You won't believe how much Rose looks like Jackie.
And an aspiring comedian.
It was 50 years ago today that John F. Kennedy was gunned down in Dallas. It was a sound that reverberated around the world
At the Dallas Museum of Art, a massive Robert Rauschenberg collage titled Skyway will catch any visitor's eye -- a bold combination of colours and arresting pop culture images are a brief summary of the early 1960s and one man: John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
Fifty years ago in Texas, U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. It was arguably one of the most influential events
I don't remember whether I had Latin or math or biology that period. For sure, none of us knew, then, that we were living through one of the defining moments of 20th century American history. At 2:30, there was static on the PA and the room hushed. The principal, trying unsuccessfully to keep his voice calm, said, "President Kennedy is dead. I'm sorry ... School is dismissed."
"Pretty much every news camera in the world is going to be focused on Dealey Square on November 22," said our tour guide, as he led us into the lobby of the most visited tourist attraction in Dallas. The Sixth Floor Museum located on the corner of Elm and Houston streets. The window on the sixth floor where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly shot John F. Kennedy, the President of the United States, in 1963.
The bullet that blew apart the magnificent head of John Kennedy passed within
inches of his wife,

I happened to be the only Canadian journalist in the underground garage of the Dallas police station that bright Sunday morning two days later, when JFK's accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was gunned down by Jack Ruby.
Here we go again! Another conspiracy theory -- this time by a woman who has written a 600-page book (Me and Lee) claiming she and Lee Harvey Oswald were lovers and that instead of assassinating John Kennedy in 1963, he was trying to save him.
