Of all the times in the world, today!

Of all the times in the world, I get an email this morning from half.com. They were telling me I sold Mary's Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace. Maybe the person just wants the post date, as today marks 50 years since JFK was shot down at 411 Elm Street (aka Dealey Plaza), Dallas, Texas. At the time I write this, "it hasn't happened yet" - it's only 7:10 in the morning in Texas. Can't go big or go home yet, Mr. Oswald. But wake up anyway - you are late for work. Five hours and 20 minutes from now, Dallas is expected to have a moment of silence in the area, as the (American, most likely) world will be at a theoretical standstill.

It's funny, in the sense that a book I read and subsequently sold, has transpired on a day where some people don't want to remember. It's a moment in people's lives that you just want to forget. Although it's an important part of the American zeitgeist,  the people must remember how the communities and cultures for formed - for better or worse.

No matter who you are, where you were, what you do, this event in history has affected the general population. Conspiracy theorists alike think one thing, scientists claim another, and history won't lie.

Cheers;
