You guys ought to see the absolute equestrian fecal matter that I've been
receiving by e-mail! For openers, Sherman Skolnick is thoroughly convinced
that JFK, Jr was "a hit". I initially thought that, myself...........for
about three, or four hours. When one sees all the bad judgement calls that
John-John made (time of take-off, flight path taken, inexperience, etc.),
it's impossible to think this was a "hit".
The most laughable piece I've seen yet, is one from last night. In part,
it said that the landing strip lights on Martha's Vineyard were so bright
that they blinded John-John. Therefore, he crashed.
Did the author not stop and consider that the wattage necessary to
accomplish this would not have been possible?!?
