Grassy Knolls, in Dallas, Bowling Green, & Our Imaginations

A Communist killed the president 54 years ago this month and a left-winger assaulted the senator last week. It flatters some to believe otherwise, so some believe otherwise. And if 54 years, and the release in the past month of thousands of documents, cannot unravel conspiracy theories surrounding Dallas, then the likelihood of journalists and others ideologically committed to an alternative telling of a much more minor event in Bowling Green accepting the truth appear slim — and Slim’s in Texas (presumably on the grassy knoll near the Texas School Book Depository in Dealey Plaza).​ Read my article @ the American Spectator on how more than a grassy knoll links the attacks on politicians riding in a convertable and on a lawnmower tractor.
