For a few weeks some JFK-assassination forums have been inundated with hundreds of posts piling up on threads about a new conspiracy theory.
Looking at a shadowy figure in a blurry picture, some fringe conspiracy theorists claim that Lee Harvey Oswald was on the steps of the Texas School Book Depository building at the time of the shooting, thus "proving" his innocence.
That's funny, really.
Last year Ralph Cinque and his friends told us that Billy Lovelady (the man we see on the famous Altgens picture), a man on the steps of the TSBD, was not really Billy Lovelady but was, in fact, none other than Lee Harvey Oswald.
OK, why not ?
But now, a Sean Murphy and some of his followers tell us that a shadowy figure whom they call "Prayer man", a man on the steps of the TSBD, is, in fact, none other than Lee Harvey Oswald.
So, if we are to believe them, there were two Oswalds, on the steps, at the very same time, side by side.
Lee Harvey Oswald and Lee Harvey Oswald, together, watching the motorcade...
Fascinating, indeed !
Can you imagine Lee Oswald, in custody at the Dallas Police Headquarters, telling the reporters in the hall :
"No, they've taken me in because of the fact that I was on the steps with another myself. I'm just two patsies."
Conspiracy theorists will never ceaze to amaze me !
But please, don't laugh, or a nobody called Colin Crow may be angry at you...
