Subject: RE: Re:Rebuttal to Groves' Theory...Thanks, J.D.!

Message Detail:
Thanks, J.D., for sending out the rebutall to Groves' theory on the Devil's Den sharpshooter. I haven't had the opportunity to read it yet, but can't wait! I've saved it to my hard drive.

J.D., let me add my thanks to you for sending the "rebuttal" - I used quotes because it only appears to skim the surface.... I went back to re-read Grove's report, and while I'm not convinced by all of his arguments, I'd still be interested in seeing an in-depth rebuttal....maybe someone's master's thesis in the future.



I agree - what Adelman wrote is very superficial, and mainly only attacks Groves' intentions. I would still like to see someone's point-by-point rebuttal of Groves' theory. To my knowledge no one's done that yet. We have to keep in mind that both Adelman and Smith are 'disciples' of Frassanito. For all of Adelman's investigative and research prowess, it's disappointing that he didn't get detailed in his remarks.

I've taken time to print out and read Adelman's rebuttal....I was a little disappointed. I first came across Jim Groves report in the Fall of 1998, through the now defunct other chat board. I took time to read it all, after printing all the pages. He's taken a great deal time and effort, IMHO, to do that report.
I may not totally agree with each and every statement Mr. Groves reports on, but I think it should be considered. It is a shame his report is being brushed off...... His theory is as good as the other one, if not better.
Thanks, Barb
