    I was surprised the Bill Newman credible witness discussion didn’t make the top 5; it attracted some of the top Internet ‘Oswald did it’ sharks in waves. William Manchester has an interesting analysis of LHO in his 1967 book, ‘The Death Of A President’: Lee was competing with Ruth Paine for the affection & attention of Marina. The competition level increased after Ruth wrote Marina a letter telling her she ‘loved her’ & asked Marina to live together permanently. In other words(according to Manchester), Marina dumped Lee for a woman & Lee tried to impress her by shooting at both Walker & JFK. Pretty heavy stuff for 1967.
