  1. Tom, Happy Fourth of July! Hope you staying safe and healthy because we need you! Especially in the day an age of the Jeffery Epstein’s and G. Maxwell’s of the world. Where history can repeat itself. Three days ago I finished Chaos. Sensational! I truly feel you are a great American investigative reporter and author! Thank you! Thank you! For your deep overly detailed writing, investigating and persistency! I appreciate when you said (paraphrasing) “looking for the paper no one ever thought of looking at, that is 50 years old that might hold that final clue”. I was born after 1969 and reading your book gave me perspective on that time period and clearer perception of the Family, CIA, LA authorities and secrecy that overlapped. Vincent Bugliosi legacy SHATTERED! It infuriates me that these high profile connections to the murders used their “knowledge” to gain popularity and hide the truth. You shined the light on truth, sir! The Tex tapes need to be released, it’s absurd for the LACDA/ LAPD to think that we overly care that there was clearly a cover up. We are no longer naive to the fact that over the course of 50 years there have been so many cover ups from local, state and federal levels about many variable issues. We are no longer shocked or surprised. So lets us hear these tapes, that can potentially lay to rest this truth, for the sake of the victims’ families. Tom, you have settled my closure on this issue. And thank you for the connection to JFK as well. Please look out for my book review on Apple and anywhere else I can post. Hope Joe Rogan has you back on, I plan I re-watching the interview now that I finished the book. You take care, I truly hope you are cooking up something new, keep that fire burning Tom! Thank you sincerely.
