It was just lee harvey .hard to believe , but simple when you look at it. why the need for conspiracy ? just one idiot with a rifle.

was watching the CBS sunday morning show which was devoted to the assassination. i was only 4 when it happened but it's one of my earliest memories and remember being terrified that the adults around me were shaken. when you're a little kid you need parents and teachers to be rocks, but they are only people after all.

sorry - you don't think it was the cigarette smoking man?

Oswald was no idiot, as I was saying last night. He was a bit of a nutter but he was a possible Russian agent and total true believer Communist among other things. He also supposedly tried to assassinate some US general retired a bit before the JFK shooting. God only knows....but the whole thing is just
beyond bizarre but Oswald knew what he was doing in
all instances. He wasn't totally off his head....I mean, he had major political and insurrectionist motives and tendencies.

- share the Anniversary month (my B-Day) w/ this

- A couple points I dwell on :
... of course JFK - the very Icon of the Youthful New Frontier - was actually quite ill - no stranger to facing death - on cortisone & steroids & painkillers - & a bit Reckless.
- & Jack & Robert Kennedy pretty much were in the business of making enemies right & left - so in a sense, it would've been stranger if it *didn't* happen!
...& I just want someone to slowly & credibly explain the whole Jack Ruby thing to me - just for a start - ?!?...

thought that was a Roger Corman film!
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:17pm dale:

the giant gila monster had those wacky teenagers and their hot rods and rock and roll. good movie for it's kind, almost up there with 'them,' but not quite

  Tue. 11/19/13 6:20pm LovecraftDude888:

kinda like those old lunchbox thermoses? glass lined insulated thermos. My favorite was the corman movie with the talking crabs.

People just have a hard time accepting that a loser can kill the president on his lunch break with a mail order rifle that he bought using a fake name. This is America where anything is possible.

...I gotta turn the News down & listen...
  Tue. 11/19/13 6:22pm LovecraftDude888:

I don't, I'm saying it was absolutely Oswald. But his whole history is like, suspect.....if you read enough about his bio. His whole Russian sojourn, etc. C'mon.
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:24pm dale:

lovecraftdude - i had a 'glass lined' thermos, vintage picnic plaid and all. it got dropped and dented and the plastic top came off. it was trash so i took it apart and it was a glass ball mason jar, surrounded by fiberglass insulation and in the metal body. the plastic screw top was a press fit into the mason jar.
  Tue. 11/19/13 6:25pm sorry:

with both oswald and ruby it was purely opportunity . right time, right place and guns.
  Tue. 11/19/13 6:25pm LovecraftDude888:

Dale: ha! like taking apart a golf ball or whatever. Funky! I miss like, my Land of the Lost lunchbox and such. I want mine back!

growing up we had a picture of kennedy on the wall. but my mother had a habit of buying frames and leaving the pictures they came with inside. had a photocube (remember those?) with a hot blonde chick in a bikini - asked my dad who that was and he said 'how the hell should i know?'
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 6:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

That Dr. Who :
...it's better than the idea sounds : ) ...

- this dates me: When I was still a hairless babe, my family got a kick out of picking me up & showing me a picture of Eisenhower & telling me it was me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 6:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...reminds me of KennyG's book about media's responses in the moment to tragedies...

Cheers! - Here he is about it on Colbert :
- the book is "Seven American Deaths and Disasters".

Red Dwarf did the best job at addressing the Kennedy Assissination.
  Tue. 11/19/13 6:45pm James T. Tague:

Kennedy's assassination was not a conspiracy, it was a coup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 6:46pm Andrew Waterloo:

I don't think it's too crazy that gloves would disappear or that a man could walk into a building and up stairs without leaving clean finger prints. It's not crazy to think that a lot of that evidence was smudged or destroyed in the confusion afterward.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 6:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- really - ?! I musta missed that Red Dwarf !

On TV, crime scenes are full of fingerprints; in the real world, often none can be reliably detected.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 6:49pm Andrew Waterloo:

That episode of Red Dwarf was award winning.
  Tue. 11/19/13 6:52pm James T. Tague:

LBJ arranged to have Kennedy killed, straight and simple.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 6:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- okay - it's 'Tikka to Ride' :
...we'll see if I can find the whole episode online !
...chuffed just that there's Red Dwarf I ain't seen !

...as Jim Leher's new book 'Top Down' relates - the top was - uh - down
- certain security was relieved
- the motorcade slowed down
- the marksmanship (presuming Oswald) was - extraordinary...
Avatar Tue. 11/19/13 6:58pm dale:

lerher asked the security detail 'are you gonna take the bubble top off?' they said, yeah, it's a nice day. jim lerher killed jfk
