This a video from my latest favorite band, Black Stone Cherry, a Southern hard rock group out of Kentucky. This song, "In My Blood'" is a tribute to regular, everyday (yeoman if you please) people who choose to serve their country, and the sacrifices they have to make in order to do so.  Worth a watch.

JFK Assassination PowerPoint
This is an expanded edition of the PowerPoint we viewed in class. I had to shorten it due to time constraints.

Brief Bibliography of JFK Assassination books
These books listed are valuable for what they DON'T do; that is, positing conspiracy theories. They feature solid, credible research based on primary source and released documentary materials, particularly the Lamar Waldron books. I tell the kids: If you are going to embark on speculation, at least speculate with the facts.
