Reopen the JFK Assassination Case in Texas


The research I’m doing for the new book I’m working on has led me to more questions than answers. When I get irate about how an important film like my grandfather Orville Nix’s camera original footage of the JFK Assassination could be missing, I find even more missing evidence or unanswered questions or “government destroyed records” that moves me through the gauntlet of emotion from frustration to incredulous to incorrigible. How can a government with all the resources the United States has and had make this many mistakes?

Do we fear people will make fun of us as “conspiracy theorists?”

Do we trust our government implicitly even after seeing what has happened in other countries since the dawn of time?

Do we not care about how history is written or for the future of our society?

The next blog will be about more key questions and missing evidence for which we must find answers. First things first though. We are not allowed to complain if we don’t take action.
