New Theories Suggest Kennedy Wasn't Shot

DALLAS—A controversial new book about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has raised questions not about the role of a lone gunman or a conspiracy of shooters, but about whether the late president was even even shot at all.

While the book, Outside the Crosshairs, does not dispute the fact that a massive portion of Kennedy's skull was separated from his head during the 1963 Dallas visit, it maintains that the president suffered fatal explosive- cranial trauma through means completely unrelated to gunshots.

"Certainly extreme force was involved in this tragic death," said Dr. Horace Musashi, the book's author and a professor of computer science at Mount Union College in Alliance, OH. "However, none of the available photographs or recorded footage provides even a shred of evidence that an actual bullet did anything to Kennedy's body. As scientists, therefore, we must consider all other possibilities, no matter how much they challenge the status quo."

Musashi himself favors an explanation known as the single-massive-spike-in-blood-pressure theory.

His brain would have herniated (partially forced through the opening in the skull for the brain stem) before any blood would have blown the skull apart.

Unworthy for the onion.

However, maybe Nixon's people did a trepan while he was sleeping and stuffed in a package of firecrackers!

the Warren Commission probably would have told us the cause of death was a cerebral hemorrhage.

Good try though. We go by science, unlike the Warren Commission and the 9/11 Commission.

you know what really happened: Governor Connally leaned over to him and whispered in his ear, "Jack, fifty years from now an extreme right-wing faction of the Republican Party called 'tea baggers' are going to claim you as a conservative."
