Don't try and 'reason' with fanatics.
It can't be done.
History has long since proven that a man on a witch-hunt, is GOING to 'find-witches' even if none exist....he will, self-righteuously, create them to prove the he was not wrong.

Pity this man.
The one, here.
He knows his history.
That means he's More than just a little bit educated
But genious, in it's confidence, can get lost from the realities and rules of life the rest of us are forced, by concience, to follow.
He's a very lost man.

Why don't you start a "dote on Windsinger" room, and I'll promise not to go into it.
As for me, I was trying to let it rest, but she kept opening new cans of worms dropping fresh evidence, as if on purpose, evidence, at least to me, that there was foul play in the death of Duane, ...so jeez Louise. I'm practically in shock since my last posting, and I think I've heard about as much as I want to. From all of you.

You know, I think you have too. It must be hard coming here and being the lone voice of reason. I do have a solution for you though - ya know so you won't have to suffer anymore from reading all the big, bad posts. Don't post here anymore - and all will be good - I promise.

Okay folks, Since Skydog has found me out, I'm ready to confess, since, he's been so insistant, I might as well own up to the scam.

I don't live in Georgia.
Have never even been to the place.
I wasn't old enough to know/understand what was going on in the world in 1971, so he's probably also right bout his observations of the time, and the place, he too, has never been to.

Heck, I'm not even female, and no kids (that I know of, yet)
(How long IS a pregnancy, anyway ? My girlfriend says their 10 months long and Someone lied to her gender about that, something about dividing the months of gestation by weeks....)(or was it dividing the weeks by months....)

I'm an investigative reporter for a major newspaper in Dallas, TX
Haven't ever been married, and don't plan to be (dispite certain pressures)

I chanced upon this board while doing some research.
Personally, I thought I did a pretty good job with my story(s)
But I Must have screwed up Somewhere.
I think Skydog caught Something, but, then, got sidetracked and just went off in the wrong direction, while forgetting what it was that first caught his eye.

I Will give him credit for dogging it out though, even if he was wrong in the direction he took.

Now, I will take my leave of you,.....my pretty lady is giving me the evil eye, wanting to go out to dinner.....WOMEN !!! Can't keep um happy, can't live without them......she told me a wedding ring doesn't hurt to wear....do ya think she's lying to me til I find out, too late ?

Dang, Windsinger, I guess I should be mad ... but instead,
I'm astonished at the cleverness of your ruse. You dazzled
us with your ornate wood carvings... obvious forgeries we
must now assume. You romanced us with notions of outhouses
and food banks ... we gave ourselves as clay to your potter's
wheel. And now you leave us ... sheep lost in the wood.

Oh ... Spydog .... hear our song... we call you ... to lead us from
our despair.

I never checked out this thread until today.


Looks like bird72's warning radar went off on the first page of this thread.

I stopped reading this tread for a while after I verified some of the facts from someone who was there. There was no blood....Dixie never left the car.....and after checking on that I figured something was up but decided to play it out until I was certain. Nice, touch, windsinger, with the Norwegian Flot Bread recipe.....did you find that on the internet too?

It seems to have been a clever ruse that illustrates, not how easily someone who is searching for information is dupped, but rather how accepting the people on the forum are to a stranger.

Skydog took a lot of heat on this one and didn't back down. Good job.

You're an investigative reporter in Dallas yet your A key craps out?

Something tells me we still don't know the whole story.

D@mage Control.

Looks like I'll be the rest of the night, @pologising to good folks here.

The ONLY joke, w@s the l@st one, and it w@sn't on y'@ll, but on the person r2ining on our p@r@de

He wouldn't believe the truth, no-m@tter how I worded it, how-m@ny verifi@ble f@cts, so, I wondered how quickly he'd believe @ f@bric@tion.

I told D@ve, yesterd@y, or the d@y before, I w@s thinking @bout (s@rc@stic@lly)posting something the guy might fin@lly believe.......

D@ve tlked me out of it.
Then.

But, tod@y, I, on @ whim, thought the guy w@s gone, so, in Crosstownb@r's delightful style, I thought I'd post something, purely in fun, just to lighten things up here (@lso to see if the guy w@s Re@lly 'gone')

It crossed my mind, th@t @ FEW might t@ke the new posting seriously, but I told my husband that I'd send letters of explanation privately to let um in on wh@t w@s going on.

