Thanks for the references, Guiliano,

When one reads any script other than Sheaffer's one sees a few
facts thrown in whereas  Sheaffers is an all out attack against
Kean and George Michael personally. He disproves nothing.

Sheaffer's laughable and amateurish attempt at a 'solve' with
Nickel on the Exeter Incident is a prime example of solve by
decree rather than the use of any facts. What I've just read as
a 'rebuttle' by Sheaffer to George Michael's piece is simply
that - an attack rather than any refutation of fact.

Looks like Shaeffer is bucking for the slot left empty by Phil
Klass.
