Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

52-years since the assassination of POTUS JFK


I am surprised that this topic is not splashed all over the interwebz.  Maybe it is getting to be like the assasination of POTUS Abe Lincoln, just pages from a requisite high school history class.

There are many of us who remember the JFK assassination very well; for some of us, the anniversary is a day of reflection.  Time will erase all of us, but hopefully the pages of recorded history will endure.

It was a crazy world back then.  I suppose the world is no less crazy today.

I didn't post about it this year. Mea Culpa...
I have studied it for many years, though. And even visited Dealy Plaza 11/22/92, and met with some witnesses.
I believe the conspirators are waiting for those of us who think conspiracy to die.
Hell, most references to Booth fail to mention the conspiracy, and its been 150 years...

Stay Well,
