Hello everyone- This is my first post here, but I've been lurking for awhile. I used to visit regularly but forgot about the case until JMK hit the news. As someone who always thought Patsy did it, I was not surprised to see JMK revealed as krank. Anyway, I did a search but haven't seen this mentioned, so forgive me if it's been discussed before. I was on ForumsforJustice and was reading Sylvia's review of DOI. Something caught my eye: on page 3 of the book she quotes John as writing that at Christmas - "JonBenét asked for Burkes assistance with the name tags, since he could read and she couldnt. That seemed odd to me. The average kindergartener is 5 and can definitely read and write. They won't be writing novels, of course, but should be able to handle simple words and sentences - and certainly their own names. I would say the average kindergartener would also be able to handle the simple task of other people's names, especially those in their family. They might need prompting, but John stated quite unecquivocally that JonBenet couldn't read, not that she needed some spelling help. Lest we forget, JonBenet was no ordinary 6 year old. From Patsy's Christmas newsletter which someone in another thread kindly linked to: JonBenet is enjoying her first year in 'real school.' Kindergarten in the Core Knowledge program is fast paced and five full days a week. She has already been moved ahead to first grade math. So why was a 6 year old in a supposedly intensive kindergarten program - and supposedly an above average student - not able to read, according to her own father?
