When I made the post, I wasn’t ready to delve back into assassination research. Why should I? It’s impossible to read all the books, learn all the theories, and check out all the facts about the heinous crime committed in Dealey Plaza that November day. Besides, no matter how much I read or learn, I’m never going to have all the answers.
Still, I soon found myself caught up again in the stories of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson. I found myself intrigued once more by claims of conspiracy, rumors surrounding J. Edgar Hoover, and questions about the death of former attorney general, Robert Kennedy.
Despite a busy schedule, family obligations, writing deadlines — and a need to occasionally stop and sleep — I couldn’t let go of the assassination story.
Although in the previous post, I jokingly pronounced that it was probably “Colonel Mustard in the library with a pipe wrench”, that’s not how I really feel. Surprise, surprise, right?
Even now, after all these years, I’m reluctant to state any unequivocal opinions about JFK’s death. Yes, I’m entitled to my own opinion, and no, nobody really cares what I think, so why not come out and say it?
Of course, I think my thoughts will probably become clear as I share some of the book titles I’m currently reading or re-reading. Although I have very definite thoughts about who was responsible for killing John Kennedy, I don’t fully understand how it happened. I maybe have a good grasp on why, but I can’t put all the pieces together. There are still too many unanswered questions in my own mind for me to start spouting off and sharing opinions with others.
I’d be very interested in discussing this topic with others who are still searching for information and answers. I’d also like to get book recommendations on the assassination and related topics.
For starters, here’s what I’m reading now, bouncing back and forth from one book to another:
I’ll be writing more about the assassination in future posts, listing additional resources I’ve found, sharing interesting bits of information I’ve learned, and most likely, asking a lot of questions.
