Vincent Salandria, a lawyer and JFK conspiracy theorist par excellence, sits down to break bread with his lifelong antagonist Arlen Specter, the inventor of the Single Bullet Theory.
It’s a fascinating story, told with restraint by Robert Huber in his article “Vince Salandria: The JFK Conspiracy Theorist” in Philadelphia magazine,
A visit to Dealey Plaza
And Huber tells this amazing story about the second time Salandria visited Dealey Plaza with fellow researcher Shirley Martin in 1965.
“They drove all night, making it to Dealey Plaza in Dallas at about 6:30 the next morning. As they walked around the site of the assassination, a big man with a beard, wearing sandals, probably in his mid-50s, came out of a building and approached them.
“’How’s Mark Lane?’ he said to Vince. Lane, who would become well-known for his assassination research, had already written a few magazine pieces questioning the Warren Commission. Salandria and Lane had exchanged information.
Vince didn’t answer the man.
“‘Do you know what this is?’ the man said, gesturing to the buildings around them. ‘It’s a WPA project. Tell Mark Lane to put in his next article that President Kennedy, a socialist president, was killed in a socialist plaza.”
“The man moved off, leaving Vince with no idea how he’d known who Vince was.”
