I like it much better that the spreadsheet.  It's almost like the book is writing itself. . . .!

Think of the timeline as scripture.  I still have to write the sermon.

I don't think that's an appropriate analogy, Ric. This is not a cult, and you are not a religious figure.

I am a Roman Catholic priest.

I have a BA in English, a Master's in Philosophy, and a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology.

I am a full Professor in a Jesuit College.

I can read Biblical Hebrew, New Testament Greek, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Russian (OK, very slowly, and with lots of help, but I know the grammar and syntax of the languages well enough to see what is going on).

Ric used an analogy.

If anyone ever said, "My love is like a red, red rose," the intelligent listener ought to think of the woman's beauty which, like the rose, flourishes in due season and then fades.  The intelligent audience would never suppose that the love in question had green leaves, red flower petals, and thorns.

It's not hard to follow Ric's analogy.  Although I am a religious believer who honors Sacred Scripture and who preaches regularly, I do not feel offended in any way by the comparison.

Of course other analogies are possible.  Ric could compare what he is doing to a lawyer preparing for a trial.

Timeline: information to be processed.  One might call these "the facts."

Book: expression of insights into the meaning of the information.  One might call this "the case."

We have added Dan Brown as an editor to the timeline. Dan and I have been making some additions in July 1936 you may want to check out.
We're still just getting started with building this timeline but we're already learning things we never knew and confirming things we have only suspected.

That's an interesting photo but it is misrepresented. Can you spot the problem?

If that is the top hatch into the cockpit , then it is it's later position,..... hinge on centerline, instead of over the port window. I can't see enough of plane to tell if it is the Electra.

That's right.  As far as I know, the Electra was the only aircraft that had a hatch like that and Earhart's was the only Electra to have a reversed hatch.

Although a much later aircraft, the A-26 Invader had a similar arrangement -- opening outwards.

Ric, are you familiar with this photo? (I almost assume you are, just checking to be sure).
Apparently taken during lunch on an airfield in Venezuela.

Yes, I've seen. Not terribly flattering of Fed.
