How NOT to read documents

Lately, with the large document dumps NARA has put out of JFK assassination records, some people have been posting JFK documents highlighting certain things that aren't worthy of being highlighted or don't mean what the person posting the image thinks it means because they want to be the first to discover something.  For example,  someone on Facebook posted this:

You'll note his English skills aren't the best.  He meant to say "throw," as in the verb.  He has highlighted text as though there isn't a semi-colon in there.  He read it as if it was written as "Jack Leon Ruby, also known as, Lee Harvey Oswald." That's not how it was written.  

Hoping he's not really this stupid I wrote:
