Let’s look at the info so far:
Dear Professor X.
What’s all this? Who is writing this? Who is Professor X, other than a bald guy in a wheelchair? What’s this all about?
I ran across your name while researching the details surrounding The Mascot…..
In what regards?
While The Mascot has yet to be debunked, I find the story outrageous and frankly impossible to believe.
How so? And in what way is this unknown person qualified to make such a judgment?
I have been in contact with some researchers
and although they has not read the book
So of what value is their testimony about the book?
, he confirmed
Why did this suddenly switch from plural to singular tense?
that others have expressed my views to him about the story’s credibility.
So a man who hasn’t read the book has said that some people have questioned the book’s story. He didn’t say that he questions it, but that other people have asked him about it. So what?
I have attempted to contact officials at The Penguin Group
Who, and how? And with regard to what?
and have attached two letters for your review.
Like Professor V
, my inquiries have been ignored.
In what way?
One editor even refused to speak to me which raises more concerns.
Why should he spend time speaking to you? Do you think that he has nothing else in life to do other than to hang around the telephone waiting in case you call?
The Penguin Group has a track record of publishing stories that turn out to be hoaxes.
What major publisher doesn’t? Do you have any evidence showing that they knew those stories to be hoaxes when they published them? And they also have published much that is true. Each book has to be judged on its own.
I am writing to you to determine if you have done any research on the veracity of the story told in The Mascot. I would be very interested in your opinion.
And then. . .?
.....The story has been featured on national television including 60 Minutes.
Penguin refuses to address the issue as they did when others like Danny Bloom inquired about Angel at the Fence.
Huh? What are you talking about?
That was an incredibly vague and uninformative post.
