Kennedy had only one right eye

May 21, 2011

Question

Kennedy had only one right eye whereas Lincoln had only one left eye

d - SA (21607)

Answer

Lincoln's left eye was slightly smaller than his right eye, which may have been a facial defect. I have not heard of any defect to either of Kennedy's eyes.

Start the Fire

Purpose for historical items

May 17, 2011

Question

what was his pupose for writing each of the following in that time phrase:
rosenberg('51); dien bien phu falls('54); budapest('56); trouble in the suez('56); chou en lai('57); belgians in the congo('60); eichman('61); berlin('61); begin('64-'89); bernie (bernard) goetz('64-'89)

matt - USA (21592)

Answer

Each of those items was an important event in the news. A few, such as Chou en-Lai and Bernie Goetz, were people who made news events.

Note that Billy Joel also selected items, such that they fit the rhythm of his song lyrics.

Happy Birthday Mr. Joel,

Was Lincoln in Monroe, Maryland?

December 20, 2010

Question

Is it true that days before assassination, that Lincoln was in Monroe, Maryland? I love that joke, forgive me if you've heard it a million times.

Joe - USA (20887)

Answer

Right now, there is no Monroe, Maryland. However, there is a town called Highlands of Monroe in Maryland. There is no record whether there was a Monroe, Maryland when Lincoln was president.

The other half of the joke is incorrect, since Marilyn Monroe died over one year before Kennedy's assassination.

Concerning Nord Davis Jr. and Kennedy

September 20, 2010

Question

Since I am not allowed to share website URL's, I'll try it like this.
The late Nord Davis Jr. wrote a pamphlet only a few years after the Kennedy assasination. It is probably the most interesting information I have ever read on the Kennedy assasination. Here is a hint at how you can find it, and it is hard to find on the internet.....I wonder why???

Anglo-Saxon Israel . com / site / dallasconspiracy

Mark - USA (20410)

Answer

The information may be in his collective works book:
http://www.amazon.com/Miscellaneous-Collection-Works-Nord-Davis/dp/B0036BS23M

Also see: "Dallas Conspiracy: JFK Assassination Solved" by Nord Davis, Jr., August 1968 (xerox copy) -- referenced at:
http://www.selu.edu/acad_research/programs/csls/historical_collections/archival_collections/h_k/kennedy_john_f_assas.html

There are other resources, although Davis was not a mainstream writer. A pamphlet will get little attention.

Tom - USA (20400)

Another coincidence

September 18, 2010

Mark - USA (20401)

Answer

I've heard that one too. Unfortunately, it doesn't really fit within a historical context.
