    It's not insane rambling Bachmaniac crap.

    And of course one helluva lot of Americans didn't believe the Warren Commission conclusions.

    Between the "magic bullet" and the increasing accuracy of what would have been rapid-fire shooting, shooting hobbyists generally rejected the idea of a single barrel doing it.

    But none of that mattered. Hundreds of people try to kill presidents. There's loony bins full of them. And the very rich could easily enough make nasty stuff happen. Happens every day, somewhere.

    One hopeful part of the aftermath is that Oswald's widow and his kids were only very lightly harassed. Looks in public, a phone call here and there. Sneaky stuff. No bullets, no firebomb, no kidnapping. No beatings. She remarried quickly, a couple years later.

    Americans treated this Russian girl, Marina, 99.98% just like anybody else. A whole lot of people also prayed for her. Imagine being in her shoes.
