Hello All. Kudos to Simon Wood for the excellent Cutbush piece.
Is it possible for yet another suspect to bite the dust?
I could not agree more. Simon Wood has put together something VERY special here. It raises questions that run deep. Perhaps even a box opener. I think Cutbush has reached the end of the road- Cutbush City Limits. Simon has to my mind at least prodded Macnaugthen's memoranda into the position it should be- and Melville himself into a corner. Ostrog is now a total dead
duck and Druitt- well there you go. He only touched on Kosminski- but having taken the memorandum to pieces, it didnt need to do much to Kosminski anyway.
Your own piece Lynn, SHOULD be a classic. But will the people dare to accepti t?
You are getting there my friend- a very convincing argument indeed.

The last time I published something was in 2003. At that time I swore off. Looks like I lied.
Lynn, was the 2003 publication philosophy-related? I've always been saying, you teach too much! :-)
And it's nice to hear that folks are being on and writing on their articles/books left and right.
I'll read Rip #125 in about a week or so, when I've finished with some urgent work-related/bureaucracy stuff I'm taking care of big time right now and get rid of that stupid cold. And looking forward to Simon Wood on the “pencil pushers“.
Sam Flynn writes the editorial, where he tells us we're too hard on flighty Ripper fiction, then goes on to describe Ripper non-fiction as "premature ejaculation". So apparently we're not too hard on non-fiction.
Myself I see Ripper non-fiction as postpartum depression – cuz most of the sources are gone. Lol.
Weird editorial. Sounds like something out of Playboy.
Yes, I would much rather see Sam Flynn (aka Gareth) writing thought-provoking, well-researched pieces like he did back in the day instead of rushed editorials that denigrate the life-blood of Ripperology itself, which in turn necessitates journals such as the one he's writing editorials for. You know who wrote great editorials? Christopher Michael Digrazia, aka CMD.
