D the job that put him six floors above Dealey Plaza into which on November 22 1963 he fired a rifle he'd kept hidden inside Mrs Paine's house But this is also a tale of survival and resilience the story of a devout open hearted woman who weathered a whirlwind of suspicion.

review Mrs Paine's Garage and the Murder of John F Kennedy ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Exactly forty years have passed since Ruth Hyde Paine a uaker housewife in suburban Dallas offered shelter and assistance to a young man named Lee Harvey Oswald and his Russian wife Marina Mrs PaiExactly forty years have passed since Ruth Hyde Paine a uaker housewife in suburban Dallas offered shelter and assistance to a young man named Lee Harvey Oswald and his Russian wife Marina Mrs Paine's Garage is the tragic story of this well intentioned woman who found Oswal. Mrs Paine’s Garage published back in 2002 is an unfortunate little book I have a distant connection to it one that I regretIn July 2001 its author Thomas Mallon sent me an email introducing himself He briefly described his latest project – a sympathetic look at Ruth Paine a figure in the JFK assassination – and asked if I could put him in touch with Mrs Shirley Martin who had known the eponymous Mrs Paine many years beforeMallon had apparently Googled Mrs Martin and found no contact information But the Internet in its infinite thoroughness linked my name to hers due to some research I was then conducting So I wrote to Mrs Martin about Thomas Mallon and she agreed to talk to himThomas Mallon's motives for undertaking a book about Ruth Paine are unknown to me and I won't speculate on them But I find it hard to understand how he could write  Mrs Paine's Garage without playing at least a gentle form of devil's advocate with his subject Such a role which some would consider the writer's duty might have elicited valuable information that would have greatly enhanced the resulting narrative even if Mallon stuck to what I am convinced was a preconceived conclusionAs it developed there was no devil's advocacy and conseuently no real depth to  Mrs Paine's Garage Thomas Mallon accepts the official story of the JFK assassination and it follows the official story of Ruth Paine and her role in that cataclysmic eventThat role in sum is that Ruth Paine was in 1963 a good hearted uaker woman who happened to befriend Lee and Marina Oswald at a critical juncture in their lives She allowed the pregnant Marina and one daughter soon two to live with her in suburban Dallas while misfit Lee dreamed the dreams of the perpetual loser finally exacting a psycho sicko revenge on society by murdering President KennedyThomas Mallon refers to Ruth Paine as a vessel of disinterested kindness Others see Mrs Paine in a much different lightRuth and her husband Michael maintain a delicate balance between intimacy and distance as concerns Lee Harvey Oswald wrote a Paine researcher in 1995 They exploit their role as intimate when they want to condemn Lee and take on the mantle of being expert witnesses as to his character and how violence prone he was and how capable he was of committing the assassination But they conveniently distance themselves from him when they want to avoid scrutinyAfter his arrest a desperate Lee Oswald telephoned Mrs Paine from jail and asked her help in contacting a lawyer named John Abt I was uite stunned that he called at all or that he thought he could ask anything of me – appalled really Ruth told the Warren CommissionYet she did in fact try to reach John Abt on Oswald's behalf Asked by the Warren Commission whether she informed Oswald she had failed to contact him this vessel of disinterested kindness replied I made no effort to call the police stationSylvia Meagher was herself appalled really by this admission Her failure to notify Oswald that she had been unable to reach Abt so that he would realize the urgency of obtaining legal assistance elsewhere is unforgivable she wroteThere is about Ruth and Michael Paine a lot – but I want to keep this fairly shortThere are portions of  Mrs Paine's Garage which are downright deceptive In a footnote on page 57 Thomas Mallon cites an assassination legend that on November 22 1963 Ruth Paine greeted Dallas Police officers with the words Come in I've been expecting you These officers had come to search Mrs Paine's home several hours after the assassination and the Paine garage yielded a trove of evidence damning Lee OswaldAs others have noted the arrival of the cops at the Paine house was not in and of itself suspicious; Oswald listed the Paine address on his employment application to the Texas School Book Depository It's her greeting that seemed so odd even to the police When they arrived at the Paine home Lee Oswald had not yet been publicly identified as an assassination suspectIn any case Ruth Paine firmly denies the greeting attributed to her telling Thomas Mallon I was not expecting them and I did not say thatMaybe she didn't But the allegation is not a legend which my dictionary says is an unverifiable story handed down by tradition No it comes from the testimony of several of the cops including Dallas Police Detective Guy F Rose who before he testified raised his right hand and swore that what he was about to say was the truth and nothing but so help him God Maybe Detective Rose perjured himself But this is not a legend it is sworn testimony And maybe it is trueIt is worth mentioning that Shirley Martin who is now deceased later told me that after making contact with her Thomas Mallon said some things to her that may not be true Shirley said he told her that he would be able to uote her letters to Ruth Paine in his book whether Shirley gave him permission or notThis is almost certainly incorrect Writers are restricted on what they can uote without permission It is a matter of intellectual propertyI hope Shirley Martin said he is not another PosnerHe wasn't but not for lack of trying  Mrs Paine's Garage was duly published and excerpted in  The New Yorker and lauded by the usual media sluts It appears finally to have sunk into a well deserved oblivion
