Default Killing Kennedy

By Bill O'Reilly
The first paragraph states he is not a conspiracy guy, he wants America to know the history...

He made the tale, Killing Lincoln, come alive so with that in mind

I'm starting to remember that day when sister Rose Marie broke into tears in front of my class.
We left school very early that dreary Friday knowing the President had been shot. As I turned onto Hickory Street from Washington Avenue the Bells started the death knell, St. Anne's, the Catholic Church, The First Church of the Nazarene, St Paul's the Episcopal church all were chiming.... I looked back down Washington Avenue and all my classmates were knelt in prayer and cars had pulled off to the side of the road, drivers and passengers dismounted hands over hearts and tears streaming down faces..

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania..Still a blue collar steel town was feeling the shock, fear and immense sadness for a lost President...

I just listened to "Killing Lincoln" on audio book while driving to Bismarck, ND. It was GREAT, and it was easy to see why many H.S. classes are using it in history. Going to download "Killing Kennedy" today (I think it is available now) for my next long drive. I recommend the first book to anyone that likes history, it brought out many things I didn't know. To my knowledge, nobody has disputed the facts he put forth, and of course there are still some unanswered questions, which he goes through at the end of the book.

Great read...or listen

JMO,
Dave
