The Girl on the Stairs by Barry ErnestI was generating a few conflicting thoughts in my mind whilst reading this book. Here is another Kennedy conspiracy exposition story. Another college kid troubled by the slaying of a president, and the doubts raised by another presidents commission report. Nothing wrong with that as David Lifton and others have shown. What posed problems for me was the gestatory nature Barry Ernest has brought with his The Girl on the Stairs-My search for a missing witness to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Described on the book cover as having a background as an investigative journalist, Mr Ernest has taken 35 years to track down his subject and over forty years to bring this project to publication in 2010.
Im an Englishman who remembers where he was etc the day JFK was shot. Almost fifty years on and the subject is still fascinating and perplexing. My book shelf on the subject continues to grow.
If the reader is a critic or confirmed in LHOs guilt, there is no denying that the facts in this crime of the century are seen through a glass darkly. It was sloppy and careless back in November 63 and that legacy remains, and without doubt the cause of the ever growing and steady supply of books on the big event in Dallas five decades back.
Ernests search for his missing witness, Victoria Adams, an office worker in the Texas School Book building on that fateful day meanders through the years. A journey that brings him into contact with paranoid researchers and paranoid witnesses. He links research with Harold Weisberg, Penn Jones, Vincent Salandria and even David Lifton. He interviews witnesses like Sam Holland and Roger Craig. Perhaps its just my own automatic scepticism in weighing information both for and against, but by the time this book is published, most of these people are dead. Victoria Adams herself passed away in 2007. Also much of the detective work has been covered before. There is the odd piece of information that raised my eyebrows, such as the testimony from one Mrs Higgins who was positive the Tippit murder happened at precisely 1:06. No doubt she is now dead.
To sum up...Victoria Adams provided testimony to the Warren Commission, that she was on the only set of stairs in the T.S.B.D. bldg as soon as the gun shots had finished, proving that LHO could not have travelled from the 6th floor snipers nest to the 2nd floor lunch room, where he was seen by Truly and Baker. There are 370 pages, 586 notes and over forty years of research to expose the fabricated evidence and the agenda set against the lone nut assassin.
Members of the jury, have you reached your decision in this case?
Tarot is Dangerous
The danger of tarot is not that it contacts evil spirits, not that it shows your imminent doom in the Death card, and not that it attracts the curses of the dead upon you, but something far more common and even worse than any curse — the danger of laziness. We know that generally, half of people think that tarot is negative in some way. However, the reason they give is not because of the aforementioned idiocies but actually for a very good reason. They know, as some tarot enthusiasts online may seem to be forgetting, exactly why the tarot is dangerous. It aimed to survey public attitudes to subjects such as astrology, tarot, and psychic phenomena and its results were used to establish all regulation on the broadcasting of such subjects in the UK.

Tarot Cards: What Are They? Tarot cards, sometimes called "the book of divination of the gypsies," are known traditionally as a deck of 78 cards with various pictures on them. They have been used for hundreds of years to reveal hidden truths about and foresee the future of the person receiving the card reading. Tarot card decks come in many varieties-one online tarot card encyclopedia lists 70 major varieties of tarot cards ranging from "Tarot of the Cat People" to "Halloween Tarot" to "Dali Universal Tarot" designed by the famous artist, Salvador Dali. There is much speculation over the origin of tarot cards. Did they really originate with the gypsies, or did they come from medieval Europe? Others have maintained that tarot cards came from China or ancient Egypt.
Origin of the Tarot Tarot cards were originally developed in the 15th century, merely as a deck of playing cards. Various non-occultic card games were played throughout Europe with the picture cards. There have been numerous designs for tarot card decks, though most decks have retained the same four traditional tarot suites. Decks have ranged from 15 to 78 cards. Around the end of the 18th century, tarot cards began to be used as a form of divination, or telling the future.
Firstly, I would like to point out that Tarot cards are made in a factory using coloured This is really where my main concern is regarding Tarot being dangerous.
