This week brought a burst of interest in the tagged posts on George Hickey, the late Secret Service Man who was falsely accused of firing the fatal shot that killed President Kennedy. I was glad to see people are getting the true story.
The bogus “Secret Service Man Did It” conspiracy meme (it doesn’t deserve to be called a theory) has persisted since the publication of a foolish book called Mortal Error in the 1980s. The meme was revived for the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination by REELZ Channel and an Australian cop who should know better. And Malcolm Gladwell should definitely know better.
