A puzzle solved…Gary Shaw misquotes Penn Jones…

In Gary Shaw’s classic COVER-UP there is a statement that has puzzled me over the years.  On page 77 of the 1992 edition, he says, ‘Within 48 hours of the shots in Dealey Plaza the Kennedy death car was shipped to the Ford Motor Company in Detroit and completely destroyed, as far as evidence is concerned.’ His footnote, references Penn Jones’ Forgive My Grief III, p. 2.  But on FMG, p 2, much to my surprise, I find that it says nothing about ’48 hours’.

This is the movie that was shown before the Zapruder at the Charles Theatre in NYC in November, 1964. It is b+W. There was a brief pause at the end, and then the Zapruder film rolled, silently on the ‘big’ (foreign theater-sized) screen. The effect was shocking to me…
