Remembering the Assassination

Today marks the 45th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. An excellent feature in the Dallas Morning News points out that the number of living eyewitnesses to that unfortunate event is rapidly diminishing.

For readers outside north Texas, I would recommend that any visit to the area should include a trip to the Sixth Floor Museum. While I might quibble with some of the characterizations in the exhibits, the museum is really very well done. One might be warned, however, that there is always a cadre of assorted oddballs and conspiracy theorists out on Dealey Plaza ready to chat up or sell literature to anyone willing to listen or purchase.

That is not to say that all of those with conspiracy theories related to the assassination are oddballs. For those who want to read a credible account of the assassination from the viewpoint of a researcher who does not think that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, I would recommend this work by Josiah Thompson.

I don't know if I can post links in comments, but modern blood splatter evidence shows two bullets hit the former President, and they were both from the 6th floor of the depository. If I can post the link, more can be read here: http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2008/11/13/jfk-forensics-tech.html
