It's funny how no one ever made a film about the case based on what was once considered most likely to have happened, while the Royal family have been unable to stop themselves being vilified by any nutcase with a theory.
It shows where the power really lies.

I've not seen that article before - thank you. It's telling that all sorts of names have been put forward for the Ripper - some with convincing evidence - but this Aaron Kosminski has seemed to escape notice. Didn't someone write on a wall something along the lines of "the juwes (sic) are the ones who shall not be blamed"? I could never figure out what that was in aid of.
