitting practices in businesses, but I think it’s specifically well-suited when it comes to religious situations:
I think this is sort of related to what you’re saying. When I was a middle management engineer for an HVAC manufacturer, the HR department (which was literally 2 people…we weren’t a huge corporation) would conduct an annual employee satisfaction survey. And every year, a consistent conclusion of this survey, along with exit interviews of people who had left the company, was that money was never the primary reason someone left or stayed. And they used this as justification for not raising wages or salaries. It drove me nuts. They were so clearly deluding themselves and getting the answer they wanted, just like your article talks about most people leaving the church for casual reasons instead of because of widespead abuses. It’s amazingly easy to fool yourself when you want to.
Exactly! I have never left a job strictly because of money, but the 20%+ pay raises moving has routinely given me certainly don’t help me want to stick around.
I once had to explain to upper management that when an entire department – all women – leave within 3 months of each other, all citing ‘want to spend more time with family’, that maybe the new hired-from-outside department manager should be considered as the real reason. Let’s see: the employees were all long-standing and considered experienced and professional, and yet starting from about 2 weeks after this new manager started, they just kept handing in their notices with that ‘casual’ explanation until they were all gone within 3 months. Hmmmm, that’s just so tough to figure out.
At a different job I had, the company got sold and the new owners sent in a hot shot young executive to run our company. They had hired him away from Harley Davidson. This was in 1998, so not long after Harley’s noteworthy turnaround. Anyway, this guy comes in and just starts changing everything, and he’s really big on telling people how important our work was. Engineering was behind on a lot of projects, mainly because the sales department would never say no to a customer special request and we didn’t have enough engineers to run that kind of a business. So he calls our engineering manager into his office, and then our engineering manager calls a meeting with all of us to tell us that we are all on mandatory 10 hour days, 6 days a week until further notice. Now, half of the department were degreed engineers. We were salaried, exempt from overtime rules. So we weren’t getting compensated for this. About 2 weeks later, our engineering manager is the first to announce he’s leaving the company. Then our controls engineer a week later, then me a week after that. Within 6 months, all of the degreed engineers had left. A year later, that new hot shot was shown the door, after almost running a 50 year old business into the ground.
