Kennedy 50th Anniversary Assassination Newspaper
I picked up a special reprint of the November 23, 1963 Dallas Morning News today. It was at the check-0ut stand at Homeland. The 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination is November 22.

My Sunday Oklahoman
Sometimes, I just sit and look at the newspaper on my sidewalk and I wonder; I wonder how long it’s going to be there. It feels so old world these days. Some things are never going to change. Like how I use exactly 3/4 a packet of equal in my coffee and pour the creamer on top and don’t stop until it’s formed a little hill. And, I never stir it. I just let it all seep in and then I drink it. And, then I pour a second cup, but I never drink it. It just sits there until it gets cold, which is when I get up and take a shower. This will never change. I have taken my coffee like this for 15 years.
Something else that won’t change is the difference newspapers made in my life. They were a primer for me no matter my age or stage.
“Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans – born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace.” — President Kennedy
