If your whole purpose in chasing me across threads is because you think I called these stories 'facts' you are most certainly wasting your time & mine too.
You flatter yourself if you think I am chasing you across threads. What happened is that I noticed you saying this:
"After a cursory (preliminary?) examination he determined she had died from a cut to the throat. That is all we know from Phillips's own mouth, isn't it?"
If there is one thing certain in this case, it's that the word "cursory" did not emanate from Dr Phillips' own mouth!
