Absolutely.  I know I've revisited places after decades and seen things that 
are very different than I remember them.  They didn't change, my memory, 
which seemed very vivid, was wrong.  However....I think people do suppress 
traumatic childhood events sometimes and those memories can surface later in 
life.  Would I believe every detail?  Well, no, but I don't doubt it can 

What's your reason for thinking Pete recovered this memory through a quack 
shrink?  Has he talked about that process?  I was a little surprised by the 
amount of detail.  I thought Pete had mentioned that the memories were more 
vague than that.
