20. Many years ago I picked up four or five...

that were popular at the time. Damned if I can remember the titles or authors.

None of them pretended to know the "truth" but did try to punch holes in the going story with such stuff as the grassy knoll, missing Zapruder frames, and the one that got me-- the FBI tested Oswald's rifle and their sharpshooters couldn't hit a barn wall with it.

My father brought one of those pieces of junk home from the war and that one we played with as kids had the front sight slightly askew and the bolt didn't seem to work right. The word was that they were all made that way so it's impossible to imagine Oswald, or anyone else, killing anything with that piece of crap.

Those were extraordinary times with fascinating people who learned their trades the hard way in a real shooting war and then a cold war; both of which could have meant the end the of the world as we know it, unlike the "practice" wars we have now. I doubt we'll ever know the truth of what happened.
