VMs: FW: Voynich cover-story?
"Stormfront" is a white-supremacy/white-separatism rag - surprising that
they would mention the VMs in an article, since they (if one is to treat
'Prof.' Oliver's article as a paragon) appear to have such utter contempt

ideology. It seems that its having shared even some provenance with an
Italian family would invalidate it in their eyes :-).
And the beat goes on...
