On Wednesday (9/22) I posted the following item:

Recovered memory
On Monday, Joe Lockhart could not recall whether he discussed the forged documents with Bill Burkett: "Lockhart said he does not recall talking to Burkett about Bush's Guard records."

Tuesday, Joe Lockhart suddenly recalled, with specificity, that he had not discussed the forged documents with Bill Burkett: "Lockhart said he discussed neither the National Guard nor the documents with Burkett."

On Wednesday ... we'll see.


Well, I was a bit premature ...

Thursday, Bill Burkett sapped Joe Lockhart: "During a single phone conversation with Lockhart, Burkett said he suggested a 'couple of concepts on what I thought (Kerry) had to do' to beat Bush. In return, he said, Lockhart tried to 'convince me as to why I should give them the documents.'" (Hat tip to Beldar for link.)

Today's Friday ...


Update Friday, September 24, at 2:00 p.m.

Jack Douglas, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, who wrote the "Thursday" story referred to above, has now filed this correction:

"The earlier version incorrectly reported that he [Burkett] had discussed the documents with Joe Lockhart of the Kerry campaign."

It's like a barrel of monkeys out there.