I see, now, th@t the whole thing b@ckfired.

It's TX I've never been to/in
Don't even know where d@ll@s is, in rel@tion to the st@te.

I w@s born, but not tot@lly r@ised in G@.

(when I wrote th@t first, of two, letters, I w@s h@ving to keep dr@gging 'a's from other pl@ces....took Quite @ bit of time, but usually, the key w@s working, for a chnge)

What a weird turn of events.

I don't know whether windsinger was Chuck's wife, but he or she is not this:
quote:
I'm an investigative reporter for a major newspaper in Dallas, TX
I don't care how poorly the kids are edjurcated these days, there's no way a reporter would be hired who routinely spells things like
insistant
their (instead of "they're")
dispite
charactor (dang, can't spell this evening !) {Any journalist should just correct the typo rather than comment on it.}
Collusium
my writing peek

Okay, easy to see this is no journalist. Then in windsinger's comeback attempt (quoted above), we even see these stupid examples of "a" and "@" in the same word:
D@mage
The bad(cr@ppy) key couldn't be gotten @round
(when I wrote th@t first, of two, letters, I w@s h@ving to keep dr@gging 'a's from other pl@ces....took Quite @ bit of time, but usually, the key w@s working, for a chnge) {It seems that if an "a" were copied to the clipboard, it'd be at least as easy to hit ctrl + v to paste again and again, rather than shift + 2. But okay, some people don't know such shortcuts.}

There are several "a"s that slipped into the stream quite nicely, though:
"It crossed my mind, th@t @ FEW might t@ke the new posting seriously, but I told my husband that I'd send letters of explanation privately to let um in on wh@t w@s going on"

Should I go withdraw my second of Linnie's nomination for this as thread of the year? Maybe not yet--it might be interesting to watch how twisted this gets in the next few days.

By the way, windsinger, playing us through the memory of Duane is about as low as someone can come to this site and go.

Who else do I owe @pologies to ?
Certainly not Crosstownb@r

M@ybe D@ve, for not re@lizing th@ he may have been trying to w@rn me @bout more th@n just SD-70............

Maybe this was just b@d timing, r@ther th@n b@d word choices.
I felt 's@fe' here.
I honestly believed th@t Y'@ll would see through it the w@y C-T-B did, & pl@y @long.
I w@s never l@ughing @ anyone here who h@d befriended me.

I w@s trying to lighten things up, with @ rediculous story for @ll to pl@y with.
If I'm truely quilty of @nything, it's either good f@bric@tion writing, or b@d timing in @n @lre@dy ch@rged @tmosphere.........I just h@dn't @nticip@ted things, serously, going the wrong w@y.

I honestly believed the folks who knew me, best, would either pl@y @long, or drop me @ person@l note @long the lines of "This is @ll @ Joke,.....right ?"

This, the w@y it's turned out, gets sticky.
When w@s he/she telling the truth ?
Before, or l@ter ?

If you w@nt to believe l@ter....then you lose, & so do I.
@ reporter wouldn't c@re.
I guess Some h@ve he@rts, but I'm not sure they c@n do their jobs the w@y they do them, with one.

The closest thing I ever c@me to being @ reporter w@s I w@s the cl@ss @rtist in @ 10th gr@de HS Journ@lism cl@ss @ Pebblebrook HS, in Cobb County, in @ West @tl@nta suburb in 1960-something...66, I think it w@s. The Only type of writing I was interested in doing was editorials.

C-T-B w@s just joking, & so w@s I.
I've been to P@ris Fr@nce (running @w@y from teen-@gers, @ home, & motherhood with s@ved money) But the closest time I've ever been to TX w@s to drive @cross the Miss. River, just to be @ble to s@y I'd Fin@lly been to the other side. I turned @round, @ the closed welcome center, & c@me right b@ck.

If someone would Please tell me how to post a pix here, of C. and the kids @ Christm@s, I h@ve th@t photo....I would h@ve sh@red it, @ Christm@s, but I couldn't figure out how to.

I don't know wh@t else to s@y
H. fe@red folks would get m@d, but I just brushed th@t off, @s him seeing things, the w@y he does, so seriously. I woke him up, to re@d him C-T-B's b@ll b@ck in my court posting.

