Let's say, for argument's sake, half a minute...

Who waits at a bus stop for 30 seconds?  If you don't see a bus coming you're not going to see one 30 seconds later either.

But whatever it takes.

Too bad Burroughs said that Oswald slipped into the Texas Theater between 1:00 and 1:07.

Burroughs was an idiot so save that red herring for another thread.
Who waits for 30 secs then leaves? A man in a hurry who is concerned that his address might already be known to the FBI through the rooming house phone number.

You can't say it was two minutes though. It could have been seconds. Who knows.

Why can't I say that? We're all guessing here.....

Besides, you asked the question... if you wanted a specific answer, you should have said so.

FWIW, I seriously doubt that anybody would decide to take the bus and then only wait a few seconds for one to arrive.

Flawed logic! It's hardly unlikely that such a man would ever decide to wait at a bus stop so close to the roominghouse in the first place.

I asked incase anyone knew but clearly they don't. Beyond that it is of course a guess. Saying 'you can't say ....' is a turn of phrase. You are entitled to a guess of course.

I don't think we can make a judgement about what someone in Oswald's situation would do based on our own experiences. Who knows what was going through his head.

So reduce his waiting time to 15 secs. Once he realised he was exposed like a shag on a rock outside the rooming house he knew he needed to get out of that area altogether. He had three choices really;
1. go back inside and wait to be arrested
2. continue to wait for a bus with the risk of a patrol car racing toward him or
3. hot foot it out of the area until he could find a place to hid then form a plan.

Agreed... now, how do we explain this to the LNs?

I don't think it is exclusive of LNers.

I think it's the CTs that need to take his state of mind into account. I'm encouraged to see that you at least are aware of what it might mean regarding his decision making.


Anyway, I owe I owe so off to work I go

You missed all the actions below in the 90s, and we know he was not hurry through the TSBD from Mrs Reid, someone who can remember how full a coke was, would remember if he was scurrying or moving quickly.

Mr. DULLES. Was he moving fast?
Mrs. REID. No; because he was moving at a very slow pace, I never did see him moving fast at any time.
Mr. BELIN. He was moving just at his normal walk?
Mrs. REID. Yes.

then walks across the 1st floor in no hurry, goes down a flight of stairs, (probably) points out the phone to a journalist, reportedly gets seen by Campbell, retreives his jacket  and then pushes past the crowd at the front of the building (filled with people like BWF, who know him),
