First, my local newspaper, The Racine Journal-Times, printed an article about me and my book. Click HERE to read it.
Secondly, I finished converting the print version of my book "A Crime Unlike Any Other: What the Facts Say About Dr. Bruce Edwards Ivins and the Anthrax Attacks of 2001" into a Kindle version. It's now for sale on Amazon.com. Just click HERE.
The Racine Journal Times' article is followed by three comments from readers. The first person commenting, "FOR5DOLLAR," wrote:
"This is hilarious, this is the same Ed Lake that thrives on lies, innuendo, unfounded accusations, in a fairy tale form. I would not buy this book for any reason. Ed Lake does not have a clue as to who sent the anthrax in 2001, it was not Bruce Ivins. "The scientific road to nowhere" that is where Ed Lake has been, driving his psychotic dream of becoming a writer only to find himself sitting on a pile of scrap paper."
"FOR5DOLLAR" then posted another comment just telling people not to buy the book.
Then "BigRed" wrote a comment that says,
"If someone is going to commit a serious crime, the perp (who Mr. Lake urges was Dr. Ivins) has no reason to involve a young child who could tell the secret. Mr. Lake should have checked his facts. There in fact was no first grader in Dr. Ivins' home as Ed imagined."
In reality, of course, the facts say that Ivins used a child to write the anthrax letters. Here's a video where I list 12 facts which appear to prove that the letters were written by a first grader:
If it's a "fact" that there "was no first grader in Dr. Ivins' home," then the facts say Ivins found a first grader somewhere else. The handwriting facts remain the same. And they say a child wrote the letters.
However, when "BigRed" claims it's a "fact" that there was "no first grader in Dr. Ivins' home," he's saying he doesn't have any evidence of it. He asked people, and they said no. And, he believes what he was told -- because he has a theory of his own. He evidently believes a Muslim terrorist who couldn't write English very well wrote the letters and addressed the envelopes, and, by pure happenstance, the terrorist's handwriting went through the exact same changes as a child's handwriting would be going through in August, September and October of 2001 as he begins the first weeks and months of first grade.
Saying you don't believe a child wrote the letter or that others don't believe it doesn't change the facts. The only way anyone can prove that a child did NOT write the letters is to provide more and better facts which conclusively and undeniably show that it was done by someone else, facts which also fully explain why it appears to be a child's handwriting.
All I've seen are arguments that people don't believe it. Claims that there was no child in Ivins' home at that time do not change the facts. Claims that Ivins could have written the letters himself and tried to make them look like they were written by a child just starting first grade doesn't change the facts. Claims that if Ivins wrote using his "wrong hand," the results could look just like what's on the letters doesn't change the facts. Claims that a Muslim terrorist would write just like a child just starting first grade at that point in time doesn't change the facts.
Until more and better undeniable facts can be found that solidly prove otherwise, the facts say that a child just starting first grade wrote the anthrax letters.
