Casey Quinlan: Turns The Heat Up On the Conversation--JFK

Hats off to JFK Assassination researcher and author Casey Quinlan--expert at turning up the heat and firing up interest and attention on this often forgotten subject.

Well, he has to, he is a high school teacher and believe it or not the kids don't always want to listen.

He has to be an entertainer.

But isn't that the truth for all of us.............

Living in the 30 second take away world how are we still going to get the average citizen to listen the the most important murder mystery of the last century.

It is like stars in the sky--there is just too much minor information for the average individual to see--where do I focus.

Don't get me wrong.  The research is extremely important.  "It is science and the truth has to come out,"  that is what one JFK 2016 Lancer Conference attendee told me.  I was lucky enough to sit at his table.  "I am a scientist, that is what we deal in, the truth and it has to come out and that is research."

"You can't deny the truth."

The folks that were at the conference this year were impressive in their knowledge.

Seriously, for me, just a regular person that has been interested in the JFK assassination forever--I get mixed up in the details.  It has to be a little more straight forward.

Here is where Casey Quinlan comes in.  An Excellent speaker he makes everything interesting as he tells about the reasons and factions that set an environment and attitude for the demise of JFK.

Actually, he talked a language that I could understand.  Call him Oliver Stone but he made a story that I could remember.

So here's the thing for me........honoring the tremendous research and hard work put into the JFK murder mystery but at the end of the day the facts have to be sold to the American public.

Enter Roger Craig.........

His story is jaw dropping and compelling.....You can't get him out of your mind.

Take the example of Ed Hoffman--Casey Quinlan co-authored a book on this very important witness.

Is it important to humanize the story to get the message across.

It takes so many talented interested individuals to get this story out.

We can't forget it and thank you to Casey Quinlan to take time to educate the high school kids  and me about this horrible event--the assassination of our President.

There is almost nothing more important.

More than one person at the conference mentioned in chatting they hoped more young people would be there.  Everyone is dying and the story will be lost.

Point well taken.

Some of us may have a short attention span but we are still interested.

Thanks, Casey, for your hard work--I felt so lucky to get to talk to an actual JFK researcher.  Thank you for taking time to chat with me.

Go Shockers!
