‘Onward through the fog’

A faithful reader writes about one name dominating the “What Readers Are Saying” box.

“I am aware of the site’s policy and did notice the discrepancy this morning. Frankly, I didn’t really mind, but I know you try to be consistent.

Back in business!

JFK Facts has completed its migration to new servers. This will enhance our capacity to gather information about the JFK story. I’ll be posting more on what that means soon.

As I stated last week, some comments may have been lost in the server transition. There is no way to retrieve those comments.



Site construction in progress

Over the next four days, JFK Facts will be migrating to new servers so as to upgrade its capabilities and its appeal.

While various delicate tasks are accomplished, there will be no new posts. You will be able to comment on existing posts but these comments will not be saved for posterity and will not be seen when the site resumes normal activity next week.

Meanwhile, I’m interested in hearing from people who want to do JFK Big Data as well as people involved in social/venture capital. Just drop me a line.

And for the 2nd week in a role the story of cops gravitating to the grassy knoll in the aftermath of JFK’s assassination came in at number 5.
