Hi Simon,

Out of the two biographies, John Walsh's and Brigid Boardman's, I prefer Boardman's. both are interesting as neither would make me cancel Thompson as a suspect. I have tried to read them as if I had never heard of Thompson as a suspect, but I know it is a futile task for when I read both it was with the eye of someone looking for even the smidgen of information that would tend to show guilt. Sadly I will never be able to read anything on Thompson without my judgment clouded by my bias formed over twenty-years. My opinion is that the Ripper was a piece of S_ _ t yet I can not help feeling admiration for the great poet that Thompson was and sympathy for his troubled life.
