53. I have a low post count.
I am a person who sees the suicide conclusion as a valid one. Is that a point you were trying to make to me? Why not just ask me directly?

Do "longtime DUers" have some sort of inside access to information in strange death cases in Kentucky? From what I've seen in this world, there are all sorts of places where one might get news and information if one wishes to look around. That's a very funny statement for you to have made - the implication being that "longtime DUers" are somehow more informed and, therefore, more credible, even though their cries of "BULLSHIT!" are sometimes all they can offer in the way of an opinion.

I've lurked here for a long time. My wife posted here for a long time, but quit when, as she put it, "The place just got too stupid and boring." I decided to sign up and check it out. As to your assertion about the superior knowledge of "longtime DUers," I recall a time when Patrick Fitzgerald was closing down his investigation of the Valerie Plame matter, and there was a huge outcry here among "longtime DUers" who chose to believe the absolutely baseless and absurd claims of Jason Leopold, who claimed Karl Rove had been given something like "twenty-four business hours" to clean up his personal affairs, that Rove had been "secretly indicted," that a leading D.C. law firm had been placed in some sort of FBI lockdown for some reason that made no sense.

And all of that was, in the parlance of a "longtime DUer," "BULLSHIT!"

So, it's best to keep an open mind, and to be direct when you feel the need to cast aspersions about the intelligence of someone with a low post count. Especially when a lot of those "longtime DUers" haven't any kind of valid contradictory evidence about the Sparkman matter except for their bias about that part of Kentucky and a firm, if unbalanced belief, that a variety of local, state, and Federal law enforcement agencies would enter into a vast and intricate conspiracy for reasons that have not yet been suitably or intelligently explained.

If you weren't referring to me, my apologies, and I'll let the other person with the low post count deal with you on his or her own time,
