"The font on the memos is Times New Roman"<br><br>Times New Roman designed in 1931. Widely used commercially. Microsoft uses their TT adaptive version. Why is this conclusive evidence? <br><br>I think I'll wait for the experts to weigh in. A whole lot of info flying around without authenticity. <br><br>Hey.... what if Rove is behind the half-backed forgery of the memos and provided them to CBS so that CBS could take the hit! He got the freepers going and now it's THE story. The Bush AWOL story is kaput. That BASTARD!!!!!!!<br><br><br><br>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> Sure, completely plausable that either these were standard issue for typing one-page memos at national guard bases or the guy who writes a memo <p><hr></blockquote><p> I worked in government labs in the late 70's. Government issue was the IBM Selectric. The secretary always had one bolted to her desk. But the boss always had the latest IBM typewriter which did all amazing things. All my bosses did. Since this guy was a memo freak writing memos to file or self and he was up the food chain a bit maybe he was just like my bosses. <br><br>I work in a government lab today. Or at least it is government money. My standard institute build is a crappy wintel box. But I have a liquid cooled dual processor G5 under my desk.

It's not the Selectric it's the EXECUTIVE that even you linked to, there is a difference!

Look you have to find a font from a 1972 era typewriter that used as a standard<br>1) A closed top 4 without a foot<br>2) A curly apostrophy<br>3) A proprotional font<br>4) Had the ability to not only superscript but reduce the size of the font during the superscript.<br><br>And was no so damned expensive that Joe Military was using them to one-off memos for personel files.<br><br>Dean Davis<br><br>-----<br>"I think it was the right decision to disarm Saddam Hussein.

The Rove theory is interestesting and while I'm not one for the black helicopter theories this one actually has a slim chance. But, it's a HUGE gamble against a nothing story. If this was somehow linked back to Rove or his like then that would be a BIG story.<br><br>Of course now that makes me think this is how this will be spun, true or not.<br><br>Dean Davis<br><br>-----<br>"I think it was the right decision to disarm Saddam Hussein.

the weirdest thing is NO News agency is even reporting this. so a blogger says it's fake, and no one has picked up on the story?<br><br>even FoxNews isnt reporting it, instead they have "Small Bounce for Bush" and "Zawahri Speaks on New Tape"<br><br>You cant polish a Turd.
