My thoughts, too. The story indicated that the son needed cash and the best taker he had was Costner for $100 a day. Yikes! Of course his father knew who killed Kennedy- that's why he was worth three figures a day for info! Otherwise, the son would have hopped off the gravy train. I chuckled at the "murder of Che" line and reminded myself that it was in Rolling Stoned. Quite a story- I do hope they got around to confirming it and asked Hunt if it was accurate. Oops- he's dead. I do hope the son had the foresight to have the old guy draw a map to Jimmy Hoffa's body as well.
Years ago I read "High Treason" and a number of those other conspiracy books and took seriously the idea that because there was no way a "magic bullet" could pass through Kennedy's neck, stop in midair, move upward and then enter Connolly from the back, that there must have been a second gunman.
However, I later learned that the authors of those books and other conspiracy theorists misrepresented the relative positions of the two men - because Connolly was seated in a fold-out jump seat and Kennedy was on the back bench-style seat of the limo, Connolly was NOT level with Kennedy but was seated much LOWER.
In fact, when the relative position of the two men given the ACTUAL HEIGHT of the two seats they were sitting in is taken into account, the bullet could go nowhere else but from Kennedy's neck into Connolly's back and then into Connolly's wrist.
So there was no "second gunman." It was all based on a false representation to sell books.
Oliver Stone repeated the misrepresentation in his movie "JFK" in the famous scene where he had Costner arrange two chairs on the floor, one behind the other, to demonstrate the "magic bullet" theory. The chairs are at the same height, which was not true of the two seats in the limo.
There was a good documentary within the last 2-3 yrs which used computerized three-dimensional modeling to recreate at each moment in time the exact positions of the two men in their seats in the limo and the line of sight from the book depository window, synchronized with the Zapruder film and sound recordings of the gunshots, and demonstrated beyond any doubt that the shots from the book depository window were the only ones to strike the limo and its occupants.
