It has been 48 years since President John F Kennedy was killed. I was in the second grade. My school was just a 3 room school house. The principal came room to room and the lead us to our school buses. We had 1 hour before school was over so we were happy to leave early. We had no idea why we were being sent home.... Will never forget that day.

I found an article that is very good about the JFK Assassination and on this 48th anniversary of that horrific day... I think this author's insight is pretty good. RK

LBJ being swore in with Jackie in her blood stained suit

The Kennedy
By John McAdams
© 1995-2010

**"He didn't even have the satisfaction of being killed for civil rights . . . . It's — it had to be some silly little Communist." — Jackie Kennedy, on hearing that a leftist had been arrested for her husband's murder.**

It's the most controversial case in modern American history. Did Lee Harvey Oswald kill John Kennedy by himself, or did a conspiracy do it? And if a conspiracy did it, did the conspiracy include Oswald?

If you are like most Americans, you believe that a conspiracy killed Kennedy. And if you are like most Americans, you have heard a vast number of bogus factoids about the case.

This web site is dedicated to debunking the mass of misinformation and disinformation surrounding the murder of JFK. If you are believer in Oswald as a lone gunman, you are likely to enjoy this web site, since most of that misinformation and disinformation has come from conspiracists. But if you are a sophisticated conspiracist, you likely understand that the mass of silly nonsense in conspiracy books and documentaries does no service to the cause of truth in the assassination, and simply buries the "case for conspiracy" under layers of bunk.

Regardless of what you believe, several web sites, mostly conspiracy-oriented are worth checking out. And you may also want to check out my list of recommended books on the assassination.

What sort of evidence is there?

"God, I remember it like yesterday. I was in 5th or 6th grade and they called all the kids in from the playground and we all gathered around a little tv set they had brought in."

5th grade in a little town in the u.p. .... "all you people in tv land, I will wake up your empty shells...peak time viewing, blown in a flash, as I burn into your memory cells".... p.g.

First grade, Dearborn Heights; our teacher came back from the office, crying. I was little, I didn't get the importance of what happened. I was mad because my kid shows and cartoons weren't on TV.

4th grade art class. After the teacher made the announcement, she told us to turn our drawings over and write the date and event on the back. Wish I still had mine. My mother may still have it somewhere.

BTW, I moved to Dallas in 1972 to go to college. Once there, I visited pretty much every location having to do it.

Oh, and when Oliver Stone was filming 'JFK' in Dallas, they painted Texas School Book Depository back on the building that Oswald shot from. I drove right by it every morning on the way to work. It was eerie.
