Suppose there had to be SOMEONE who liked Cornwell.....
and here he is!
By the way,corncerning the end of your post 21,Pirate Jack....it went something like...Yo!Patricia,some of Casebook loves you..........
Pray tell,who else apart from your goodself is included in this statement?
Having tried to get interested in reading just one of her books before completely giving up on civilisation as we know it,I would GLADLY leave Patricia Cornwell to get on with her writing in peace....at the end of a launch pad in the hope that NASA would take pity on us all,and let some unsuspecting aliens receive a gift that is guaranteed to bore them to tears.
Hey!Iv'e just come up with the perfect solution to getting a look at them....they're bound to try to return it.
BUT WE WILL BE READY FOR THEM.

I don't mind Ms Cornwell at all.
Anyone who generates that amount of venom from the Ripper community is okay by me.

You have plainly and clearly failed to read my posts..

My case is simple, and it has nothing to do with Sickert as a suspect...

My case is about respect, and people having the right top argue fore whichever suspect they feel, without personal abuse being fired..

My case is that I have not, so far, seen evidence that Patricia Cornwall has been firing personal abuse..and that her attack on Sickert is no different to that directed at any other suspect..

Please read what is said..not what you interpret as being said.

Well actually there are many people who are sick of silly name calling at Patricia..casebook is not the only forum in the world..but I am happy to stand alone against 'bullys'..... I've done it before and I will always stand for what I beleive...

Then your post goes off into some strange rant about aliens..what planet are you on? is this some kind of cross atlantic humour bye pass?

Just trying to make some sembelance of what it is you are actually trying to say?????

Jeff,

The insults Cornwell threw were in a documentary she did, news interviews she gave promoting her book and, I do believe, her book.

They were aimed at researchers of, and those interested in, this subject of Jack, of which I am one. So yes, I take it as personal.

Monty

As some people are clearly miss understanding what my gripe with Dan Norder is about, let me make it perfectly clear, it is about this statement:

"She surrounds herself with yes men (or, more often, yes women) to stoke her own ego. She's basically bought an undeserved reputation as an expert and uses it to fool her target audience into thinking they are getting the real thing".

It is a statement clearly aimed at people currently in Patricia's employ..it is a statement that is factually incorrect and clearly a statement born on the individual prejudice of its creator..

this is not an argument about Walter Sickert who was clearly in France at teh time of the murders..

However research on Sickert is clearly justifiable as the possibility remains that he MAY have written hoax letters?

Any research that adds to our understanding of the JtR murders is clearly justifiable and beneficial to Ripperology..

That is the argument in hand..

next...

If dear old Pat were to pass me twenty gold sovereigns right now I'd lay down my sad hide for her, and a fine fully rigged sloop with twenty good cannon to blaze a trail of glory through their manky fleet; but I'd have to bite her coin with me teeth, take me pleasure with 'er and have a good bottle of that fine Japan whisky.
By god, I'd nail her tits to the table.

And I rarely do suspect pointing but should I hold favour with a particular suspect, rest assured that it will be based on daming evidence rather that the possibility this suspect wrote letters and looked like a 'sick bastard'.

I have utmost respect for what you are saying...

But really..I have not seen these..please could you give 'quoted' referance, and source information..

I can not be expected to discuss this seriously without knowing exactly what was said and where these referances are?

Yours Jeff
