Dallas Morning News: City Will Never Truly Get Beyond Nov. 22, 1963

Dallas Morning News
Editorial

Fifty years is a relative blip on the grand timeline, barely a rounding error between your genesis point and the end of life as we know it. Yet in human terms, 50 years is longer than many life spans, past and present.

In Dallas terms, 50 years is five decades of exploration, examination and grinding introspection about what happened, and why, on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dealey Plaza.

John F. Kennedy’s slaying was a seminal event in our city’s history, encapsulating too much that came before and influencing much that would follow, and here we are. We have considered it, studied it, reflected and grieved.

It’s tempting to acquiesce after all these years, to step away from the pain and sadness and horror of a president’s murder on our streets, and say, finally: “Enough. We are past that now.”

That many of us have obsessed about this single moment for so long says something. Dallas today bears little resemblance to 1963 Dallas. Divisions and demarcations, fading away by the decade, were stark. Today’s politics may have troubling elements, but they are a shallow dive compared with the dangerous extremism then.

As the U.S. remembers the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination Friday, there is no shortage of conspiracy theories.

Depending on whom you ask, JFK was killed by the CIA, the mafia, Cuban exile groups, the FBI, southern segregationists or the Soviet Union.

The way author and attorney Craig Zirbel sees it, there are only two explanations for President John F. Kennedy’s assassination – either he was killed by a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, with no motive, or there’s a more complex theory, the Arizona Republic reports.

The Scottsdale attorney has written two books on JFK’s death: “The Texas Connection” in 1991 and “The Final Chapter on the Assassination of John F. Kennedy” in 2010.

He believes Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the assassination 50 years ago Friday.
