Kind words from the FrontBurner blog of D magazine in a piece about the upcoming JFK Lancer conference on the assassination of President Kennedy.
“This year’s gathering, on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s murder, is scheduled for Nov. 21-24 at The Adolphus hotel. The organizers are expecting 350 to 400 people to attend, and it doesn’t appear to be a conclave of whack-jobs, either. Attendees will include academics, medical doctors, and JFK-assassination eyewitnesses, and Jefferson Morley — a veteran Washington journalist who’s written for Slate, the New Republic and the Washington Post — will be the keynote speaker. “We’re not, ‘the UFOs did it.’ We are a very conservative group,” conference organizer Deb Conway says.
Its always a relief to get straight news coverage of my JFK journalism. Personally, I have a strict policy against appearing at conclaves of whack jobs (though I admit I have covered the U.S. Congress). And I really don’t mind proving that I’m not insane. As I disclosed to Conway before accepting her invitation to speak, I haven’t been on a UFO in many years.
But seriously I’m looking forward to speaking in Dallas. As Conway told D, the Lancer conference will be “a way for people to better understand the documentation of the case, and where we are today compared to investigations in the 1960s.”
To that end, I will share some factual revelations about the CIA and JFK in 1963, including, I hope, newly declassified CIA records.
If you want to hear my JFK talk in person, please register now for the JFK Lancer Conference here. You won’t be disappointed. I hope to meet you in Dallas.
Here is a complete rundown of JFK Lancer speakers. (You’ll see I’m in good company.)
