JFK Killing Gets Second Life Treatment; JFK Not So Fortunate
This is more Andrea Grimes' bit. But as November 22 is nigh upon us, a company called Avatar Promotions is celebrating by setting up in Second Life a virtual Dealey Plaza as it appeared in August 2007 and as it looked on the Friday John Kennedy was gunned down in downtown Dallas -- it's virtual tourism. And, for a fortunate 40, it's also virtual time travel: Says here that this week, the company will invite to the site a select handful for a "re-enactment of the event." Because nothing says Thanksgiving like watching a president being assassinated on the Internet. --Robert Wilonsky
