Mark -

You ain't got one of them fancy new flat panel monitors that'll rotate for you?

The document at the first link is a .pdf, and Photoshop Elements will import "images" from .pdf files. Lots of .pdfs that look like they have images actually don't, and for them you'd have to copy and paste. This document is all .bmp scans so they do come out easily, one image per page.

I thought I remembered that an earlier Adobe Reader that we had (years ago, when it was more primitive) allowed you to rotate the image on the screen (without rotating the screen) but I don't find that feature in the current version. Makes me wonder if they dropped it or if I just remembered another of those "something I never knew to begin with" bits. Some monitors, even old clunky ones, allow you to rotate the screen image; but you usually have to go into control panel or in the dedicated monitor driver/setup to do it.

I too got a little dizzy trying to read a few pages sidewardly. And as you'd expect, the FBI apparently has a really crappy scanner (or maybe the newpaper made the .pdf).

48 pages isn't much to know about someone like Utah. A friend who worked for an insurance company right after high school (ca. late '50s) reported that the insurance guys had three file drawers on one hollywood notable who'd applied for a policy. (Policy was declined due to "suspected gangland connections = high risk")

ALthough Adobe Reader will not, Adobe Acrobat will allow one or all pages to be rotated 90 or 180 degrees. I will be glad to forward a vertically oriented copy of the PDF file by email to anyone who PMs me to ask for it. However, it will be after Xmas.

I was honored back about 1969 to be able to see my Red Squad File as collected by the Chicago Police Department through the Freedom Of Info. Act. It was all of ten pages long, at most, and contained things like my attending a food collecting rally in Bughouse Square to feed poor people.

Give me a break.

As Lee Hayes said about HUAC going after him, "If it wasn't for the honor of it, I would rather not've been blacklisted!"

The problem here is that if they don't have a file on you, when you request your file they'll have to make a file to keep track of your request, and then the will have a file on you.

Obviously, if they have a file, something needs to be put into the files, so even if they're not suspicious, it will begin to ...

I once asked Utah if he had ever wanted to see his FBI file. His reply was, "Why do I need them to tell me that I'm doing the job right!"
