FBI, Nix – for the “Fourway” Test

by Dick Hefton
The Doldrums of Summer being something of a mind-numbing creative stumbler, practice has led me to leisurely seal a subject or two for mulling till the temps turn sensible.

Inspired by a pair of recent popular books of historical interest right here in our state, invited me to compare the timely coincidental claims that Oklahoma murders, bank heists and kidnappings laid the foundation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. And made the illustrious, or notorious, career for its long serving director, J. Edgar Hoover: The 2015 “The YEAR of FEAR (Machine Gun Kelly and the manhunt that changed the nation), by Joe Urschel. And the 2017 “KILLERS of the FLOWER MOON (The Osage murders and the birth of the FBI), by David Grann. Both fascinating factual national histories that as a sidebar make the connection mentioned above but well short of many of the gripping details of FBI’s evolution.

As luck has it, I had not hit the first computer key when the FBI blew my news slot to the moon. Any delicate, non-partisan, unbiased way you tell the tumultuous story of its beginnings, it needs time for current events no longer smother Oklahoma’s Day in the Sun.  Meanwhile, please read both the fine books, and be ready to see the Flower Moon movie on the screen in November. (However, Lance McDaniel tells me, the release  of Flower Moon may be delayed till a  date later than expected).

Now that I have to depend on the Doldrums of the Summer, how about a little –Something new -
