I have a thought- yes, the date 11/22/63 is a very significant date for someone living in the US, but what about the rest of the world? I hesitate to think that it is an important date in the rest of the world. I ask my fellow SKMB members who live outside of the US- is this a very significant date in your country? Does this date correspond with the assassination of JFK in your land? I also think that a lot of younger people really don't know what this date stands for.

The date had no significance to me whatsoever, I did not know the date of his assassination until after reading the book.

The question, to me, isn't whether or not he did it, it's did he act alone. I don't think he was the only shooter. I could be wrong. And before everyone else takes a whack at this dead horse, lemme tell ya this: unless YOU were in on it, or were there that day, YOU don't know either. No amount of books, speeches, investigation, theories, etc., will ever clear the smoke on this one. Sorry, Charlie, nobody knows (none of US, anyhoo), and nobody ever will. I don't care who's book you read or what you've heard--no use arguing it, cause you'll just be repeating something someone else wrote or said. If history has taught us anything, it's that it can't be trusted. To much hired B.S.

That's all I got to say about that.

Except: movie? I thought they were making some lame tv show with Franco.
I'm with you. I think Oswald was a shooter. When I see that film, no one can convince me that shots came from only one direction. But, like you say, I could be wrong.

Hey, sir!

You mean...the US and my generation are not the most important thing in the whole wide world? Dahm it. (But I am the prettiest, right?)


Point taken!

Even though Kennedy's assassination did affect the entire world historically, I just don't think that outside of the US that the date really matters to people.
The event was/is huge... and tragic and awful. But the date itself wasn't recognisable to me. When I heard the title of the book, I did not at first know it was going to be about JFK.
