  •  Freshman Biology had hard to see demonstrations (12+ / 0-)

    on TV in the classroom. Mid-lesson the tape was stopped and the announcer said that the President had been shot in Dallas and may be dead. School was closed. The grad student who was the counselor in the women's dorm attached to the men's I was in had a fiance who was a Surgical resident at Parkland. A letter he wrote to her that afternoon described the scene when JFK was brought into the ER. His description of the wound and head trauma contradicted the "official version" from the Washington DC autopsies now accepted more or less as the truth.
    Another freshman in my dorm was a rabid Young Republican from Elgin, IL who initially expressed approval of the death until he was warned by several people that he was going to get beaten if he said  that again.

    Life is just a bowl of Cherries, that stain your hands and clothes and have pits that break your teeth.
