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.
After this post, the only clock ticking on CBS was the one counting down the seconds left in Dan Rather and Mary Mape's careers
THE catalyst that paved the way to victory was uncovering the layers of filth that was the Rather/Mapes sinister plot .... mission-oriented FReeping at its very best. Kudos to you all and many many thanks!!!
