Louie Steven Witt, are you still out there somewhere, alive? Would you tell me if you were? You know you're back in The Dallas Morning News this morning, but only as a ghost. I wonder if you really are a ghost yet. I can't find you with Google, which may mean ... well, we know what it may mean. It's ... More >>
The probate court of the Old Criminal Court Building was a little disjointed on Friday. The judge, lawyers and witnesses were all dressed in 60s garb -- skinny ties, strings of pearls, a pillbox hat or two -- while back in the gallery the standing room-only audience was snapping pictures on their sm ...

Wanted to go ahead and let you know, since apparently nobody else is going to do the story, that Robert Groden, the Kennedy assassination author, has won yet another legal victory in his fight against the city's years-long efforts to muzzle him. And, sorry, certain commenters here, but that's what ... More >>
Judith Segura thought raising the $1 to $2 million in private donations needed to restore Dealey Plaza before the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination would be a cinch. It wasn't. "It's been a lot harder than I expected, frankly," Segura said. "There was nobody who didn't agree completely ... More >>
We've known for a while now that the city will keep the the 2013 commemoration of John F. Kennedy's assassination "classy," we just haven't known exactly how. We still don't, but we now know that it will involve a fairly significant touch-up to Dealey Plaza. The architecture firm Good Fulton & Farr ... More >>

The official City of Dallas JFK Assassination 50th Anniversary Celebration Committee, named in a story this mo ... More >>
This is not the first time Dwaine Caraway has stood up for Skyline High School. Three years ago, back when the Dallas ISD first toyed with tinkering with its magnets, the District Four council member -- and Roosevelt grad -- went to the board of trustees and demanded they keep their hands off Sky ...

Dallas is playing to its City of Hate stereotype for assassination's anniversary.
Speaking of a Dealey Plaza's redo ... I've had a copy of National Geographic Channel's JFK: The Lost Bullet sitting on the desk for a week; haven't watched it yet, but there's time -- it doesn't air till Sunday at 8 p.m. And while it's said to show Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone on November 22, 1963 ...

Photo by Nick RalloDealey Plaza, subject of my feature story in this week's paper version of Unfair Park, is a monument to horror, a locus of global grief, a vortex of paranoia and all that stuff. But on a spring weekend when the weather's good, it's also just kind of a cool place. Is that allow ... More >>
Kennedy assassination author and conspiracist Robert Groden says the city's out to get him. He may be right.
Gird your loins: The conspiracy theorists -- by which I mean the truth-tellers, of course -- are coming to town. Beginning a week from tomorrow, the Adolphus Hotel will host JFK Lancer's November in Dallas 2008 confab, scheduled to run for three days to coincide with the 45th anniversary of John Ken ... More >>
Patrick Michels Dick the Editor makes way for Joe the Plumber.
