Briefly On The Assassination

     Friday, November 22, 1963.  The circumstances surrounding the death of President Kennedy, fifty years ago, gives rise to a couple of brief thoughts.

     There are two separately interesting things to me -- the crime and the cover-up.  The crime was committed in a few seconds; the cover-up has lasted for fifty years.

     The crime was plotted in secret, but committed in the open air, in broad daylight, with a hundred witnesses, and yet we still can't be sure who did it.

     The cover-up has been orchestrated behind closed doors, but necessarily performed across the media and across the world, by highly visible speakers and writers and actors; there are a billion witnesses to this, and we can watch them do it, still doing it after fifty years.

     Amazing.  How do they pull these things off?
