« Hump Day (plus one) Highlights by Stacey Harwood | Main | November 22, 1963 [by Jim Cummins] »

Good job, Laura! Perfect. I may steal your comments to rebut my brother, who still subscribes to the CIA/Cuban conspiracy...

Laura, I want to believe you but how do we know you are who you say you are? I've seen a recent photograph of a woman who looks remarkably like you having a cup of coffee with an FBI agent in a Dallas Starbucks. Have they got to you? They have, haven't they? Were you a White House intern in 1962? Didn't you testify before the Roseanne Roseannadanna Warren Commission? I thought so. Come clean, woman! Aaarrgghh! Get away from me with those needles! Aaar--

Dear L: This is a very clear-headed take on the whole matter. All of the assassinations and attempted assassinations from that era and later---JFK, RFK, MLK, George Wallace, Reagan, The Pope, John Lennon---all seem to involve that same type of nobody/loser. I've always mostly agreed with the analysis of events that puts Lee Harvey Oswald as a lone actor. But I have to admit that about 10% of me believes that he had accomplices.

Laura .You are such a stunning reporter/because you have the poet talking in you Like Stephen Crane and Louise Bogan.
I think it was more than one shot by more than one person..and forensics agree..although historians do not

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
