This smile story reminds me of the famous photo of LBJ "smiling" (in the photo you are looking at his back/side face view-it does appear to be a
smile) at his aide, his aide appears to be WINKING! And Ladybird has a smile as well. This occurred while standing next to a devastated Jackie Kennedy
within hours of JFK's murder as LBJ was being sworn in as the new president. I wish I had the savvy to post this pic, but I don't-maybe someone else
By the way, I do believe that common sense dictates factions within the government did this crime, but I try real hard to maintain objectivity. In
that vein, I am currently reading Bugliosi's 1600 page tome on the matter. It really is an excellent read, thouroughly researched and indexed. I
think Jim Marrs (whose books I really enjoy) does himself a disservice to criticize Bugliosi's book. I'm 400 pages in and thus far "Bug" has
barely even entered the speculative realm. (When asked by George Knapp if he read it-Marrs basically said no-kidding that it pulled a muscle when he
tried to lift it-then proceeded to call it crap! And my main dissapointment with Crossfire is that it is not indexed in the text-only at the rear of
the book-making it virtually impoosible to locate Jim's sources on a point to point basis) Point being, it's definitely the best minute by minute
account of "that day" I've read, and I've read all the majors (Legacy of Secrecy arrived one week ago-that's next).
Now to criticize a small point in "Bugs" book. He has the picture of LBJ being sworn in, but in his pic both LBJ, Ladybird AND the Aide are striking
a super solemn pose! This is classic, and must have been taken a split second after the happy/smiley/winky pose. I would absolutely love to see these
2 pics side by side!
