A Conversation for The Assassination of John F Kennedy
J Started conversation Nov 22, 2005
Is, I believe, the 42nd anniversary of the shooting that killed John F Kennedy. With each passing year, it becomes a more and more mysterious moment in history.
Maybe by the 43rd, we'll be able to see things more clearly.

I am reading more and more of your stuff and liking it better all the time!
You have a very nice, unornamented style and a sense for just enough detail.
You did however miss one of the things that JFK and Abe shared in common. After JWB ran and hid in a barn (not really a warehouse, but was possibly being used for storage), the barn was set on fire to chase him out. At that point, Abe's assassin (like JFK's) was also killed before he could be brought to justice.
The shooter's name was Boston Corbett, if memory serves.
