[sent November 22nd]

Today is November 22nd. On this day in 2002, Christopher O'Hearn, head of
content development at the Associated Press Television News in London,
announced the restoration and digital re-mastering of the so-called
"Muchmore film", one of only three films that show the assassination of
John Fitzgerald Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. Those of us who are old enough
to remember where we were when President Kennedy was murdered. I remember
I was lying on my stomach, firing an M1 rifle. It was at the Great Lakes
Naval Training Center outside of Chicago and my company of recruits was on
the rifle range, our first class of the afternoon. A voice with a decidedly
Southern drawl came on the loudspeaker saying "Now cease fire. Cease firing
on the firing line. President Kennedy has been shot and killed in Dallas,
Texas. Now commence firing on the firing line. Commence firing on the firing
line." When the class was over we were ordered back to our barracks, the
remaining classes having been cancelled. Boot camp is a very isolated
place. We had no access to newspapers, television, radio, or even calendars.
We may as well have been on another planet for all we knew of what was going
on in the world. Could this be war? We had no idea. It was only at lights-out
when someone said "This date will go down in history, November 22nd." that I
realized it was my birthday.
