JFK Author Larry Hancock on the Radio This Evening at 6PM Central
mentioned, I'm afraid I will be blogging only infrequently for a couple
of months as we go through the edit process on the new covert warfare
book - the publisher would like to have it out in January and that means
a lot of work right now. I did want to mention that I will be going on
internet radio with Jeff Bushman against this evening, for a full hour.
It will be live at 8 pm Central at
its archived for anyone who wants to check in later. I'll be on for a
full hour this evening. I also wanted to give everyone a bit of an
update on the JFK Lancer Conference coming up in November.
conference will be considerably larger this year, both in terms of
length and number of participants - you can find the details on the JFK
Lancer web site - we began receiving requests to participate in the
2013 conference last November and have been working on reviewing
proposals and scheduling since the end of last year. The focus of this
conference is on taking a new look at the evidence officially presented
against Lee Oswald as the shooter and sole participant in the crime. We
have a number of professionals lined up to address the forensics and
ballistics evidence, presenting what has been learned including
considerable information that was either filtered or simply not
presented to the official investigations. We will also have critiques
of each of the official investigations based on what has been revealed
by the past 50 years of research, in particular the new information
surfaced beginning in the 1990's with a vast amount of oral history work
and document releases.
addition a number of speakers will be offering brand new research,
literally never presented previously. If anyone thinks that nothing new
exists on the case - well the conference should dispel that notion. We
always try to maintain a real balance in the conference participants,
covering the range of interests without too much redundancy and also
offering the attendees the chance for personal dialogs with authors they
have read or specialists the have read about - of course nobody will
agree with all the information presented but its good to remember that
nobody every learns much new by only talking to people with whom you
elaborate on that point, one of the things going on at this years
conference will be a number of focus group discussions on a wide variety
of topics. We have recruited researchers specializing in those
subjects to moderate the focus groups and Debra Conway has obtained a
separate conference room for that. She has also organized cash
breakfast and lunch buffets so that attendees will have to option of
eating while listening to and participating in some of the structured
discussions. That is going to be important this year given the crowds
expected in Dallas and the lines at restaurants, etc. Beyond that we
will be running conference activities from around 8 am in the morning to
9 pm each evening. If you are coming, rest up in advance as we will be
keeping you quite busy.
final point on Dallas this November, I know some folks are concerned
about access to the Plaza. Debra has pursued that issue with the Mayors
office for months, starting last year. Although its pretty clear that
Dallas still has some work to do and decisions to make about the crowds
at its official ceremony, we have been assured that once that is over,
the Plaza will be open to the public on November 22. And of course our
normal walking tour of the Plaza area will be a couple of days later on
Sunday, so attendees should have no concern about access to the Plaza
during their time in Dallas.
