Imagine that in all this great big country we would have such a hard time combining disciplines so often as we do. Even in my small town, the animal control have a hard time finding someone to shoot their dart guns. That combination of drugs and guns is a problem …
Combining real ballistic smarts with medical knowledge was very unusual 50 years ago. Even now, as we see so many more of these ideas kicked around, there are those that can't grasp facts from fiction. Perhaps its just journalism, but its perhaps a problem with our original perceived idea of what happened. I never thought a second shooter made any sense. I've seen the slow motion tape, and know that the abilities of the Carcano and his shooting abiliy were up to the task. . Having read again a lot of the Lincoln conspiracy, its amazing how much information was gleaned without the help of the internet, and mass communication. They simply put in hundreds of thousands of man hours tracking Booth down.
How lucky we are to have the ability to converse like this. It seems there are more like minded individuals in this world than I originally thought.
Thanks to everyone for their thoughts.
