Asked in 1992 what he expected to find in still-closed JFK records, Judge replied,
I’m sorry to report that John Judge, founder of the Committee on Political Assassinations and tireless activist for open government, has passed away. John had a stroke this winter but had improved to the point where he was moved to a rehabilitation center yesterday where he suddenly died last night.

While liberal news outlets have ignored the story so far, the conservative Fox News network (and a Fox News station in Bangor, Maine) are respectfully reporting that “Skeptics of JFK assassination official version say they’re barred from 50th anniversary.” Read more
AllGov, the government watchdog site, reports that Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings says he will meet with John Judge of the Committee on Political Assassination (COPA) about the Dallas’ controversial planned commemoration of JFK’s assassination.
The commemoration of a catastrophe is a tricky business, we learn from today’s Wall Street Journal.
With the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination approaching in November 2013, Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings has boldly come out in favor of observing the event without talking about its causes.
“For 40 minutes, we need to be focusing on the man, not the moment 50 years ago,” he said.
