Backes put up the ROTC image, including the signature of Tommy Collins over himself. He made no comment about "Tommy" being written right over the figure that Linda Zambanini claims is Bookhout. Apparently, it has no significance to him. It looks very much like a signature, so Tommy probably signed it for someone- writing over himself. Of course, he wanted to identify himself.
And no Backes: it's not Larry Rivera who pointed to the short chubby kid as Bookhout. Why be so stupid? If it were Larry, I would say so. Don't I mention Larry a lot? So, why wouldn't I mention him here. But, it's not Larry, and it is not anyone I have ever mentioned.
So, one person, Linda Zambanini, claims that the man on the right is Bookhout, and Backes acts like she's Solomon. But, why would Tommy Collins sign his name over the figure of James Bookhout? Why would Tommy Collins sign his name over the figure of James Bookhout? Why would Tommy Collins sign his name over the figure of James Bookhout?
Backes doesn't even have the decency to alert all his readers to the fact that that is the issue: the signature over the body.
I'm sure both are very offended. Well, maybe not Pink O'Blazney, but definitely the other guy.
What the hell do you think it means, Backes? It means that it's him, Tommy Collins. And that means that this is James Bookhout.
