The fact that Bob was wearing handcuffs was disputed today in the "Dallas
Times Herald".

The writer of the article on Page 2 of Section E stated that he had been told
by another television critic that 1) Bob was doing CPR and 2) Bob was wearing
handcuffs.

The writer went on to say that he since rewatched the scene several times,
very slowly, and concluded that Bob was not wearing handcuffs and he probably
wasn't giving CPR.

He also mentioned that the other critic decided that Laura had listick on 
here teeth.

That sounds fallacious, since traces of lipstick surely wouldn't have washed 
off (I've heard tales of lipstick remaining attached to a body for several 
days despite vigourous scrubbing).

No one besides me and my close friends who watched to show seem to think
Bob was laughing, though.
