Wow, thatís very interesting Bill! Was it addressed to his mother? What was your impression of Ruth?

The envelope I held was for a letter addressed to his brother, Robert.

Ruth was very sweet.  She is aware of the silly theories concerning her but she really doesn't seem to be concerned about them.  Incidentally, when we were about to go inside the house in Irving (they closed it off just for us), Max Good was there waiting.  This was back in 2019 and he was still in the process of making his documentary.  By this time, he had already interviewed her in California.  He asked her if he could go inside with us to film her inside (more footage for his doc) and she told him No.

While being a part of a couple guys who were personally escorting Ruth Paine around Dallas for a 3 day weekend back in September of 2019 (while she was in town to attend the premiere of "Truth Is The Only Client" at the Texas Theater), I got to hold in my hands an envelope which, in 1963, contained one of the letters Oswald wrote home.

This is Oswald's own handwriting and most likely contained his DNA.

I know I'm boasting a little bit but I don't mean it to come across that way.  I just figured some members here would find this kind of neat.

Envelope from one of the letters Oswald sent home from Minsk...


With Ruth inside the house in Irving (9/21/19)...


Lunch with Ruth at the Cheesecake Factory before heading over to the premiere (9/22/19)...


That's amazing stuff.  Be careful, though.  According to CTers, Paine was a mastermind behind the assassination.  She might put you under some type of Manchurian candidate mind control.  LOL.  I would really love some of these jokers to be put in a room with Paine and let her tear them a new one.

I really wished she would have sued some of these people for defamation. She would go under oath and they would have discovery - that's what they want, correct? - but they too would have to go under oath and repeat their claims and also be subjected to discovery. Imagine these silly asses under oath? Knowing they could be charged with perjury? You think they'd repeat their claims made on the internet? Or in their books?

Let's see what happens.

She said that she thinks Oliver Stone changed her name (to "Janet") for the movie out of fear of a lawsuit. That she was still a private figure and didn't have to meet that incredibly high standard that a public figure has to in order to prove they were libeled. She said that she was never contacted by Stone or any of his people but that the actress who played her did call her with a few questions.

Exactly.  She's a strong person, very intelligent.  She can definitely defend herself all on her own.  If she's up to it and can make the trip, it's looking like we'll be with her in Dallas for the 60th.  We'll see.

Fun tidbit... When we were going through the house in Irving with her, she told us a story about Lee fixing the back screen door one Saturday afternoon.  Moments later, she wanted to go out and see the back yard.  Wouldn't you know it?  The damn screen door was stuck and it took me about a minute and half to fix it so it could be opened.

Most of these clowns would wilt under the pressure of having to say to her face what they say about her online.

Of all the folks in this case, I feel the worst for her.  Trying to do a good deed and getting caught up in something like this must be unreal.  The target of endless conspiracy kooks who think she was involved in the frame up of a presidential assassin.  That must be surreal.  Even Marina who had ample cause to be grateful to her for providing for her family immediately turned on her.  I would love to see some of the nuts here have to engage the real person instead of whatever fictionalized character they have concocted as part of their conspiracy fantasy.

I agree.  Same with Tippit's two remaining children.  It's all a game to the goofballs who accuse J.D. of being involved somehow and how he was supposed to silence Oswald.  They don't stop to think that we're talking about real people.  I've spent about a half hour with Brenda (J.D.'s daughter) and she pulled out her phone showing me old pics of her with her father.  She was very nice and was eager to show me the pics.  This is a real woman.  That was her father.  It's a shame that she's even aware that some dumb asses out there say such things about her Dad; a police officer who died in the line of duty.
