    I’d like to see diaries on the medical witnesses, their statements, their testimonies, their materials.

    JFK Facts aims at getting to the facts. I believe there are some facts to be garnered from the medical record as I read Drs. Aguilar and Mantik.

    Gladwell and Hickey are pretty much a dead horse. The ex-flame story has a title that borders on tabloid quality. The other three diaries got a pretty good airing. Time for fresh material.

      Great idea. Time for some medical evidence and also some media criticism on what medical evidence gets more widely circulated and which is confined to “buffyville,” a suburb determined by what Big Media editors determine to print and screen or not print and screen.

      I have a book that recently came out by some of the Parkland doctors and nurses entitled “We Were There” or something like that.

      (I only browsed a few pages but didn’t see anything noteworthy. It may not be authored by key medical personnel or witnesses who have written their own books, or the book stayed away from controversial issues.)
