I Wanna Be Sedated

The famous Pulitzer Prize-winning photo of Ruby shooting Oswald has always fascinated me, being a fan of true crime photography. I always thought it should be more gruesome than it was. I mean, this guy is getting shot at close range. Then I read what photographer Bob Jackson told The Investigative Journal, a radio show. "I sure did think it was strange not to see any blood whatsoever. I stayed...well after Oswald was taken away...and I never did see any blood, not one drop." Greg Szymanski, the show's host, wrote that Jackson's insight "adds fuel to the fire of researchers who claimed Oswald was never shot by Ruby, but...killed by CIA operatives in the ambulance after Oswald was sedated against his will." Whoa. I think I'm going to have to ask him about that. An Evening With Bob Jackson is presented by the Sixth Floor Museum, 411 Elm St., Suite 120, at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Call 214-747-6660 or visit jfk.org.
Wed., Feb. 28, 7 p.m.
