While we are on the subject of nonsense in the Black Dahlia case, the Sky Valley Chronicle posted a story yesterday based on Donald H. Wolfe’s “The Black Dahlia Files.” As many of you may know, this book is so bad that I devoted an entire blog to debunking it.
Here is an index to the blog, which unmasks many of Wolfe’s errors and manipulations. Be sure to read “How to Fake a Document.”
Your patience with the Dahlia brigade amazes me.
Found a copy of the Wolfe book at a thrift shop for $1. I think I overpaid…
It’s a puzzle why the residents of ‘Sky’ (nee Skykomish) Valley Washington (a semi-rural valley forty miles east of Seattle) would care a whit about the Black Dahlia. And ‘Breaking News’? Maybe there was a rupture to the relentless flow of events in Sultan, Gold Bar and Index.
In the libertarian world of the internet it’s common to see editors and fact-checkers denigrated, but here’s the alternative: a dubiously-sourced book is promoted as ‘meticulous’ in a penny-saver newspaper. ‘Exhausting’, indeed.
Keep up the fight.
