    Where do you stand on the Kennedy assassination? Do you believe Oswald acted alone, or do you subscribe to one of the other theories floating around out there? From the second I learned about the shooting I began to have suspicions, hypotheses, ideas and the like, which I and assorted friends discussed at length time and again. I have not seen all of the evidence. I have no idea whether or not anybody else ever did either, but very highly doubt it.  I will say that my suspicions never involved Russia, Cuba, commies or foreign powers.

    We were still in the throes of McCarthyism. The investigation, evidence collection and preservation and the like, such as it was, was conducted by such credible luminaries as the Dallas PD, Jedgar's thugs and probably some secret service types with clandestine assistance from the corporatist lackeys of the Criminal Imperialists Association. The one possible key witness was conveniently snuffed on Public TV while not merely in police custody but inside police HQ with a defective on each side, holding him by the arms. Many statements were made and retracted by many sources.

    All I can believe is that, like with why we were really in Nam (or Iraq), we shall never know the truth with anything approaching an acceptable level of certainty.

    It's Start Your Own Country Day again. What kind of topography would your country have? What kind of climate? What kind of government? I'll pass on that one

    Are you an out of the can cranberry sauce aficionado (like 90% of Americans) or do you like the REAL thing? (I think I may have revealed where I stand on this issue.) I can tolerate the canned stuff, but it must be pointed out the Vikings, upon landing, discovered cranberry bogs, named the place Hellaland and got the hell out. Cranberries are not generally fit for consumption except as part of a Cosmopolitan.

    Cell phone conversations on planes? Yea or Nay? Major nay. In fact, I'd like to see them restricted in a great many other places too, but we need to rely upon the innate consideration for others and self restraint of the US populace for that, which means that there is no respite except for locales where an official prohibition is strongly enforced, such as jury boxes and some parts of some libraries.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
