  • John Leonard’s article in the New York Times regarding the JFK assassination
  • It was combined book review of Jim Garrison’s A Heritage of Stone and James Kirkwood’s American Grotesque
  • The headline was changed from “Who Killed John F. Kennedy? Mysteries Persist” to “The Shaw-Garrison Affair”
  • The deleted paragraphs from the first edition included these words:
  • “But until someone explains why two autopsies came to two different conclusions about the President’s wounds,
    why the limousine was washed out and rebuilt without investigation, why certain witnesses near the ‘grassy knoll’
    were never asked to testify before the Commission, why we were all so eager to buy Oswald’s brilliant marksmanship
    in split seconds, why no one inquired into Jack Ruby’s relations with a staggering variety of strange people, why a
    ‘loner’ like Oswald always had friends and could always get a passport – who can blame the Garrison guerrillas for
    fantasizing? Something stinks about the whole affair.”
  • Noam Chomsky aka Chumpsky on the JFK assassination
  • Chomsky believes strongly that Kennedy would have continued the same policies as Johnson
  • “There is a significant question about the JFK assassination: was it a high-level plot with policy implications?
    That’s quite important, and very much worth investigating. I’ve written about it extensively, reviewing all of the
    relevant documentation. The conclusion is clear, unusually clear for a historical event: no. That leaves the question
    open as to [who] killed him: Oswald, Mafia, Cubans, jealous husbands? Personally, that question doesn’t interest me any
    more than the latest killing in the black ghetto in Boston. But if others are interested, that’s not my business” – Chumpsky
