Updated: Oct 11, 2021
M.S. Arnoni was the editor of The Minority of One, a small, independent left-wing journal that was published monthly in the 1960s. The JFK assassination was an important topic in the journal and Sylvia Meagher was a regular contributor. Both Arnoni and Meagher took a dim view of Jim Garrison, and here is an unsigned article from the October 1967 issue that was written by Arnoni:
Jim Garrison sent a reply to Arnoni:
Garrison refers to the Ruby code - here is a blog post about Jim Garrison, the Cryptologist.
Sylvia Meagher wrote Arnoni a letter in response:
