    There was a second guy with a blaster.

    Dean probably has the “Darn right I shot first” Han Solo T-shirt…

    If Han didn’t shoot first, it must have been the shooter on the grassy knoll.

    Hiding on the hill behind the fence … and not in the Book Depository.

    Still too visible. Too much out in the open, where it could be seen or heard, and where people can too easily converge. Not hidden enough. Hence not plausible, even if you ignore all the other factors.

    Since Greedo had the drop on Han, he had his blaster out first, Shooting him from under the table is well justified. Lucas should have left it alone. Why is it so hard to understand? Was it because Greedo was an alien and throw people off on the obviousness of the situation?

    It’s George Lucas’ own fault. Three generations grew up loving the Star Wars universe he had created. Going back and sanitizing the film to make it nicer was the equivalent of having Mark Twain come back and rewriting Tom Sawyer to make him less of a brat. You can’t tamper with something people adore without expecting a backlash unless you’re an oblivous idiot.

    I thought the redo of the films was great, probably because I watched the show about the reasons why he did what he did, showed the things that were obvious mistakes in the original. The fact he was there and could add some missing scenes was good too. personally I never thought much about the redoing the Greedo scene until all the anal retentives had hysterical fits about it. I watch movies to be entertained. I was entertained by both versions. I don’t think who shot first had much bearing on the film at all. I don’t think that sanitizing was ever in his mind. If Samuel Clemons was to sanitize Tom Sawyer he wouldn’t make him less a brat, he would have removed the offensive ‘N’ word, which he did have to defend in his life time because he wasn’t being purposely derogatory to blacks but merely reflecting how people spoke in the time being written about.

    Dukedog: And then crossed a railroad yard in sight of an FBI agent on the Triple Underpass, and railroad police in the yard, while carrying a rifle. No wonder they had to invent conspiracy theories to explain it. That doesn’t exclude more than one attempt planned, I predicted as much the Monday before when a bunch of adult Boy Scout leaders where cheering chilihead Wick Fowler’s attack on Kennedy. I just thought all that security would have prevented any success.

    Not while the original is still in living memory, George. Sorry.

    Very likely.