Now I'm gonn@ h@ve to e@t crow, in the morning, & tell him he w@s right.

Look. I feel b@d @bout this....No-One w@s supposed to get upset.
I w@s trying to bre@k the tension, not @dd to it.

Ann-girl.......d@mn !!!! Hon, it w@s @ mist@ke ! b@d judgement, but I ment well.

Windsinger has rung her bell both ways.

Whether or not she is what she says was never an issue with me. It was, and always will be, that I hope you can get more to the bottom of things regarding Chuck.

Two points I wish to reiterate:

1) If Chuck was a 'Radar Technician' in the military, then I'd hope someone could verify that, because that was the same job Oswald did. ( Give me strength.) Whether Windsinger got this off the internet, or if Chuck was really her husband, I think that is an important point.

2) If Chuck was that 'clean-cut straight-shooter' sort of dude that crosstownbar says he knew in '72- (in an era when the thing to do after 'Nam was to grow your hair and throw away those GI Shoes), then I have a pretty good idea what kind of man was driving the truck that Duane ran into.

Naturally, I still suspect foul play in the death of Duane, -as well Chuck. That is nothing new. A friend in my hometown who first shared a joint with me and let me hear "Eat a Peach", could have told you that. I owe it to him to learn the truth, if no one else.

Poor Duane, poor Chuck.
And you know? The people most responsible are those who start wars on drugs, and other fear mongering, money wasting, love-killing, peace-threatening, deeds that cheapen us all. THEY are still around, still alive, still pulling strings to cause us even more trouble. The whole world hates us on account of them.

My life was personally interrupted, (and nearly ended), by the elder Bush and his 'zero tolerance' crew, back in 1991, and I unequivocally hope Poppy rots in hell. Quote me on it.
And as you can see from my prolific writing, they picked on the wrong guy.

We may not live through the next 30 years because of Poppy's inaction back then on Global Warming and winning elections over jokes about Snowy owls, -when we still had the money and the time to make a change for a better, cleaner and safer world.
They still win elections in the South by spreading the same lies and fears, and fake patriotism. When will you learn?

I have no idea why Duane would have wanted to move back there, except some hopeful feeling that it wouldn't affect him. That was the exact mistake I made in 1991 when I thought I could go home.
Famous last words.

Duane Allman was an amazing musician and powerful personality who died way too young to suit me. I'll always be thankful for the music he left behind, and the spirit he played it with. Thanks Duane.

I Knew this w@s going to be a long night (sometimes the key works, some times it doesn't)

Peter, you're right, a reporter wouldn't mke so mny mistkes (look, I'm gonn hit the key, if it works, ya see it, if it doesn't the letter is missing)

I've had 3 hour's of sleep in the lst 36 or so, and my typing is hunt-n-peck......between that, and this drned key problem, I'm going to be making a LOt of spelling mistkes.

I'm too tired, and wrung out, at this point, to care about spelling.

My part in this, today/night, was Not about D.A.

If it matters, I'll apologise for that, too.

I was not even looking at things from that point-of-view, but you're right.

I've just spent days being repeatedly ttacked for telling the truth, by a mn who didn't even acknowledge when I erased the holes he'd thought he'd found,...he just went on to claim he'd found new ones. @ this point, D.A. wasn't the issue, if my credibility was no good, then what difference did it make? I didn't come here & lie about D.@.

I told the truth, as I was witness to what I saw/heard of it, at the time.
When I finally addressed the issue of his holes in my story(s) I didn't even feel like I was defending myself, because I already felt safe here.
I just laid things out to let folks see for themselves....someone commented that it hadn't been necessary to do that, ...I knew that. but I just wnted the record stright, show him up for his own holes in his conclusions.

I well imagine he's enjoying this.
So I relly didn't ccomplish nything, did i
but to give him the satisfaction of wtching it all unrvel.

But who loses?
He wins
and we all lose,
nd no-one's lerned thing
at least nothing they're gonn still feel good bout.
Wht if I'm the rel thing ?
Think about that.
What if I'm real ?
I'm clerly not reporter.
I'm clearly not the sharpest tck in the box.
I'm too un-educated to use relly big words, nd I'm too PC ignornt to do Lot of things with this gdget.
@ fool I my well be, and darned likely, to be, gain, but, hopefully, not, again, tody.
But a li@r, I'm not.

