Whether it was one bullet or two, a lone gunman or a conspiracy, there is one indisputable fact about Nov. 22, 1963. The president — John F. Kennedy — was killed and it was an event that rocked the world then and continues to be a source of controversy to this day.
When we think how times have changed, in many ways they have changed very little. The Bulletin’s issue of Nov. 26, 1963, carried an editorial on the president’s death, a portion of which is quoted here. It is as true today as it was then.
