Hi Dan

I'm not going to be home tomorrow for the regular weekly chat. I'm going to go to Atlanta and do a little carpentry for a friend. If no one wants to skip the chat, I can pop into the room before I leave the house and let my computer keep a running log automatically.

I would suggest that either Admin Tim or Chris George step in to be moderator. I know that Chris George has been wanting to cover the topic of the Goulston Street Graffito, so that would be a good one. But feel free to cover any topic that you prefer.

Sorry about not being able to attend, but tomorrow was the only time I could schedule the long drive to Atlanta.

Default Further Update:

Not only will I be away in Atlanta tomorrow, but I will miss next week's chat as well. I will be flying to New Mexico to help my step-daughter move here to Casa Vila.

Her fiance and I will be flying out Saturday afternoon, then packing all her stuff into a pick-up truck and a U-Haul, then driving back to Georgia. I don't yet know what day we'll get back, but I estimate that I'll be gone from March 1st 'til at least the 3rd.

So we'll need a substitute chat-moderator for the next two Sundays. Sorry about the short notice, but even though my family and I have been planning this move for months, everything just fell into place today.

After missing chat for two weeks, I'm happy to state that I'll be back and ready for this week's scheduled Forums chat.

The proposed topic: Did Jack Write Letters? If so, which ones?

In other words, can any of the letters purportedly from JTR be real? Why do you think specific letters were real, and why do you think that specific letters were hoaxes? Can any of the letters be real? What do you believe and why do you believe it?

OK, folks, start sharpening your metaphorical knives and polishing your debating skills. Come Sunday afternoon, you'll be locked in a cage with your peers and left to battle it out until the final curtain.

Scheduled time is Sunday 3-16-08 at 2:00 PM US Eastern Standard Time or 7:00 PM UK Time.

Since no one showed up for last week's chat, should we use the same topic for this week? Should I come up with a new topic? Or is Tim right when he says that chat is dead boring to everyone?

If my being out of the loop for two weeks has killed any chance of chat picking up, I appologize. I enjoy chats myself, but sitting alone in an empty room for several hours isn't my idea of fun.

Hi Dan

The letters are always a good topic for discussion, so, yes, I say we go with that topic. I should be able to stop by. See you then!!!
