With a name like Amelia Earhart, I guess the idea of doing something like this, must come up. That is why none of the Booths have named any children John Wilkes lately. I hope

Maybe those investigators will quit twisting bits of old combs and some old story about some bones into "evidence" of the first Earhart. Here she is, investigators! We found her!

Well, his navigation "error" was most likely intentional. He had been denied permission to make a transatlantic flight but went and did it anyway, and then claimed it was a mistake.
