Sherlock Holmes and the Texas Air National Guard Memos 

I just started reading a book by Larry Millett called, "Sherlock Holmes and the Red Demon." Near the beginning, the client shows Holmes some threatening letters that had been sent to him. Even Watson notices that a number of words are misspelled in the documents. However, Holmes notes that the misspellings are inconsistent and that the writer has impeccable grammar and punctuation. The great detective realizes that the writer is a clever sort who is attempting to fool the recipient into thinking that he is uneducated.
Sneaky trick, eh?
CBS’ 60 Minutes recently ran a report revealing memos that were allegedly written by Lt. Col. Jerry Killian, Bush's commander in the 111th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at the former Ellington Air Force Base.
Now, Killian’s son claims that the memos are fakes. He points out facts about the type of font used and the way the memos display superscript. Very few typewriters, back in the 1970s, could create that type of document. It appears that the memos were written on a word processor.
Sneaky trick, eh?
I think the republicans created the memos and then leaked them! Now they can claim that they’re obvious forgeries. They'll also try to make Kerry look bad by convincing naïve Americans that there’s some connection.
Yeah... right.

Just like Saddam's connection to Al Qaeda!