@ thing s@id in jest, is not lie.
It cn be received in more wys thn one, but it's not, by concious intent, lie
D.@'s memory ....I don't know wht to sy, bout tht.
It ws just the furthest thing from my mind, when I posted those 2 letters.
There ws no disrepect, intended.
If ny ws perceived, then I'm sorry for the oversight/bd judgement.

Wht else do you wnt ?
You will not get a serious true confession to intentionl wrongdoing.
I cn't seriously confess to something I didn't seriously do.

The letters were joke aimed t two purposes.
One, to lighten the tmosphere
two, to see if it ws sfe to come out to relx gin
The Only thing I'm truely guilty of, here, is bad judgement in thinking I ws sfe enough here, for such silly story (the lst one) to be seen through, nd mde light of.

I felt sfe, here, but only if a certain, unpredictble, person ws gone, otherwise I just needed to know. Everyone else, I believed in.....I Thought the feeling ws mutul.

Well, my husbnd's lrm clock just went off, so he's wake, nd I've alredy hd to hve tht crow for my brekfst.........This is one of those times I wish he'd been wrong.

Okay folks, Since Skydog has found me out, I'm ready to confess, since, he's been so insistant, I might as well own up to the scam.

I don't live in Georgia.
Have never even been to the place.
I wasn't old enough to know/understand what was going on in the world in 1971, so he's probably also right bout his observations of the time, and the place, he too, has never been to.

Heck, I'm not even female, and no kids (that I know of, yet)
(How long IS a pregnancy, anyway ? My girlfriend says their 10 months long and Someone lied to her gender about that, something about dividing the months of gestation by weeks....)(or was it dividing the weeks by months....)

I'm an investigative reporter for a major newspaper in Dallas, TX
Haven't ever been married, and don't plan to be (dispite certain pressures)

I chanced upon this board while doing some research.
Personally, I thought I did a pretty good job with my story(s)
But I Must have screwed up Somewhere.
I think Skydog caught Something, but, then, got sidetracked and just went off in the wrong direction, while forgetting what it was that first caught his eye.

I Will give him credit for dogging it out though, even if he was wrong in the direction he took.

Now, I will take my leave of you,.....my pretty lady is giving me the evil eye, wanting to go out to dinner.....WOMEN !!! Can't keep um happy, can't live without them......she told me a wedding ring doesn't hurt to wear....do ya think she's lying to me til I find out, too late ?
W.



This post of Windsingers is an obvious joke ... maybe not a great idea... but a joke
nonetheless. It is she who has been called out personally by Skydog70
and on several occasions. Who of us should tell her how or how not-to respond. The
idea of sullying DA's memory would be valid if she were part of a hoax... but she isn't
and thus innocent. She merely wanted to have a little fun with her attacker ... we all
can see that she loves to write. She thought she had a safe-house from which to do
so. None of this changes who she is ... or what she has given to the Duane forum.

I know that I for one am totally confused! But I will add my 2 cents. I live in Cobb County Ga. and if Wind says she went to Pebblebrook High School that is a pretty good indication that she was raised in Ga.. Now as far as if the postings of Winds are legit or not...I will hold my judgement. But if you were going to pick a school from this area Pebblebrook would be one of the absolute last ones you would pick. One of the lowest in the county in test scores ect.. If you google Cobb County I doubt Pebblebrook High School would even come up, except that it is now our performing arts High School because it got so bad that everybody was moving out of Mableton because of the school and the powers that be had to do something to keep some students in the school. As I stated, I will hold judgement but I doubt that questioning from a waaaaay ouuuut dude would stop a real reporter from continuing his "scam". That would only increase the stakes on the fabrication don't you think? Not taking Winds back quite yet but just my thoughts about the "mess".

I still believe Windsinger is who she says she is, but I AM a little upset that she didn't take my advice and not play games on the forum with Skydog70. If you ignore a troll, they will eventually go away. All she did was feed the troll. You feed the troll, they keep returning.

