Fox News changes Tennessee Williams article by adding LIES!!!
Wed. Feb 17, 2010 9:45 PM
The article I was so happy to see was just another Fox News trap. They have changed it but not even been honest and updated the "Updated:" time and date. They've added lies that are NOT in the public record that they quote a few bits of truth from. Let's see if they pull them out or some other trick next.
Thank God I save copies of websites in secure places. In RED, below, is newly added and a LIE. Other untruths are noted in my blog post earlier today.
Thanks Michael Remer. We know you want your $1/3 Billion, but it belongs to Sewanee and it needs to be managed by Harvard. Could anyone find better proof of this???
"Tennessee Williams' Death Mystery Uncovered

(MYFOX NATIONAL) – Almost 27 years after famed American playwright Tennessee Williams' mysterious sudden death, his former co-workers and partner have refuted original reports that the 71-year-old's demise was due to choking on a bottle-cap.
This week his friend and fellow playwright Larry Myers revealed the real cause of death to The New York Post : "Williams did not choke on a nasal spray cap lodged in his windpipe as reported then... No booze, no AIDS, no suicide, no murder – what media hungered for! 'Acute Seconal intolerance' is what the autopsy report reveals. This has never been reported".
The "A Streetcar Named Desire" creator instead had "become intolerant to almost everything, lost weight, and couldn't digest properly, but was extremely lucid", according to director John Uecker, who found him dead in his suite at the Hotel Elysee in New York City.
Myers said the Tony Award-winner had continued writing until the day he died, Feb. 25, 1983. And Williams' longtime companion Scott Kenan, who lived with the "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" author part-time in Key West, claimed someone in the office of the NYC coroner "created the bottle-cap scenario."
However, The New York Times originally reported in 1983 that the New York City Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Elliot M. Gross, had said the cause of Williams' death was "asphyxia", from trying to ingest the barbiturate secobarbital when he choked on the cap. (RED = LIE added after original posting of this article.)
"Apparently the overcap was being used to take the barbiturates,'' said Dr. Gross.(TOTAL LIE - Gross never said any such thing in his report, and I believe he's dead. Is Fox reporter having Visitations of the Spirit?)
Meanwhile, mystery also surrounds the recent death of fellow American author, J.D. Salinger, of "The Catcher In The Rye", who continued to write daily even though he published his last original work in 1965.
But as The Independent reports, questions were raised about the whereabouts of the reclusive author's unpublished works – he kept at least two finished novels hidden in his famous safe – rather than what killed the 91-year-old.
