Should be Ian's every year
- period. End of sentence.
Here are the reasons:
Let's consider the two Georges.
George Noory? 'Nuff said.
George Knapp? First rate investigative reporter. No question. However, this sort of topic isn't his personal pet, and I'd miss the passion. Besides - Knapp himself praised Punnett's handling of the show.
So, WHY IAN?
Because he loves unsolved mysteries, and his pleasure in the topic translates to enjoyment for the listener.
Because he has a particular place in his mind and heart for conspiracy theories that actually have a potential for being unraveled.
Because he approaches this topic with the kind of sincerity and commitment that Art Bell approaches the topic of evidence for life after death.
Because he scooped the E. Howard Hunt
deathbed confession story- which was then picked up by The Rolling Stone.
You may be a grassy knoll person. You may be a single shooter person. The fact is that there are commissions OTHER than Warren, just as official and just as thorough, that came to the "conspiracy" conclusion. CIA - related people other than Hunt have "confessed." AND - there are documents which, though the US Supreme Court has said they should be released, are still sealed.
Therefore, questions remain, wherever the kill shot came from.
Last, I'll tell you that I asked Ian myself (he was doing the Tuesday chat at c2c) if he planned to do the JFK show again. He said yes, when November 22nd next fell on a Saturday. BOOOOO!!! HIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
I'm sending email to all the powers that be related to c2c -and I hope you will too.
11/22 should ALWAYS
be Ian. (There is no other date I feel this way about. None
, in fact I'd rather he DID NOT do Halloween or New Year. He says himself it's not his thing.)
