Fair enough. He said nothing like this ever happened to him,
anyone he knew, or anyone he ever heard of, and he doubted that
it ever happened to anyone. He was hassled by govt types over
the Powers story, but he believed that the public had a right to
know, so he ran it anyway. No one attempted to confiscate his
photos or tapes (audio in those days) and film.

Did your father run the stories anyway?

Neil Morris is not a professional photo analyst. I'm sure he
will agree with that statement. I am not putting him down when I
say he has neither the knowledge nor equipment to do this job

Neil and I have been in touch, and he shows no signs of being
offended by my comments or approach.

I have forwarded the CD Stan sent me to a professional photo
analyst for a looksee. He doubted he could do anything with
someone else's scans, but agreed to take a look when he has
time. If he gets interested enough, he may try to arrange to
scan the negatives himself.

Please approach on bended knee and address me properly as Sire
when you say stuff like that!!

Technical opinions are only valid when backed by technical
_knowledge_ to support them.

OK, guess I'll have to learn to live with that.
