Joan Mellen's Ridiculous Advice to a Space Alien


Baltimore Sun, June 28, 1998.


Yup, the one book that Joan Mellen would recommend is Jim Garrison's On the Trail of the Assassins.


I'd have no problem if Joan Mellen's advice would be limited to just space aliens. Unfortunately, she recommends books to humans too.


"Still not content, Garrison sat down at his typewriter and concocted the biggest lie of all, his book, "On the Trail of the Assassins," once again defaming Clay Shaw. To give the devil his due, the book was well written, a fast-moving, exciting piece of cold war spy genre fiction, and it produced a lot of money for the DA in book sales, and a movie contract.
Oliver Stone, as gullible as they get in La-La Land, swallowed Garrison's tale hook, line and sinker, and spent millions regurgitating it on film. With "JFK," Stone became another False Witness, distorting history and justifying his film on the basis of artistic license, giving Garrison the image of a God-fearing family man and caped crusader and using the same smear tactics as Garrison to destroy the image of an innocent man no longer able to defend himself."

Poorest example of science fiction writing Joan, need to find a daytime job:) Writing shit like this ain't going to pay your rent, unless you can get the insurgents from January 6th not imprisoned for open treason as customers:) The subject angles you pick next to your silly ass assumptions fall under the category of food for gullible folks from red state lala land:) Notice you avoided the only real intrigue in this whole shadow murder of a sitting president in broad daylight, by the CIA/Mafia connection? You know the one officially formed to supposedly assassinate Castro? Was 17 on first permanent party assignment on Offutt AFB [SAC] soon as the president was murdered we moved to equivalence of DEFCO…

I never took seriously the Mac Wallace allegations. Did you?

I did and do, though I don't think he was necessarily on the sixth floor at 12.30 on 22 November 1963.

I take it then that, if her opinions are unreliable, you don't take her attempt to debunk the Mac Wallace fingerprint very seriously.
