Correct me please if I am wrong...Sir Paul Rychier,
You seem to propose at our dear Host BRH to write some fiction based on some historical facts about Napoleon mixed with a lot of drivel to goad, to spur the uncivilized public brought into the mood with a clever publicity campaign. Or to led it do by an unscrupulous journalist?
Not at all, Paul. I am not proposing for BRH to create some historical fiction. I only want the subject of the disappearance of Napoleon's body is dealt with better from a marketing standpoint. The readers must understand immediately the problem. There is sufficient amount of proof and argument to classify this matter as a criminal one. Imagine that a judge gets a hold of this case/file he will immediately understand the facts. I never said that an unscrupulous journalist should lead this story - why would you say that? If you have any knowledge of CNN, you should know that they have excellent invesitgative journalists. An invitation by BRH by the talk show host Oprah Winfrey would give BRH a total control of the subject. This journalist controls America every afternoon and every topic is discussed on her show...
sorry, I think I was misled by your Da Vinci Code mentioning. Now I understand it better. Nevertheless, not sure if the CNN example is valid. Bruno, appeared already in a discussion on TV, if I recall it well, with "the" autority on Napoleon, namely Jean Tulard. I had the honour to have a brief conversation with him (Tulard) on the BBC history messageboards in 2002 in my then rather poor English. But now to conclude: I guess I see your drift.
Warm regards from your friend,
