Totally. And Bob Gimlin hasn't come clean about the Patterson Bigfoot hoax, either. He's not done so, because it's the real deal. :scratchchin:

The personal journal of James Maybrick would be seen as being a rather interesting and worthy piece of history, and there'd be no need to craft any Ripper story onto it.
