    I can't believe it's been 20 years. Walked out of there on Saturday night without a clue what was about to happen. Got a call around noon on Sunday with the news. There was a Cowboys game, so those folks got the news in the press box. Still makes me sad.

    I remember there was a very good AJR story on them from around 1996 or so. I think it's in their archives.

    Holy cow. The Cowboys had nine wins in early December? That was a long time ago.

    Possibly the greatest picture ever taken from a hard news perspective.

    Gun in frame.

    And since it was done on film... Man, what a shot.

    Everyone knows that image was Photoshopped as part of the JFK conspiracy, and Jackson was in on it. The unaltered photo is below.

    In all seriousness, I liked the Times Herald, a scrappy paper in competition with the bigger Morning News. One thing that always struck me is how much its design mirrored the Orlando Sentinel, from the headline fonts to the byline type.