Skydog70, you're just a conspiracy theorist. To suggest Duane died as a result of foul play is plain old fashioned bull$hit. Unless you have your hand on some top secret government file as evidense, you're just waisting your breath.

Why don't you just GO AWAY?

C'mon Dave..don't hold back..tell us how you really feel?
Been away for a few days, and I can't believe how this topic has taken a turn like this.
Anyone has a right to believe, or not believe Wind's story, it's alll in how you question it though, show a little class, and decentcy, you might be wrong. When i read her first post It didn't dawn on me if it was contrived or not, i only relived the pain of that day, and didn't think twice. The accident really happened!! Duane is dead!! That will never change, whether it happened the way Wind said or if he was struck by a bolt of lightning. All we have left is the music, and that will outlive us all.
Put some Duane on the Turntable (showing my age), and forget the Hiraldo Rivera stuff. Just listen to the music, it's all Duane wanted us to do in the first place...Right?

I miss Duane, too, and regard him as a great human being who contributed so much to the world in so short a time.
That is the main reason I entered this forum.

But, Dickey Betts is still around, even though they kicked him out long ago.
I even miss Dangerous Dan; but they didn't want him either.
So, my point about the general trend of good things degenerating with time, and nobody spared.
Ritchie Valens, had he lived, might have turned into Tony Orlando.
Romeo and Juliet might have gotten a divorce.

But I'm sorry, -very sorry- room, for any offense about the "Lie with Pigs, wake up smelling", analogy.
That was just an old adage my father taught me, one I didn't think out well enough before I said.
My father never knew for sure if I really agreed with it, either, and I always hated to hear it, myself.
I guess you have your own opinions about respect for parents, and might even curse me for saying he was a man I ought to try and forget. But, if you didn't like my analogy about the pigs, then you probably wouldn't have agreed with him either, and therein is all the rationale I'll ever need.

Anyway, pigs remind me of food, and their manure makes the soil fertile. That was just the old generation talking negatively, and they were obviously so full of it..

Ok ... I have an apology to make about my role in the
Skydog70 situation ... and the turn for the worse this
thread is flirting with. I know not to "feed the trolls"....
but I did anyway. It's a little like watching a train wreck
in progress ... you know not to look but you can't help
but have a peek. Generally, I don't feed them .. I don't
even post that often. But I kinda feel protective of Wind
when her credibility becomes questioned... so I took a few
shots at SD70 in her defense. I'm irreverant by nature... my
posts were sorta whimsical ... but mostly in good fun. I even
told SD70 that I was just poking some fun at him and not to
take me seriously.
I feel now that if I had not played with Skydog70 ... then
Windsinger probably wouldn't have either. So... folks ... I do
apologize for my part in all this.
For anyone curious... this is how I know without reservation
that she is Chuck's widow. The construction company that Chuck
and I worked for was family-operated (2 brothers and a bro-in-law).
My father was lifelong friends with all of them... we were neighbors
out in the country on the NW outskirts of Macon. Chuck was more
than a 40 hour per week employee... he often helped out on the
farm on weekends and was pretty much part of their family. Windsinger
detailed enough info about these people ... names of kids, layout
of their house,etc. ... that I knew immediately that she was real.
She was a constant visitor to the owner's house along with Chuck...
and knew the same things about these folks that I did.

Crosstown, I still feel like she is who she said she is, but she did more damage to her credibility than she might realize by making those posts.

Were you around when the MUSHROOMS fiasco went down? A BUNCH of us got pulled into this drama where a poster by the name MUSHROOMS supposedly had a son who was mortally injured in a car accident. This went on for several days. People in the forum GRIEVED for this person as their son supposedly died from his injuries. We began discussing a way to honor the dead son by donating or making memorial contributions, and once that stated, some of our more astute posters started researching, trying to find out more about the accident, the victim, etc., until it became evident it was all bull$hit. You can imagine the indignation some of us felt, especially me, because I was still grieving the loss of my own mother at the time. I was vulnerable and got caught up in it. Now, if there's even a whiff of bull$hit in the air, flags get raised and the doubting begins. Wind didn't know about the MUSHROOMS saga, but in effect, what she did was raise a flag and the doubting began. After all, this is the internet, and there's plenty of bull$hit out there. I just hope everyone will see this for what it is...a bad attempt at sarcasm on her part.
