Well, here we go again. One more time, Gobsmacked. (British for “utterly astonished or astounded.”) This is truly unbelievable.
Right at a year ago, the HD video of my Dallas-area lecture on “The Raleigh Call” was posted on Youtube. I was pleased that Tom Keener and his staff had done such a superb job making and editing the video, and that they felt the subject matter worthy of being posted.
Fast forward exactly six months. I get word from Tom that they are amazed that the video has received over 20,000 views — a record (at that time) for any of the lectures in their series! It worked out to, on average, 120 views every day since it was posted.
I wrote all that up in a posting (here) at the time, noting that “this response is minuscule compared with Gangnam Style (2.6 billion) or any of a whole host of Taylor Swift or funny cat videos. But for a lecture (ugh; no music or dancing or feline frolics) — about a relatively small part of an “acquired-taste” subject (the JFK Assassination) — much less, a lecture by me! Well, suffice it to say I was quite amazed and very humbled.”
Fast forward six more months, and here’s the big news: last night the Youtube “videometer” clicked over 100,000 views!
Think about it: that’s 20,000 views in the first six months, and 80,000 views in the second six months! On average, 260 views per day since it was posted. How is that possible??
My sincere thanks to Tom Keener and his crew (again), as well as to all the people who have viewed the video and recommended it to others. (That has to be how it happened; there are not 100,000 people out there who have any earthly idea who I am — or care!) I am truly grateful that people have seen something valuable and interesting in this video.
To quote Sherlock, “My blushes, Watson!”
LEE OSWALD AND THE FINGERS OF INTELLIGENCE
The first 59 minutes is my lecture on “The Raleigh Call.” The remainder is the question-and-answer session, where I was joined on stage by fellow researcher Jim Marrs, author of Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy. The Q&A went on for over an hour; the audience members simply kept coming up with great questions and were eager to ask them!
