Yes your probably right because even for someone like myself knew that 20 minutes would be pretty much impossible for a newspaper......thanks
I found that it would be hard to aim in the direction of the limo, let alone aim high enough to hit the president.
I have heard about the possibility of a shot from the storm drain for many years and even met the daughter of a woman who said she and friends witnessed someone firing from the drain opening. But the mother refused to be interviewed and I have been unable to substantiate this story. I have always hesitated to discuss the storm drain because many years ago one of the earliest and best researchers, Penn Jones Jr., editor of the Midlothian Mirror, was ridiculed incessantly. Debunkers said he was claiming that Kennedy was shot "from a sewer." I have myself stood down in the storm drain which is located a mere six feet from the point of Kennedy’s fatal head shot. I could comfortably stand in this drain (I’m not too tall being 5’7”) and it would have been an easy pistol shot to a person sitting upright in an open convertible. Some witnesses said that one of the shots sounded hollow, had a ringing sound to it. And it could have been possible to leave the storm drain via a large drain pipe which connected to an opening behind the wooden picket fence on the notorious Grassy Knoll. But did a shot come from this drain? At the moment, there is not enough evidence to state yes, but it remains an interesting premise.
An interesting sidebar to this speculation is the fact that in the 1980s a section running vertically down the Grassy knoll collapsed. The Dallas Street Dept. found that someone had dug up a section of this drain pipe and cut away a piece about 2 feet X 4 feet and replaced the cut section. But instead of welding the section back, whoever did this simply replaced the section on the pipe and over time it gave way causing a collapse at that point. There was some speculation that perhaps an assassin had stashed his weapon in the drain pipe and was retrieved surreptitiously at a later date. This drain was connected to the storm drain at the foot of the Grassy Knoll.
JFK Jr. had announced to close friends he was planning to enter politics and run for the Senate from New York but he had not made this public. This, of course, would have placed him head to head against Hillary Clinton, who just announced she was going to run for the New York Senate seat. Since, Hillary was the first American First Lady to attend the secretive Bilderberg meetings, she obvious was the choice of the New World Order gang. Against this backdrop we learn that JFK Jr, by all accounts an excellent pilot who had always flown with an instructor in previous flights, sudden flew alone that night, got lost and dove into the sea. However, an early Coast Guard press release stated the FAA had last heard from him when he was 13 miles out on approach to the airport. This means he was not lost and was descending for a landing. Moments later, his plane dropped off the radar screen and was not recovered for two days despite the fact that the type of aircraft he was flying had an emergency transponder. Something caused his plane to lose altitude very rapidly. And according to the National Transportation Safety Board’s investigation report, the fuel switch on his plane was in the “off” position. Was he assassinated? The evidence to me indicates… most assuredly. How remains a mystery.
sorry for the rant but I feel a little better now.
First, it was all the same sound of shots, but her concentration on photographing JFK may have impaired her hearing enough that she can't say it sounded like a firecracker.
Second, since the last two shots were fired quickly, not evenly spaced, and sounded like firecrackers, it could be proof that TWO different weapons have been used in the assassination. Like a rifle and a handgun.
While walking through an antique swap meet I found a box of newspapers. Just glancing at them I noticed a few nice John F. Kennedy assassination papers and what I thought was a normal "Robert F. Kennedy Shot" paper. Being an avid Kennedy collector, I bought the box of papers.
When I got home I started to catalog the papers on my computer. Eventually, I got to the "KENNEDY SHOT; CONDITION CRITICAL" paper. I looked at the date, November 22, 1963, but I thought it should have been dated June 5, 1968 -- Robert Kennedy shot. At first I thought it was a typo but as I looked closer it wasn't Robert Kennedy shot; it was John kennedy shot.
What was even stranger was the the paper below this "Kennedy Shot" paper, in the box, was a "Kennedy Slain" paper of November 22, 1963. It was a Los Angeles Herald Examiner 2:00 pm edition. Yes, both were the 2:00 pm editions with different headlines. I couldn't believe it so I called the offices of the Herald Examiner to ask about the papers. In conversation with two different departments and the City Desk, no one works there now who worked there 26 years ago. The only information I could obtain was that if the important news was happening in the middle of the printing they would "stop the presses" and change the headline if necessary. They said this is probably what happened.
It would have been more logical to chose the one right in front of the road, where it becomes straight for some distance before going under the overpass.
