Great job, Howlin'!
See my post above. TankerKC mentions it first, then Buckhead.
Thanks for those links. You made some history today and are senior officers in the new media revolution. George Washington would be proud.
Howlin, every single one of these memos to file is in a proportionally spaced font, probably Palatino or Times New Roman.
In 1972 people used typewriters for this sort of thing, and typewriters used monospaced fonts.
The use of proportionally spaced fonts did not come into common use for office memos until the introduction of laser printers, word processing software, and personal computers. They were not widespread until the mid to late 90's. Before then, you needed typesetting equipment, and that wasn't used for personal memos to file. Even the Wang systems that were dominant in the mid 80's used monospaced fonts.
I am saying these documents are forgeries, run through a copier for 15 generations to make them look old.
This should be pursued aggressively.

I nominate Buckhead (Post 47) for Freeper of the Year!
When will the liberal media realize that they can help the most just by reporting these stories straight-up? When they sit on the stories they only cause the stories to gather stream and push their dear Kerry further out of the news. The best thing the liberal media could do, if they really want to help Kerry, is just report the news instead of trying to manage it. They think they are helping Kerry, but they aren't.
What a day!
The day the old media dinosaur was smashed by the incoming new media meteor!
I think that you and Buckhead deserve some kind of prize/honor!
There are many, many reasons why this is not a 1972-3 doc. Most of them should be discussed in court.
"I hope CBS can get sued."
Maybe we can hit 'em with a class action lawsuit alleging fraud.
I hadn't had this much fun since the hogs ate my baby brother!
It is something to behold. The collective knowledge at FR is pretty astounding.
Podheretz is right, populism kicked entrenched, Leftwing powers a$$ today.
Seems like you should get a bump on this heh.
Do you think that now John O'Neill might get a phone call from Katie or Matt or Tom?
