There are at least TWELVE FACTS which together combine to show that Dr. Ivins almost certainly manipulated a child into writing the anthrax letters and addressing the anthrax envelopes:
Fact #1. Between the writing of the Brokaw letter and the addressing of the Brokaw envelope, the writer seems to have learned the correct way to draw the letter R (and other characters of the alphabet).
Fact #2. Adults do not generally learn the correct way to draw letters of the alphabet between writing a letter and addressing an envelope.
Fact #3. Children are generally taught the correct way to draw letters of the alphabet in the first weeks of first grade.
Fact #4. The writing on the media letter and envelopes was roughly twice the size of the writing on the senate letter and envelopes.
Fact #5. Adults go not generally change the size of their handwriting.
Fact #6. Children are generally taught to write smaller in the first weeks of first grade.
Fact #7. The media letter did NOT use punctuation, while the senate letter mailed three weeks later DID use punctuation.
Fact #8. Adults generally write from habit and do not switch from not using punctuation to using punctuation.
Fact #9. Children are taught about punctuation in the first weeks of first grade.
Fact #10. The anthrax letters were sent out at about the same time as children were beginning the first weeks of first grade (September & October 2001).
Fact #11. Adults who attempt to disguise their handwriting generally do so by (A) writing with their "wrong" hand, (B) writing upside down, or (C) copying someone else's handwriting.
Fact #12. None of the above methods of disguising one's handwriting would result in a change in how characters of the alphabet are drawn, a change in writing size OR a change in the use of punctuation. Differences generally result from fluctuations between the disguised style they are attempting to use and the habitual style they regularly use.
I challenge anyone to explain how these TWELVE facts are not facts. If they cannot do that, I challenge anyone to provide ADDITIONAL facts which prove that those 12 facts are misleading and that an adult actually DID write the letters.
These facts were true when it was not yet known who sent the anthrax letters. The facts predicted that the anthrax killer would have access to a child just starting first grade. That was many years before it was known that Ivins' wife ran a day care center in their home. (There are other facts which also support the above facts and evidence, but for discussion purposes, the above facts should be sufficient.
