    No way a clod like Oswald did it himself (unleash the hounds!)

    You go through more security checks getting into an NFL game than they apparently had in that hallway that day.

    "I love talking about Kennedy. I was just down in Dallas, Texas. You know you can go down there and, er, to Dealey Plaza where Kennedy was assassinated. And you can actually go to the sixth floor of the Schoolbook Depository. It's a museum called... 'The Assassination Museum'. I think they named that after the assassination. I can't be too sure of the chronology here but...anyway they have the window set up to look exactly like it did on that day.'
    "And it's really accurate, you know, 'cause Oswald's not in it."

  5. Strangest moment in live TV ever -- the president's getting waked, everybody in my house is dead silent and weeping, and the accused assassin gets whacked on live TV.
    Another coinkydink on a weekend apparently full of them.
  6. And with all the technology we have today, you would think it wouldn't be too much to ask to have all our assassinations on live TV

    From the Kinks "Give the People What they Want"

    Give the people what they want
    You gotta give the people what they want
    The more they get, the more they need
    And every time they get harder and harder to please

    Give 'em lots of sex, perversion and rape
    Give 'em lots of violence, and plenty to hate
    Give the people what they want
    Give the people what they want

    When Olswald shot Kennedy, he was insane
    But still we watch the re-runs again and again
    We all sit glued while the killer takes aim
    "Hey Mom, there goes a piece of the president's brain!"

    Give the people what they want
    You gotta give the people what they want
    Blow out your brains, and do it right
    Make sure it's prime time and on a Saturday night.

    What was the mood of the country when Oswald was assassinated?

    Relief? Glee? Disbelief?
  11. Absolute conviction that he'd been silenced by whoever They were.
    Other than that, another freak show in a numbing weekend. One thing Stone gets right is that you could have sold the country anything that weekend.

    I wish I had been alive to witness the history. Not to see JFK die, but to see how it all went down.
