(PART 363)


Oswald was not dyslexic. There isn't a single example of Oswald being afflicted with dyslexia.


Walt, as usual, doesn't know what he's talking about.

Quoting from Vincent Bugliosi's book:

"The Warren Commission hired Dr. Howard P. Rome, a psychiatrist for the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, to analyze Oswald's writings and give his professional opinion. In a letter to Warren Commission assistant counsel Wesley Liebeler dated September 8, 1964, Rome concluded that Oswald was suffering from "constitutional dyslexia," [CE3134; Pg. 7] a "reading-spelling disability" that can exist, he said, "in the absence of intellectual defect or of defect of the sense organs." " -- Page 944 of "Reclaiming History" (c.2007)

I guess Walt thinks he knows more about diagnosing dyslexia than professional psychiatrist Dr. Howard Rome does. Huh, Walt?

And, once more, here we have another situation where all I had to do was turn to the comprehensive pages of Vincent Bugliosi's "Reclaiming History" in order to swiftly and easily debunk the ill-informed ramblings of a conspiracy-happy kook (Walter C.).

This same thing has happened numerous other times since May 2007 when I've been in need of readily accessible and easy-to-locate information in order to illustrate how wrong most conspiracy theorists are on virtually every single issue that surfaces associated with John F. Kennedy's murder.

I merely search the "Reclaiming History" index for the sub-topic being mangled by the conspiracy kooks...and almost every time Vince has supplied a goodly amount of conspiracy-debunking material for the sub-topic in question (like this "dyslexia" subject, for example).

I just skimmed the index of "RH" under the name "Oswald, Lee Harvey", knowing I was likely to find a sub-section there for "dyslexia of"....and, sure enough, there are several references to this subject in the book's massive 71-page index, including the quoted passage from page 944 that I cited above.

Now, in my opinion, THAT is the ultimate definition of a "reference book" -- i.e., a book you can turn to with respect to virtually ANY sub-topic when it comes to the main topic of "The Assassination of JFK", and you're very likely to find the answer there.

That is the beauty of Vincent T. Bugliosi's "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY" -- a book, indeed, "for the ages".
