Abraham, Martin and Ossie

You've visited the Book Depository, the Grassy Knoll and the X in the street at least a hundred times. You've listened to all the facts, bought the memorabilia and stood in the window. But the conspiracy still lingers: Did the government dye John F. Kennedy black to hide him from us or not? The only way to decide is to soak up some more knowledge. This weekend, see JFK as portrayed by Ossie Davis in Bubba Ho-Tep. It's much more entertaining than that other JFK movie where Kevin Costner put on some round-framed glasses and tried to act skinny. (Why was that movie 30 hours long? Does every Costner film have to be longer than Dances With Wolves?) The movieâ€â€which offers the only JFK conspiracy theory that makes any senseâ€â€plays midnight Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane. By the time the credits roll, you'll have your JFK mystery solved, and Bruce Campbell (of Evil Dead fame) will have kicked some mummy ass as old-and-busted Elvis. Tickets are $8. Call 214-764-9106 or visit landmarktheatres.com.

Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
