      Hi,

      Do you have any evidence for that?

      Best wishes.

        G'day Dave

        I've got a theory,

        Patricia Cornwell had a grandfather...
        My hypothesis is that she may have had two grandfathers.

        There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

            I dont really understand this little idea of yours.

            Is it little because it has no basis, or is it little because it is not worth bothering about?

            Best wishes.

                Although I dispise the 'trust me' type anecdotal, I can say, as one who had cervical spine surgery on Jan 17 2014, and had metal plates and screws put in my body, that coming off opium based pain medication will drive you crazy. Especially so, in one's inability to achieve paradoxical sleep.
                Ridiculous. As a person who went through opiate withdrawals many times, I can say that opiate withdrawal would make a person far too sick to even get out of bed. Sickert wouldn't have had the physical ability to pull off these crimes if he was detoxing off of opiates. He would have been in his bed sweating, shaking, vomiting, and crapping his pants.

                  It would appear that writing Jack the Ripper letters became some what of a national pastime. None of the letter writers gave their names and addresses, so it would be fair to say that none of the letter writers were actually, in real terms, claiming to be the murderer.

                  Yes,absolutely!
                  Sickert never claimed to be the murderer, he was fascinated by the case, as were many of the cultural community of the time. He had a story about lodging in a room years before, where the landlady had told him, his predecessor, a young veterinary student who she believed was Jack the Ripper. Anybody who believes he was the ripper should read his own fascinating writings rather than a silly book by Cornwall. Sickert was a great artist, involved and engaged with the world around him, his artistic model was Degas, his paintings were of real people. he preferred painting charwomen to duchesses. He was a great raconteur, loved conversation food, women,theatre,music halls,they were the stimulation for his work [ He had many lovers] he had a wide social circle and was completely committed to his art. There was a nothing wrong with his penis, the specialist he saw was for his bottom, he may have had piles.
                  He was in France at the time of the murders.He was creative, loved life, being an artist is a full time business. It is a pity has people lacking his great gifts try to bring him down with silly allegations.
