Re: Case Closed

I am always intrigued by discussions like this one. On one hand, you have the individuals plain publicly spoken words; on the other you have the never-ending desire of historians, various news hounds, and other experts to uncover what individuals "really meant" - the hidden thoughts and secret meanings presumably buried in the id or deep subconscious.
