    In TOSOS, John Ramsey writes:

    "I stood by Patsy's headstone with a heavy heart, when a lone sparrow emerged from the woods and flew right up to me. It flapped its wings and hovered inches from my chest for what seemed like minutes. I didn't do anything to brush it away; I just stood there. Was it trying to tell me something there in the silence of the cemetery? I thought, wouldn't it be just like the Lord to send a little sparrow to assure me He's taking good care of my girls?"


    I suspect the above is actually a blend of two scenes from a book on Ramsey's nightstand, When Good-bye is Forever, excerpted below:

    "Turning quickly I saw a small bird hovering against the glass. It had not collided with the window but instead was simply fluttering in midair wings sweeping softly against the windowpane. We were all taken aback by the unusual timing of the bird's appearance. The ministers discussed the apparent connection between the comment I had just made about the little bird that Christopher loved and the simultaneous arrival of the real bird at our window...."

    and:


    "As we stood there in silence, we suddenly heard an unusual sound. There was a soft fluttering followed by the appearance of a small sparrow. It flew between us at chest level, quickly disappearing into the darkness. We both thought of the bird at our window the day before the funeral....As we turned to go into the garage to pull out the car, Mairi went first and I followed, about two feet behind her. As if to make sure we understood, the sparrow returned and flew between us again--once more at chest height...."


    In '98 when John Ramsey was asked about When Good-bye is Forever, he was evasive (for whatever reason). He says that he probably never read it...that he probably wasn't reading it at the time of the murder...that he hated the title because he didn't want it to be forever...Patsy might have bought it...Patsy probably didn't buy it...someone gave it to him. He was all over the place about this book.

    But I think he probably did read it. It's a short well-written book by a Navy man and an engineer who was diagnosed with cancer three weeks before his 2yo son was killed by a garbage truck. Formerly irreligious, the man developed deep Christian beliefs after the death of his son. It would really be right up John Ramsey's alley.

    Cool Great Catch....

    Same Sad Sick Spinning Tactics, John. A hovering heaven sent sparrow fits right in there with every Sentence that Spews from this Man's Mouth...disgusting as ever. Just in time for One More December at that.

    Thanks. I think it was Capricorn over on topix who told me about the sparrow incident in TOSOS.

    Hi, everyone. While I’ve been a member at WS I’ve read frequently at FFJ. Thank you for allowing my membership.

    This story of the sparrow tells a lot about JR’s objectives. Having beat the rap for his role in his daughter’s death, he still needs a few measures to make sure that his image is not soiled by that long drawn-out escape from justice. A new book (TOSOS), an “exoneration” and apology from ML, maybe some lawsuits hovering in the background by LW, and the explanations (makes one gag) of his spirit in touch with God. As long as others know how “good” he is, is the important thing. Forensic ‘shrinks’ know that those who can’t process internal shame, or guilt, very easily opt to blame others. **

    Something also illustrated by the story about the sparrow and that is what is required to carry off such a profound level of deceit. It unmasks a pathology of deception buried deep within, a pathology best described by KoldKase in her post regarding CSIEngland hoax. (Post 126, page 11): Appearances are everything. Even if it's just words typed for others to read, words are conveying the reality and they do tell a lot about the author; so "look" the part, act the part, back it up with all the tricks and veils you have at your disposal, and you can hide the truth of who you are and what you are really doing easier than most of us imagine.

    **One last thought about blame. You all probably know that LW (director of the choir refrain of “the DNA exonerates ‘em”) is frustrated with the internet posters who still believe the Rs responsible in JB’s death. LW blames us for not believing in the Rs’ exoneration. His words:
    Now you’ve got not only mainline newspapers that are on the internet but you’ve got just a world of individuals who blog, who post on forums where there’s anonymity allowed. It’s hard to track those individuals down and even when you successfully can identify them it’s very difficult to successfully sue them. Most of them don’t have any assets to compensate you with.

    I have posted my RDI thoughts on WS not to frustrate LW, which is only a side benefit. But only for JB. The more truth the better.

    Excellent post, QFT! We are so glad to have you here at FFJ.


    As I was reading the Lin Wood quote you posted, one sentence stuck out (like John Ramsey's lying lizard tongue):

    "Most of them don’t have any assets to compensate you with."

    First thought - bwaahaahaa, you bottom-feeding, sociopathic, suing gun-for-hire ... you can't get blood from a stone

    Second thought - it's always about money with Lin Wood & the Ramseys; never about truth or justice

    Third thought
    - this is the allegedly smooth-talking lawyer, Lin Wood? I've heard two-year-olds put together better sentences.

    Most of them don't have any assets TO COMPENSATE YOU WITH?

    If Lin Wood hadn't apparently cheated his way through college and actually ATTENDED his English classes, he'd have known you never end a sentence in that way, and he should have said, "Most of them don't have any assets with which to compensate you," although Lin Wood also shouldn't have used the second-person pronoun "you" and should have said, "Most of them don't have any assets with which to compensate anyone."

    Non-grammatical sentence structure is fine for conversational English, but when a person is supposed to be a high-powered lawyer, speaking on record for an interview, it leaves the impression of Lin Wood being nothing but a flap-mouthed hick. I certainly wouldn't hire a lawyer who talked that way.

    Maybe Lin Wood was interviewed after a three-martini lunch. Or maybe his brain is finally being scrambled by all the evil and corruption that has resided there for so long.

    I was hoping you would tell us how you really felt...{{{sigh}}}

    It's probably too late to get justice for JonBenét. Maybe it always was. But knowing where things went wrong is the first step to not going there again. **-- Alan Prendergast-Dec 21, 2006--**

    Welcome to the forum, and great memory you have there, QFT.

    No lawyer ever got a tagline more deserving that Lin Wood: ATTORNEY FOR THE DAMNED.

    John Ramsey knows what happened and what he has done. He can build a six foot thick wall of false image, but it won't change the truth. EVER.

    "University of Colorado Law Professor Paul Campos declared the letter a 'reckless exoneration.' He went on to state, 'Everyone knows that relative immunity from criminal conviction is something money can buy.
    Apparently another thing it can buy is an apology for even being suspected of a crime you probably already would have been convicted of committing if you happened to be poor.'"
