Heymom, that photo had to have been selected intentionally! The tongue came out when he mentioned losing his life savings and also when the New Mrs. JR walked onto the stage. (Some kind of anxiety?) On a related topic mentioned on this thread, I was thinking about Boespâ€™s and your questions about why JR spoke now. Boyles did a brief interview with Pendergast this past Monday and asked the same question, why now? I considered a couple of reasons he did the story. 1) Walters reached out to him, and we know JR prefers, as Pendergast puts it, the â€œwhiffle ballâ€ questions. Iâ€™m guessing he may have received a list of the subjects to be covered. The Walters interview would be a cake walk and would give him another opportunity to advance his story, maybe make a little money for providing those movie clips of BR, though I didnâ€™t perceive much defense of BR. 2) JR is a competitive man (beating out a couple of other contenders for the presidency of Access Graphics, racing sailboats). Perhaps he felt that he ought to come out again to substantiate the story line they had promoted. Heâ€™d likely been counting on Woodwardâ€™s book being released to shield the family after Kolarâ€™s book and the release of the True Bills. Problem with Woodwardâ€™s book . . .well, you know. Though I chose to not subject myself to the rehash of the old interview, I was interested in his gestures and the manner in which he replied during the new dialog with Walters. One part which gave me a stomach turning jolt was this - Walters attempted to create a poignant moment by asking: When you see a six year old playing in the park . .do you. . .JR interrupts, and rushes into (and out of) an explanation: Yeah . .inaudible .yeah . . .a little bit, if theyâ€™re a little girl with blonde hair . . . . A little bit? It was that exchange between Walters and JR which made me think that he doesnâ€™t only need a ghost writer for authoring a book. He needs a ghost speaker. I digress. ____________ I recall an interesting Ted Talks presentation by Pamela Meyers who wrote Liespotting. She said her purpose was not to teach people to come to a conclusion of lying when they see someoneâ€™s eyebrow twitch as in a â€˜gotcha moment.â€™ It was to teach folks how to recognize in themselves what leads them to believe a liar. In this case, it seems as though many just need to believe the R storyline that they were just a normal, nice Christian family. And this belief was confirmed by MLâ€™s â€˜exoneration.â€™ On this topic of what leads some to believe what the Rs and Smit said about the Intruder, I think of a story Meyers told at Ted Talks. Now you might remember Koko. Does anybody remember Koko the gorilla who was taught sign language? Koko was taught to communicate via sign language. Here's Koko with her kitten. It's her cute little, fluffy pet kitten. Koko once blamed her pet kitten for ripping a sink out of the wall. Koko thinks it will fly to blame the kitten for ripping out a sink. But of course it didnâ€™t work. JMHO, for anyone who honestly studies the case, the Intruder theory is as outlandish as Kokoâ€™s blame of the sink and wall damage on a kitten. Sadly for justice for JonBenÃ©t, it worked.
