On this day in 1963 JFK was killed in Dallas, Texas. We who were alive at the time remember when and where we heard the news.
There's been much speculation on what really happened and how Kennedy ended up dead that day. Everyone knows the theories. There was a guy in my high school who was a big JFK conspiracy theorist, Jim Kinsella. He was the first person I knew who made allegations that the official story was all lies. While some of these theories are outlandish, there's some compelling evidence that things weren't what we think. My friend Tomaidh posted a link to this now-deleted History Channel episode:
My take is that we'll never know the truth.
Stephen King's book, 11/22/63, has come out. Strider read it already, natch. She said it was a fun ride.
Hard to believe it was 48 years ago. My my, nearly a half-century can pass so quickly.
