Is this merely some sort of obsession with John Armstrong's work or is it actually a way to promote your own blog?

Tracy: As you probably know, Norman Mailer interviewed numerous people when he was in Minsk working on his book who said Oswald spoke - or tried to - Russian with them.

The Intourist guide assigned to Oswald - under KGB direction - was  Rimma Semenova Shirakova. She described seeing Oswald in the hospital after the attempted suicide. I believe she is still alive. This is from "Oswald's Tale."

I made some notes a couple years ago of some things from Armstrong's book and that is what inspired these "howlers." I am working on a new article series that is unrelated to Armstrong so I am branching out you could say.
