Saying that you missed nothing is like saying that a wax apple is the same as a real one. That’s what you missed. You are also forgetting WHEN you said what you did.
You have to remember that this whole thing began with Miss Marple’s observations that the transcript of Lange and Vannatter’s interview with O.J. included two damning words that appeared to be edited in, and their version of the interview differed from Fuhrman’s. We were talking about subtle means of verbal deception.
I gave you this challenge: …I hope you noticed how I edited your comments (unnecessarily). If you figure out why I did it and what real information got lost in the translation, a bright light should go off in your head. I know you can do it. I don’t know if you will. That’s the point. If you answer too quickly or underestimate my motives you will get it wrong (that’s a hint). If you want to ignore this bit, that’s okay, too. I just thought that you would find it interesting in the context of what we’ve been discussing and you might want to give it a shot. --Jasper
Prien: “Okay, you cleaned up my typos, and hid from the world my terrible typing skills.”
Jasper: “I warned you that if you answered too quickly you would get it wrong. That’s what you did. You got it wrong.”
Rovaan: “I suspect you used the distraction of cleaning up the spelling errors to divert from having dropped Prien's original point that what Fuhrman had in his book was NOT the "transcript". That sentence was left out and the subsequent discussions ended up to be about the "transcript" as if it really was a transcript. Am I close?”
Rose was dead on. Fixing the typos was A DISTRACTION. You went for it because you didn’t take the time to go back and check MY MESSAGE before you posted your reply.
You went to elaborate lengths to prove that you did go back and check – to see what I changed, not what I hid (you had already made up your mind about that). Kari thought that I might have changed some commas to change the meaning, something we had talked about before. You saw that I didn’t, but you got so tangled up in looking for “THE answer” to my “silly exercise,” that it never occurred to you that there was more than one correct answer. Only two wrong answers really mattered and you picked both of them. Although Kari got the part about the comma wrong (trivial point) she got the subtle manipulation part right (major point) and the connection to Fuhrman’s whole act.
You keep saying that the key to the frame-up was Spangler’s order to Phillips not to call the coroner, without addressing the facts that Phillips was the only one who departed from the normal routine in that regard and he was officially off the case. You also insist that Phillips was the ranking investigator without checking the transcripts for the word games that Marcia and Phillips played with the word “investigator” until Bailey backed Fuhrman into a corner. There is more than one right answer and they are hidden. --Jasper
