The People vs.|
Lee Harvey Oswald
Dec 14 -
The Warren Report was released nearly 18 months after the assassination. It contained nearly 1.3 million words.
As those words describe, on Nov. 22, 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole assassin of President Kennedy.
He shot the President three times from the 6th floor of the School Book Depostitory.
he raced down the several staircases wearing his Invisi-Shield so as not to be seen by others in the stairwell and
ate his lunch before replacing his invisi-shield for his Speedy-Shoes and made his way back to his boarding house (presumably to get his second gun of the day).
Armed with his new gun, he must have had a lot of pent-up anger still from murdering the President, because he shot
Officer Tippitt in daylight on 10th Street. Numerous witnesses identified Oswald as the killer. Numerous witnesses also said it wasn't him, but that's besides the point.
It was only after committing one assasination and one murder that he felt like seeing a movie. But he didn't want to pay for it, so he walked right into the Texas Theatre.
The theatre teller called the cops and with classic Dallas Police efficiency, twelve squad cars showed up
within minutes to arrest him for both crimes! Job well done, Dallas Police! No need to question it, you've got the right man!
Twenty years late, due in large part to public disrest about the assassination, the government assigned the House
Committee to re-evaluate the days events. The House Committee found, based on acoustical evidence, that there was a
second gunman located near the grassy knoll that day.
However, when the government turned to the FBI and CIA to
coroborate this new evidence, they failed to comply and stuck with their original story of the lone assassin.
To this day, the government only accepts the lone assassin theory.

Raining Red Tape
Isle du Bois
Site 55. We were given directions to a state park by a fellow with a
heavy Texan accent. Sounded like he was saying "Wild Boys" or "Old
Boys". Neither one sounded like a place we wanted to stay at. That is,
until we realized it was the region's lack of French skills that changed
the name from "Eel du Bwa" to "Isle de boys". Oh la la!
