Vanity Fair

change of plans…in Chicago it snows at the end of March…..

Lake effect…beautiful snow…. haven’t experienced it in 14 years…..

so decided to share an article written in the April issue of Vanity Fair magazine…

my airplane read….used to be a subscriber…..now just a fair weather /in the airport purchaser…

interesting article….

The Claim To Camelot…by David Friend… who broke the “Deep Throat” story….

Jack Worthington a Texas- born financier who believed he was the son of JFK….after an encounter with his mother who informed him he was not the son of the man who he thought was his father….

was it a legit story….

It’s a read that has twists and turns and characters that have connections to many presidents and those that appeared briefly as historical footnotes….that is so much more than 6 degrees of separation…the Kevin Bacon game…

The attorney that contacts the magazine….Douglas Caddy…the original lawyer for the Watergate burglars…

The mother…a member of a family intertwined with LBJ politically …who could have had trysts with the president…

The man who would be the president’s illegitimate son has the facial features to make it seem a possibility…

The attorney has more connections…later found by the reporter….he had once been a lawyer in the Nixon White House…. and represented a man who accused LBJ of conspiracy to commit murder….

brought along to a meeting with the reporter, attorney, the subject of the story…a woman…who turns out to be the former wife of President Bush’s brother Neil…Sharon Bush….

A side story… Sharon Bush and husband were to have a dinner party at their home in 1981…a guest was to have been Scott Hinkley…brother of Reagan’s would be assassin…the dinner was canceled due to the infamous shooting taking place the night before it was scheduled…..

The attorney went to Georgetown and was involved in the Goldwater- Buckley…Young American’s for Freedom… then went on to Nixon….having Howard Hunt call him during Watergate….and represented the accused men who broke in….wrote several books…..one about political clout of organized labor…

as a writer he sought advice from Lucienne Goldberg…who was the the literary agent…now of Lucianne.com…who advised Linda Tripp to tape Monica Lewinsky…

He did represent a man who accused LBJ of murder….JFK’s murder….

another side story a longtime attorney at LBJ’s Texas law firm wrote a book in 2004 claiming LBJ killed JFK…..was Barr McClellen…father of Scott McClellen…President Bush’s former press secretary….

In this book…McClellen says payoffs happened at a ranch ….same ranch that years later Vice President Cheney shot his friend duck hunting at….the photographer assigned to Cheney…David Boher…son of Judith Exner….a mistress of JFK….

so what was the end of all this intrigue….no match…. after searching for DNA on Ebay…and hitting dead ends….finally using hair that was supplied by a man who claims to have the largest collection of hair from historical figures….such as Napoleon,Geranomo…..and more to clone in the future…..

another strange aside…the evening before…I watched Hoax on cable…Richard Gere movie about Clifford Irving and his fraudulent book about Howard Hughs….also mentioned by the reporter in the article….

LBTS  has  its own 6 degrees of separation…..Old Guard….New Guard…supporters…..former supporters…. former friends…. former employees…. former members of organizations…..felons……and even murder…..just no illegitimate sons of presidents….at least none we know of…..
