jfk and the trolls

I just finished the book “A Cruel and Shocking Act” by Philip Shenon, about the assassination of John F. Kennedy

The bookstores and internet are filled with conspiracy theories about the assassination of JFK.

This book makes a reasonable case that there was no conspiracy; the shooting was the act of a single gunman.

It also suggests that most of the loose ends that feed all the conspiracy theories were caused by Chief Justice Warren’s desire to close the investigating commission’s report quickly, to put the nation at ease, and to spare Jackie Kennedy prolonged stress and discomfort.

Ironically, this was also the reason Jack Ruby gave for shooting Lee Harvey Oswald, feeding even more conspiracy theories.

All my excuse for showing a photo of JFK with a troll doll; get the real story here.

I design books, magazines, and other communications, that POP! I blog about stuff that catches my eye.
