On the occasion of Mark Lane's passing, Jim DiEugenio looks back at his autobiography, concluding: "Lane’s life stands out as a man who did what he could to correct the evil and injustice in the world around him, with no target being too small or too large in that regard. This book stands out like a beacon in the night. It shows both what a citizen should be, and what an attorney can be."
The final installment of Seamus Coogan's extended critique of John Hankey and Dark Legacy / JFK II.
Seamus Coogan continues his critique of John Hankey's claims and exposure of his mistakes and misrepresentations.
More replies to Hankey from Seamus Coogan.
In the early days after the Rolling Stone article appeared, it appears that [Saint John] and his brother actually had a good deal of skepticism towards what their father had told him about the mechanics of the assassination. What happened to that skepticism? ... Hunt's personal story, with some good supplementary research about his father and mother, could have been politically interesting and personally compelling. But it didn't come out that way, concludes Seamus Coogan.
By any standards, Lane's resume is impressive, and I have a great deal of respect for the man. So it is with heavy heart that I must say his latest and most likely his last book on the murder of JFK is—for me at least—a little disappointing, writes Martin Hay.

All in all, although the new version is a slight improvement, this is still an inferior film that does not do our cause any good, writes Jim DiEugenio.
