Over the years I have looked at lots of documents, read magazine and newspaper articles and watched countless documentaries on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I can't count the times I have been in Dallas and with all of that, I had never actually visited Dealey Plaza, the site of the assassination.
On our trip to Texas this past weekend we (my wife and I) stopped in to see Q and his family. After treating us to a nice sushi dinner Q was kind enough to play tour guide and take us to Dealey Plaza.
After seeing it in videos and photos I always thought it was a much larger area. From a sniper's point of view this is an extremely confined space with the route bottle-necking right into the point where the shots were fired.
I, being the opinionated old fart that I am, have my own theory as to how many shooters there were and that opinion was made even stronger once I visited this place.
I won't bore you with my theory but I will say that I was surprised by the fact that even now, people still come to this spot to see it. We were there about 10:00 p.m. and there were several people walking around, taking photos and looking behind the area of the grassy knoll.
