While I’ve written about the free-speech implication of the plans to commemorate the assassination of President Kennedy with an invitation-only event in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 2013, I have scanted what is actually going to happen at the event.
It sounds like it will be tasteful and avoid all reference to the causes of JFK’s death.
From the organizers’ press release:
“The 50th” will start at 11:45 a.m. on Nov. 22 with the tolling of church bells throughout the
city and a moment of silence. Renowned Presidential historian David McCullough will give
special readings from John F. Kennedy’s Presidential speeches. The internationally
acclaimed, 73-member U.S. Naval Academy Men’s Glee Club will perform, and area religious
leaders will offer prayers and a benediction. A ceremonial flyover will conclude the
memorial, which is outdoors and will last approximately one hour.”
