SELECTED ARTICLES FROM The Duran

 

Between April 24, 2019 and September 18, 2023, I published around a thousand articles for The Duran; the first was actually published on another site, April 23 then republished by The Duran the following day. My second article (on my own account) was not published until December 14, 2019. In January 2020, I began publishing in earnest. The small selection of articles republished below are in chronological order as PDFs; a link to the original article (which has been archived) can be found at the end of each file. There is a separate section for articles republished on FinancialReform. Notes and significant corrections to articles marked * can be found at the very bottom of this page. Very minor corrections, eg of spelling mistakes, are not included.

Most of my articles attracted reader comments, sometimes many; these are not included here but can be found on the originals (which have all been archived). They can be accessed from the link at the bottom of each.

All my articles for The Duran are also linked from the Baron/ITMA Bibliography.

Notes, Correction And Clarifications To The Above

 

The following are in chronological order:

* Pete Way (1950-2020) – the original title of this article was Pete Way (1951-2020); Pete was far from the first musician to lie about his age, or alternatively this could have been a genuine mistake.
* The Grand Conspiracy Of Wilfrid Wong has been retitled; originally it read The Grand Conspiracy Of Wilfred Wong
* PAUL TODD (1961-2022) was published originally in two parts, each with an image.
* Anne Frank Unmasked? was linked originally to the Amazon review page. This book has now been removed from Amazon and the reviews deleted. The review page was archived but the archived version is protected by a captcha, so I have removed the link.
* Missing Women And Psychic Charlatans; the original article was linked to a YouTube video by Psychic Medium Mara. When I returned to in in April 2024, it had been deleted. I wonder why. Not!!
* What Can You Do If Your Yahoo Account Is Hacked? The associate alluded to in this article is Goodman. Shortly, I drafted a letter for him to send to the CEO of Yahoo by airmail. On November 11, 2023 he told me the letter had been returned to him as undeliverable!
