This isn't phucking baseball memorabilia. IDGAF if the signature is real or not, asssume its 10000000% real.
Why did a 16 yr old waitress in a small Alabama town in 1977 have a newly minted, 28 year old lawyer who apparently was a customer in the restaurant where she worked sign her yearbook?
Did he sign before or after he brutally raped her and left her for dead in an alley.?
Now, I don't know how you youngsters do it with your MyFace and your Instachat, but in 1977, WHO signed your yearbook was of major significance, especially for girls. I know this because 1977 was the year I graduated from HS and I have sisters around my age and believe me when I tell you, it was very important.
Typically, your friends, possibly your exes, favorite teachers, and of course the popular kids. maybe the nice nerd that helped you in math class somewhere near the back of the book. Signatures, once collected were compared and an arbitrary, unwritten social ranking assigned.
So why did she have Roy Moore sign her book? It was a very nice, generic signature that in no way indicates she was at all distressed about the relationship and the time. The fact that she had him sign it I can almost assure you was something she bragged about to her friends.
Not all 16yr old girls are innocent, shrinking violets. Some 15-18yr old girls are downright predatory, especially if they have their eye on an "older" man. In this case. Moore was a single, 28yr old USMA grad, veteran with a JD and a license in a small Alabama town. Could it possibly be there was a mutual attraction? Could he have been seen as a "catch" in that environment given that in that time and place, marriage was the next big life step, not college, for many if not most young girls.
IOW, dial back the pedo /rape nonsense. It make you all look like a bunch of demented assholes. Try and apply learning, experience, logic and a healthy dose of skepticism to what you read...or not. I don't care
