The continuation, Page 5

A veritable treasure trove of fascinating information, Arthur Miller on trial, Private eye accused of trying to bribe a witness in an abortion case (shades of Thicker'n Thieves) and in the Liberace case, Florabel Muir, female reporter, shot in the derriere as she exited a nightclub with Mickey Cohen and his crew. Also one of the last people to talk to Bugsy Siegel before his sendoff. I knew she was involved in a scandal , was it this? Or was she reduced to working for Confidential because she lost her job at a legit newspaper?
--First of all, Charles Stoker's "Thicker'n Thieves" is total junk. It has gained credence in recent years (and become ridiculously valuable) because it's old, but the book is the work of a total crackpot.
--Florbel Muir was a respected reporter (Aggie Underwood thought highly of her) and refused to testify about Confidential. You might enjoy her autobiography, especially for her first-rate description of the Siegel crime scene.
