    I was there. I was nineteen years old working for an insurance company in downtown Dallas. I was standing on the corner of Elm and Akard street. I barely saw them pass by because of the huge crowd, just remember the roar of the motorcycles and a pink blurr (Jackie was wearing pink). Walked a few short blocks back to the office where I worked on Akard street. Went to the basement lunchroom to get something to eat. Did know what happened until I got back to my desk. Everyone was crying. About an hour later, our superviser said we were closing for the day and I went home to watch the coverage on TV.

    The new book A Cruel and Shocking Act: The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination really lays it all out--the outrageous whitewash fraud of the Warren Commission, Oswald in Mexico at the Russian and Cuban embassies right before the assassination, etc etc. America got hoodwinked again, same as it always was. Even Bobby Kennedy believed it was a much larger conspiracy.

    If any book has "Secret History" in its title you can safely disregard it as junk.

    Gerald Posner's Case Closed and Jim Moore's Conspiracy of One answered ALL of my questions about the assassination.

    There were a few items Moore left dangling (dictabelt recording for example) and Posner found the answer.

    It is telling that 2 books not subscribing to the hysteria concur and bolster their conclusions, and yet in the conspiracy world, it seems no two authors agree on anything. If there was a conspiracy, and all these sleuths were hot on the trail, shouldn't all their efforts be converging in regards to conclusions rather than diverging ?


    One telling remark:

    Congressman Gonzalez was asked why the bubble top was not used on Kennedy's Lincoln that day and the answer, despite the grim nature of the topic, left me chuckling:

    "Because it had stopped raining."

    Sometimes the simplest answers are the truth.

    A reminder. DBSTalk is not a political/conspiracy discussion site so if you see any future responses disappear there is your simple answer.

    I won't be watching since I'm sure it will all be the same warmed over propaganda that won't portray the TRUE Kennedys. Lots of skeletons in their closets.


    No conspiracy theories, just lots of untold truths about the family and how things were done. Let's just say JFK was not the person the media made him out to be.

    I was in Fort Jackson, SC attending Army Basic Training, I too was on KP duty when an ashen-faced Mess Sergeant announced the shooting. In an ironic twist of fate, I later lived in a loft adjacent to the Book Repository building. I drove over the "X" on the street marking the spot of the killing every morning for about three years.

    Funny though, I don't recall what I was doing the day McArthur died, although I seem to recall I was still in Fort Jackson.

    Huh. First time I've ever communicated or met someone who was there. Interesting.
