Dorothy Kilgallen was one of the first female syndicated columnist in U.S. newspapers after World War II. After JFK was killed she broke a big stories about Jack Ruby, the assassin of accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.
“The case is closed, is it? Well, I’d like to know how, in a big, smart town like Dallas, a man like Jack Ruby — owner of a strip tease honky tonk — can stroll in and out of police headquarters as if it was at a health club at a time when a small army of law enforcers is keeping a “tight security guard” on Oswald. Justice is a big rug. When you pull it out from under one man, a lot of others fall, too.”
