Hi moste,

In case you hadn't noticed, Valerie Storie is not the one on trial here and it's a criminal, not a moral case, from 1961, not 1861.

If you have nothing nice to say about the victim, and...

Dick Dastardly's Diary

Hi Colin,

I suppose the question really ought to be: How well educated did the author of the diary think Jim was?

Or even: How well educated did the author want "Sir Jim/Jack the Ripper" to appear?...

Hi rj,

Sounds about right to me.



Not quite, rj. Mike had been assured that his share of the book royalties [50/50 with Shirley IIRC] were likely to be very substantial indeed.
