I had the day off, the wife was working and instead of paying the child care lady, I was at home with the preschooler. 4 families in our building and interior hallway into each living quarters. We left our doors open most of the time. Lady down the hall was also looking after her child, came to my door, nervous giggle and she said that it was just announced on TV that the president had been shot. I turned on my set and the programming was being interrupted with news bulletins and speculations. Soon the news people were all that there was on the screen.
And I too saw the live TV broadcast when Jack Ruby shot Oswald.
For me to believe that Oswald acted entirely alone will require more evidence than I have seen thus far.

The history channel has a program on now but it is biased , I think the files are to be opened as they were closed for 50 years. This being the 50 adversity of the shooting. I was at home with a cold.

I have never met this fellow, but have read a lot of his writings. He has done some interesting books.

I was in math class. 10th grade I think. It was announced on the PA system and radio broadcast feed. Remember reading Jerry Bledsoe in the local paper. He recently has written for Our State Magazine.

I was 4 years old and at home when my Mom told me. It is one of my first memories in life.

Stationed on the USS Kitty Hawk in the South China Sea. We had just been buzzed by a Russian badger. The Fleet Admiral came on and announced it. Not a single sound on that ship for the longest time.
