I'm one up on you, Billy. That conversation has been transcribed and will be up on our web site in a few days.

Linda Ives responds to Bottoms:

Your wild rantings that Mena, Arkansas did not serve as a hub for the large scale drug smuggling operation set up by Barry Seal in the early 80's are as ludicrous as your offers of help and information about my "loss." In the conversation you had with Mark, you acknowledged that you're not even convinced Kevin and Don were murdered. Here's the excerpt from that conversation:

Bottoms: And, uh, to be on that track, the only thing that does is allow, if anything. . . you, know, if it wasn't an accident, uh, I have no idea. . . . Mark: Wasn't an accident? Bottoms: Well, I don't know.

So, Mr. Bottoms, what kind of information do you have about murders that you don't even know happened? Indeed, you are a prime example of why I believe that people shouldn't talk about things they know nothing about, and I want to assure anyone and everyone who has taken an interest in my son's murder that you know n-o-t-h-i-n-g about it. I find it less than coincidental that Billy Bottoms is suddenly interested in Linda Ives and her "loss", and the fact that the White House has included me on their "enemies list" as was reported in The Wall Street Journal on Monday, January 6, 1997. ( It is obvious to even the casual observer that you, a criminal by your own admission, are simply a government paid thug disseminating DIS-information about me and my murdered child.

As far as Jean taking some kind of fee from me? You may be a bought-and-paid-for whore, but I can assure you and everyone else, Jean is not being paid.
