Ralph, you're crazy. To still be debating Lovelady as Oswald...lunacy. In this and other media, it's proven beyond a doubt that it is Lovelady. No person of reason would debate it.

That's really what it comes down to, isn't it, Jack? FIAT or you could say: Orwellian Crimestop.

"The first and simplest stage of discipline, which can be taught even to young children, is called in Newspeak, 'Crimestop.'  Crimestop means the faculty of stopping short, as though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought. It includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments if they are inimical to Ingsoc, and of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction. Crimestop, in short, means protective stupidity.

 George Orwell, 1984

From the very first day, or at least by the second day, people the world over thought that Oswald was Doorman, and leading advocates, such as Harold Weisberg, Vincent Salandria, and Mark Lane, never recanted.

Vincent Salandria and Mark Lane are still alive, and they are both members of the Oswald Innocence Campaign. Harold Weisberg is dead, but his intellectual and material heir Gerald McKnight is still alive, and he too is a member of the Oswald Innocence Campaign.

And you think you can play the "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" card, or in this case, the man in the doorway? That didn't work in Oz, and it's not going to work here.
