About this deal

He’d openly flirt with waitresses in family restaurants in a way that would make Chevy Chase look like James Bond.

Over the last few months, I’ve found myself thinking a lot about Robert Anton Wilson, the late author whom I’d be comfortable describing as one of my intellectual heroes. It was in this atmosphere that Kerry and Oswald struck up an acquaintance due to a mutual interest in communist theory and the writings of Karl Marx. I would like to point out that throughout my life I was rather open about having been experimented on by the CIA, 3v3n before any documents relating to such experiments had ever been declassified and Soviets were the main target of brainwashing accusations in those days. When asked how Kerry responded to the disclosure of his homosexuality, Stephens replied: As a good friend would: very tolerant.Thornley had wound up at Arlington, a Washington suburb, and had moved into Shirlington House, a first-class apartment building where he worked as doorman. Although a practicing psychiatrist told him that he was schizophrenic, Thornley refused any type of treatment.

In the days that followed I quarreled with virtually every one of my friends to a greater or lesser extent. However, the Kennedy Assassination--though obviously an important event in the storyline--is only one sub plot of many that appear.If you have more than a passing interest in the works of Robert Anton Wilson, Discordianism, 60s counterculture or, of course the Kennedy assassination then this book is a must-read. They show, he says, how "conspiracy theories are born and bred and in time work themselves into the cosmologies of the paranoid and enlightened alike. More alarmingly, Gorightly recounts allegations that Thornley commited acts of sexual abuse against children.
