I am hearing rumours that certain researchers, one of whom is no
stranger to this List, are on the brink of publishing an
analysis which they believe is proof of a hoax. I have it on the
authority of a third party - a 'usually reliable source' - that
cunning digital enhancement has revealed the presence of a
string or wire support. Since several people over the years have
tried to find such a thing, without success, it will be
interesting to see what the new claim amounts to.
