Re: Caldwell on "Deceptive Publishing"
    Points noted.  I wonder, however, 
how much "air time" much of the false 
material deserves.  An example comes to 
mind, of in the 60's after Bobby Kennedy 
got shot and Sirhan Sirhan asked for the 
SD in jail.  The following national press 
had HPB being the author of a book titled 
"The Manual for Revolutionaries" - Totally, 
totally, made up horse manure, as no such 
book even existed.  (Bakunin published a 
similar book, however.)  Should this incident 
be published about and publicized ad 
infinitum, and constantly referred to - or 
just debunked efficiently, and then let go 
for what it was?  Make it available somewhere 
for interested parties, mention key points 
and dissembling,but don't mix it all in with 
the genuine material, so all but the most 
serious reader is confused and can't 
easily tell the one from the other.
