I read the book but I did not come back with my feelings because of the lunacy that exists that exists here. Also, my feelings about the book have been echoed here by others. It makes no sense to keep repeating the same points. What I will say is that both my husband and I were were shaken by what we read. We felt that RJ was directly involved in Natalie's death long before this book was published but the detailed account of what led to Natalie's death kept us awake. After completing the book and discussing it, we found ourselves being more angry at the police. The investigation reeked of a cover-up. I have a few suspicions that I won't voice here but I will contact Miss Rulli.

I am in total agreement with you. Besides being repetitive with nothing more than "I'm right-you are wrong. RJ is right. Davern is a liar. LOL" tripe the bigotry and condescending racist remarks I have been subjected to is reprehensible.
I notced you mentioned you would be contacting Marti Rulli. Do you have a contact internet address for her?

I have been observing for a while, but I cannot believe your last statement.
Yentrucasatan did YOU not say this a few days ago?
" We can go 'round the mulberry bush with this subject until they are shoveling dirt over Mr. Wagner's boxed and bagged corpse and nothing will change the minds of the inferior."
So you think it is ok to call people who don't agree with you "inferior".....well in my book that is sheer bigotry. Or is this kind of bigotry ok, while other kinds not? Hypocrite. All bigotry is wrong.
I think it the most arrogant statement I have ever read so far on this board.

My dear, inferiority of mind and intelligence comes in all colors, shapes and sizes. It is not relegated to the just the comment pertaining to the "black maid" or a person who condescendingly claims to "work with a black woman", etc.
I can only assume that if one does not share the exact feelings you and your cohorts do you consider them a bigot. I do not. I consider it a difference of opinion until said person(s) becomes obstinate, loud, vulgar and unruly and threatening. Then I consider them ignorant and dangerous people.
Possibly you might want to read or re read Rosamond Marshall's "The Bixby Girls" where one might assume your latest screen name has come from.
You will find many definitions of racism and bigotry and pure ignorance of mind within certain characters of that novel on which the Natalie Wood/Robert Wagner film "All The Fine Young Cannibals" was loosely based.
I wonder how many Internet Protocol number's a person is allowed to have on this board before the moderator steps in?

No, you are wrong. I am not who you think I am, I found this group because I read the book "Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour" and wanted to see what others thought of it. I have been watching your discussions with 2 ladies, and I was enjoying them, till they got sick of it and left, I will agree with you about this site being repetitious, it was only interesting while there were 2 sides - but you and your superior friends will have non of that.
I was sickened by your comment. I think hypocracy is the worst thing to swallow, and even now you do not even see how 'bigotted" you were in making that statement that people who do not agree with you are "inferior". Do I have to spell it out. That is just as bad as the comment that Prince guy said about the black maid. BTW, he should apologise about that too, but I suspect it was not actually meant that way, unlike your comment, which is super clear!
Your response was condescending to me in the extreme, shows no humility and betrays exactly my impression of you, a person with a superiority complex.
I could not believe you having the nerve of attacking others about bigotry when you are an intellectual bigot yourself not matter which way you try to spin it. Others can see what I see. I think even some of those people who are on your side can see what I am saying is true, but they are too afraid of the bullies here to call you up on it, so I had to get an account just so you did not get away with that.
Never in a million years would I ever call someone of a different opinion "inferior"....that is the sort of talk you hear about from hate groups!!!!!
You should be apologising - not justifying yourself.

I am someone on Yen's "side" -- which is nothing more than a side for justice for Natalie Wood. I am not afraid to address this issue. I cannot speak for Yen, but I will say this. I use terms like "idiot" and "ignorant" here and I just can't help myself. I am not proud of myself everytime I do it, but there is nothing more exasperating than trying to help certain people see that what they are debating is NOT a difference of opinion, because they are debating with information that doesn't or never existed. That, I must agree is "inferior" -- someone who refuses, no matter how many times you go around, to accept and fight fair with FACTS, must have some type of inferior disability. There are more than one of you here.
Here's an example. It cracks me up, almost everytime something is mentioned that is a FACT, the response by those "inferior" (because they have nothing but their own wishful thinking to rely on and won't budge beyond it) is that "Davern was drunk" or "Natalie was drunk" -- If "fanhood" can block the mental capacity to exchange thoughts based on fact and not fantasy, that IS an inferior personality. It is beyond belief how Wagner fans will NOT ADDRESS FACTS. Wagner has told us, himself, that there was trouble that night. Natalie DIED! She DIED! God, people, she DIED! She DIED after TROUBLE. And her husband REFUSED TO CALL FOR HELP!!!!!!!!!!! But, that's ok, he thought she was in a dinghy in her nightgown on a pitch black, rainy night.
Wagner has been proven and caught in lies. FACT. So, what's the Wagner fans' answer to that? Oh, he's a celebrity, it's ok to lie, even when there's a dead wife to answer for.
Please. Inferior is an accurate word. I have a lot of worse words, but I'm trying to control myself.

