Tomorrow I’ll be speaking at the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia in a discussion of Larry Sabato’s new book, ‘The Kennedy Half Century.”
From the PR Newswire via Sacramento Bee: “Experts Gathering to Mark Historic 50th Anniversary of JFK Assassination.”

Here’s a new way to learn about the assassination of President Kennedy. You don’t have to read books or watch YouTube documentaries
You can take an online course from Larry Sabato, professor of political science at the University of Virginia, and author of the forthcoming book, “The Kennedy Half Century.”
The course is available on the Coursera platform.
This should be fascinating event.
On Tuesday, the Sixth Floor Museum will hosting “Parkland Hospital: Trauma Room One Reunion,” featuring appearances by two doctors who treated President Kennedy after he was fatally wounded on November 22, 1963.
They are Dr. Ronald C. Jones and Dr. Robert N. McClelland.
With the Oct. 4 release of Tom Hanks’ “Parkland,” a motion picture about the hospital where President Kennedy died, the debate about the causes of JFK’s death will be revisited again.
The movie, starring Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, and Zac Efron depicts JFK’s death as the work of a lone assassin.
Dr. McClelland disagrees. He has said publicly that his observations of JFK’s wounds convinced him that the president was shot from two different directions and thus was the victim of a conspiracy.
Federal Judge John Tunheim will speak Thursday in Stillwater, Minnesota, about the challenge of declassifying government records related to the death of President Kennedy, according to the Forest Lake Times. It is rare opportunity to hear from the leader of the last effort to force the government to make public long-secret JFK records. Read more
I have to prepare a declaration this week for Morley v. CIA — my tedious but necessary lawsuit seeking disclosure of certain CIA records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
I’ve written most of the statement but I need to add more facts. Perhaps JFK Facts readers can help. Read more
The cinema of assassination has a new entre.
In The Monitor of Brownsville, Texas, native son Tony Zavaleta, talks about his independently made JFK film that will open in November.
One of many fascinating features of the debate about the causes of the JFK’s assassination is the evident anxiety of some people who defend the theory that one man alone killed the president for no reason. As the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination, their anxiety is growing.
Exhibit A: Dale Myers and Gus Russo attack me for having the temerity to say that the CIA is obligated to release all of its JFK-related files.
Exhibit B: Professor John McAdams is in a tizzy by my review of the trailer for “Parkland,” the new JFK film produced by Tom Hanks, that will be released on October 4. In my post, I predicted that “Parkland” will not deal with the troubling issue of an October 10, 1963, CIA cable in which five senior CIA operations officers said Lee Harvey Oswald was “maturing.”
This is “buff stuff,” writes McAdams in an email. Read more
A regular reader calls our attention to C-SPAN’s interview with Buell Wesley Frazier, a co-worker of Lee Harvey Oswald’s in November 1963. The interview, recorded at the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas in July, will be broadcast this weekend
This reader says that the Frazier interview shows he “would not have been a good prosecution witness [against Oswald] given that he says ‘No way’ the rifle was in the package Oswald brought to work that day [November 22, 1963]. Package was too short. ‘No way it would fit.'”
More grief for my inclusion of Professor John McAdams’s website on my list of best JFK Web sites.
“Case Closed on Jefferson Morley,” says Len Osanic. That epitaph suggested with Posnerian certainty (and credibility) that I am somehow unreliable as a source of information about the JFK story. Then Professor Jim Fetzer fingered me on Facebook as a shifty character, which did not overly concern me. He’s expert at those sorts of things and entitled to his opinions.
But now comes Lisa Pease, a writer who has added to my understanding of the CIA, to read me the Riot Act about McAdams. I respect Lisa for her wisdom and passion, so I listened carefully.
