      I've always been really curious of what could have been on that fateful day. It's been really great seeing all the documentaries airing in remembrance the 50th anniversary of his death. I think people are reading way to literally into the title of your article but I understand you are simply making a point that Dallas was a futile place at the time but terrible things happen everywhere and it could have happened anywhere. Hopefully our country won't ever have to go something like that again.

      Interesting article - I am not sure much has changed in the NUT category. I am from Dallas and while the state seems to be getting a bit more blue I think there is a similar hate in Texas for our current president.
