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
