6th Floor TSBD views.

These images are from the Secret Service recreation of the assassination taken soon after. There are a few reasons why I believe the shots wouldn’t be taken with the limo on Houston St. First, there is very little of the presidents head showing over the top of the windshield making this in itself a really difficult shot, also you would have to “find” the target as soon as it turned off of Main St. onto Elm. Also the president doesn’t become really “visible” until about half way down Houston St. Really giving for a “one-shot” opportunity, if he misses, the limo likely speeds down Houston st. and out of sight. If there was a real assassin on the 6th floor it seems the best opportunity would be as the limo begins the turn, allowing for many shots at extreme close proximity, and even if the limo speeds off, a clear line of sight down elm st.

“The Last Breaskfast” – Ominous shadows hang over another last meal.

“It is one of the Twelve,” he replied, “one who dips bread into the bowl with me.The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”  -Mark 14:20-21

Exactly two weeks before that fateful day, Willie Augustus Somersett [ http://tinyurl.com/kk7empo ] an FBI informant in Miami records a conversation with radical and extreme right-wing racist Joseph A. Milteer. [ http://tinyurl.com/o8ne8w7 ]

SOMERSETT: I don’t know, I think Kennedy is coming here on the 18th………

MILTEER: You can bet your bottom dollar he is going to have a lot to say about the Cubans, there are so many of them here.

SOMERSETT: Yeah, well he will have a thousand bodyguards, don’t worry about that.

MILTEER: The more bodyguards he has, the easier it is to get him.

SOMERSETT: What?

MILTEER: The more bodyguards he has the more easier it is to get him.

SOMERSETT: Well how in the hell do you figure would be the best way to get him?

MILTEER: From an office building with a high-powered rifle

SOMERSETT: You think he knows he is a marked man?

MILTEER: Sure he does.

SOMERSETT: Boy, if that Kennedy gets shot, we have got to know where we are at. Because you know that will be a real shake, if they do that.

MILTEER: They wouldn’t leave any stone unturned there no way. They will pick up somebody within hours afterwards, if anything like that would happen just to throw the public off.

In JFK’s 1039 days in office, he provided 1039 different powerful and highly motivated people, 1039 different reasons. President Kennedy knew he was a marked man. Although there is no “prophetic” prediction from the President himself, the idea undoubtedly hung in the air all around him.

thIt was thursday night, JFK was less than 18hrs and 50 miles from Dealey. The President retired to room 850 of Hotel Texas. In the morning he would have breakfast and give a quick speech to the Texas Chamber of Commerce.

LBJ and other important Texans were to attend. The event was covered on local TV. There are some generally interesting, and ominous tones to the event.

JFK being introduced to the crowd of 600+ guests. Quite a grim, and sadly, an accurate prediction of things to come.

The President enters the Crystal Ballroom

With hindsight, this particular song from the Texas boys choir is just plain creepy.

The Eyes of Texas are Upon You!

The eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the live long day.
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
You cannot get away.
Do not think you can escape them,
At night, or early in the morn.
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
Till Gabriel blows his horn!

Mrs. Kennedy’s entrance into the ballroom. (Killed it)

JFK at his best in a classic Kennedy moment.

The crowd almost coaxed him into doing it.

Sadly we never got that chance. JFK was gunned down in his prime, and the official story of the “lone gunman” is still forced upon the American people.

As a wise man once said “A mistake is only a mistake, if you refuse to correct it.”

Ohio Schools Training Students For Civilian Drone Jobs

Originally posted on CBS Cleveland:

CINCINNATI (AP) — Some Ohio schools are preparing students for a boom in the drone industry once the federal government, as is expected, allows civilian unmanned aircraft to fly in U.S. airspace.

The Federal Aviation Administration estimates as many as 7,500 commercial drones could be flying in national airspace within a few years, and has until 2015 to present a plan for safely integrating drones into U.S. airspace.

At least two Ohio schools — Sinclair Community College and Kent State University — are training students for jobs using the technology. Like the University of North Dakota, Kansas State University and others around the country, the Ohio schools aren’t waiting for the go-ahead to ready students for employment in the industry.

“Our job is to be sure we are preparing the workforce to meet the jobs that are coming,” said Deb Norris, vice president of workforce development and corporate services at…

The first two photos were taken last winter in the Cleveland Metroparks. The third was taken in 2011.  I really wanted to post a winter scene today. Right now it’s 50°F and all of our beautiful snow has melted. We’re still hoping for a white Christmas.
