JFK Conspiracy

They're trying to get me to the point where I'll believe anything about the JFK assassination.

It depends on which program I saw last.

The Lee Harvey Oswald documentary on Frontline last night was pretty convincing. Lee was a loner. It wasn't his nature to hook up with anyone else. He didn't trust other people.

So I get to thinking that maybe Oswald did do it by himself.

Then here comes Oliver Stone's JFK movie. Stone says it was a big fat conspiracy. But we have to keep in mind that he used a lot of so-called facts that he just flat made up, so he isn't all that convincing.

Peter Jennings' ABC special last night had a bunch of animations and diagrams. He lined up little JFK and Connelly figures, just like they were in the limo. Then he shot a laser beam deal thru their bullet holes, and made the Magic Bullet Theory look goofy.

So that put me back to believing it was just Oswald.

Whichever program they have tonight on the Kennedy assassination, the theory in that one will be what I'll believe next.

Maybe it's a conspiracy to confuse me.
