There are tons of John F. Kennedy books, movies, videos, YouTube channels, websites, and documentaries.. All of them claim something different, all of them shed a little more light–sometimes a little less–on the events that took place 50 years ago this Friday in Dallas. Everything is murky when it comes to this story.. Three shots, with multiple entry wounds and exit wounds–and three people being shot? Possible. Probable? Magic Bullet Arlen is gone to his grave, but he said it was a lone assassin with a lone miracle bullet, twisting and turning in the wind and the bones of a deceased President..
There are times during these anniversaries that we glorify an exhausted leader. But Kennedy was flawed, may have at least attempted to steal an election in 1960–then again, Nixon did, too. His now praised actions in the Bay of Pigs affair really didn’t go the way history tells it exactly did....
There is so much allure of Kennedy–so much grandiose praise.. so many conspiracy theories.
But Stephen King perhaps summed up best, perhaps, in his book 11/22/63. A section went: “For a moment everything was clear,and when that happens you see that the world is barely there at all. Don’t we all secretly know this? It’s a perfectly balanced mechanism of shouts and echoes pretending to be wheels and cogs, a dream clock chiming beneath a mystery glass we call life. Behind it? Below it and around it? Chaos, storms. . A universe of horror and loss surrounding a single lighted stage where mortals dance in defiance of the dark.” How true..
How very true.
On to the news of the day–normally worse no matter how much better we want it to be.

The amazing failure: SPIDERMAN the Broadway musical to conclude this year. It never could have worked, in my opinion.. Fan boys aren’t going to go to a Broadway musical–and not everything should be a musical. Of course BUFFY fans may still say the musical episode was the best of the show, but I will say that the same fans who liked BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER are not the fans who like Spiderman.. This musical was simply doomed by the onset.
And what made the likelihood of it failing even more clear: Regardless of the risky gamble that that Jeremiah Harris took, it still ended up being the most expensive musical to produce. People go to Broadway for RENT, and CATS. Not spiders.
