Between now and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Nov. 22, we will read and hear a plethora of conspiracy theories, both new and old. Among them, a former and respected New York Times reporter, Phillip Shenon, will release a book Oct. 22 that claims certain “powerful people” influenced the Warren Commission’s investigation and final conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole shooter that day in Dallas.

As for this scribe, I first heard of the terrible event sitting in class when biology teacher, Mrs. (Norma) Mastin, told us through tears we could all go home early, and the reason why. Yes, I believe there was more than one shooter and several conspirators.

Word to the wise. Sorry about the cliché, but after nearly knocking each other’s mirrors off going down the narrow lanes of 4th Street in opposite directions, just a note to drivers to please be careful with all the digging, uprooting, destruction and construction going on between St. Joachim Church and Pine Street. And if you have to visit any of the medical services at the corner of Fourth and Pine, it is best to take the Pine Street entrance.

I was so frazzled one day I had to stop in BK Pharmacy and see the lovely Alice for some drugs, the legal variety of course...
