Happy 11/12/13!!! :)

Yes, friends, it's one of those oddball dates again like 10/10/10 or 11/11/11 that we've had recently. They say some people are getting married on this day even though it's a Tuesday. Ah, well. :)

I did see the JFK special last night for an hour and taped the rest. It's on again tonight. Good home movies and new pix I hadn't seen before. It's amazing to me how he managed to get out of bed in the morning with all that pain. The steroids he was taking to control his Addison's Disease ate away at his spine when he was just starting out in the Senate. He underwent risky back surgery, extra-risky because Addison's Disease makes one prone to infections. He did indeed contract an infection and was given Last Rites at least twice. He'd been at death's door so many times from childhood on that he was pretty fatalistic about assassination attempts, and that's why he didn't worry too much about them.

PBS is also covering the assassination on Wednesday night at 10:00 EST on Secrets Of The Dead. And the cable channels have several specials in the next few weeks, so check your local listings if interested.

Today's my day off and I'm going to see Thor 2: The Dark World! I'll have a review up sometime in the next few days if you're curious. :) I hope to see the Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier trailer. The Thor movie is King of the box office. Marvel is rakin' it in! DC, take note.

"Secrets of the Dead"? Doesn't sound exactly, well, serious, does it? More like something out of the tabloids. I hope that isn't the direction they're taking with this.

Apparently they changed it to another special last night, but I KNOW I saw that promo! :)

I've seen that show before and it goes into a lot of forensics and other things to try and unravel mysteries.

I taped the last half of last night's special and liked seeing the focus on the media coverage at the time. It was the biggest story most of those reporters would ever cover.
