ALL THE NEWS THAT IS NEWS
NOVEMBER 22, 1963 LIVES ON IN INFAMY On November 22, 1963 downtown Dallas, TX offices allow us employees to go outside to view and cheer President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade. Just before noon, we stand 3 rows deep as JFK’s jet black Lincoln limo motors in front of us. Afterwards, I turn around and enter the small Greek restaurant for a bite to eat. Then, a guy swings wide open the front door and screams: The President has been shot! All of the businesses in Dallas, TX close their doors for the weekend on that fateful Friday.
