50th Anniversary of the Assassination of JFK

John F. Kennedy was assassinated fifty years ago today.

I was six years old when Kennedy was assassinated. I can remember walking down a hallway at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Gridley and hearing two teachers talking about Kennedy being shot. I would have been in first grade.

For a biography of JFK, I recommend An Unfinished Life.

I also recommend The Sins of the Father; this is the story of JFK's father.

Note to self, I still need to read biographies of Bobby and Teddy Kennedy.

On Wednesday night, Sharon and I watched Tom Brokaw discuss his news special, "Where Were You the Day JFK Died?" on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart Show.

On Thursday, I listened to Bill Simmons' podcast with Chris Connelly and Chuck Klosterman to review the many theories being presented at the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination.