To clarify, I realize that there was drinking on the weekend Natalie died and that all had been drinking over dinner before her death. My point is that Natalie didn't end up dead because Davern was drunk or because and Natalie was drinking. I only wish that Davern had called for help regardless of what Wagner demanded.
But, it was WAGNER who made the decision and I believe what's in Goodbye Natalie that Wagner made an effort to make Davern believe she was in the dinghy.

Well said, Jay. "Sides" It's obvious what "side" you are on.
Some of us are more intellectually gifted than others. It's a fact of life. It has never hurt anyone. It has never kept anyone from living a decent life. It has never caused anyone to sit at the back of a bus or to be denied proper housing or to be told that they can't sit at the lunch counter.
The individual who referred to Willie Mae as the "black maid" has made racial comments in the past. It's disgusting. We know how she meant it. The fact that the words slip off her tongue and onto to paper so easily says it all.

I said some of us are more intellectually gifted that others, I was generalizing. I was speaking of people in general. I Was NOT referring to myself. I think most of the people who read my comment understood that.

Apologize? Apologize to someone who has mocked my heritage and the heritage of my family and those sent before me? This is the difference between the educated and the uneducated as Paytn so beautifully set forth. Possibly you should be seeking an apology from your parents for not demanding the proper education for you.
How do you know who I "think you are"? More nonsensical speculation from you? I made a statement. Possibly you read what you find a stinging truth in it? Can one be that transparent?
There is a line from Shakespeare's Richard III that fits someone such as yourself and the other racist on this board much as a glove fits a hand:
"O coward conscience, how dost thou afflict me!"

Well I see the 3 bullies have spoken....and all have the same "superior" attitude, what a big surprise, for people who consider themselves so "intellectually superior" you can't seem to "understand" why calling people "inferior" is wrong.
First of all, I never even spoke about whether Davern lied, or Robert Wagner lied, that is your obssession, not mine, however you made a very bigotted statement and no matter how you 3 spin it, you still arrogantly hold to that statement, and your total lack of ability to see how wrong that statement was, indicated you can't admit you are wrong about anything!!!!!!! A serious character flaw indeed, and makes all your other arguements lose crediblity for me.
I have also noticed that you are all "super sensitive".....if a person uses an expression like "Russian" as a simple description,(is that what you were refering too?) and from my recollection quickly apologised too(unlike you), yet you are still going on about it! What kind of child are you!
I happen to be German, and some people have said that was very "German" of you.....but I am not super sensitive, I realise what they meant, because I do not have a supreriority complex. YOUR acting still upset about such an obviously unintended offence shows you are not as smart as you think you are, and that you are just "looking" for something to pick on. That is just so "small minded".
On the other hand, I have already agreed that the "black maid" comment was totally wrong too, and that person should apologise too. My problem is merely an issue of "bigotry" - intellectual or racial, its still bigotry. "Inferior" is a loaded word!!!!!!
I have had enough of this board.....you people cannot be "reasoned with" - I see why others have left, you have serious moral issues....and if I ever thought your position was right, your arrogant attitudes have put me right off. All you have given me are excuses, when a simple retraction was all that was needed, I do not wish to read any more of your excuses.

Hi Bixby girl, I havent been on here in a while, I came today because I got this kind of strange copy of an email on Amazon of an old dead discussion. It made me wonder because the woman it was written to had spent some time here, was nice, argued her points civilly and then left, then this. I hadnt come back either because I was beginning to see that people werent so much a book club like site as I had first viewed it. The thing on Amazon looks like someone trying to pick a fight, once I even said on here that it seemed like people were looking for things to argue about.
No one really exchanges stories about Natalie, they exchange insults so it became as off-putting as another site I had joined for information, which is about the crimes of Jeff Macdonald. No one talks about issues there either they just yell at each other and cast personal aspersions. If you are interested in the case, and the book GNGS, write to Marti Rulli's blog, she is a very nice woman and enjoys talking about her book, both pro and con.
