JFK Assassinated 50 Years Ago Today
« on: November 22, 2013, 01:27:51 pm »
Friday, November 22, 1963. President Kennedy was shot in Dallas right about now (12:30 CDT). I was 6 years old and in first grade. It was probably the "defining moment" of my childhood -- an event that was burned into my memory and the memories of many others about my age.

Wow, fifty years . . . and there are still questions in some circles about what really happened.

Most of the conspiracy theories have been pretty well shown to be highly unlikely over the years, but there are still people who push their favorite.

*nods*

I think the most ridiculous one was the one that claimed the shooter hid in the storm drain.

I'm not sure we know the whole truth or ever will.

I've been saying for years (in response to conspiracy theorists) that I think the grassy knoll did it.

LOL. It was probably mad because of all the extra activity on and around it that day and lashed out.
