Happy New Year, marksw. Interesting that you found and revived this thread. When I was a kid, I believed wholeheartedly that JFK's assassination was carried out by a conspiracy. It was only after some of the autopsy photos became public -- and I was a much better educated and informed adult -- that what's on the Zapruder film became obvious to me.
It unmistakably shows that the right front portion of JFK's head explodes outward and upward. It is a massive exit wound. The fatal shot came from somewhere behind JFK. Once I realized that the cottage industry that had sprung up about the assassination was essentially lying to me, it became much hard to trust any conspiracy theory.

(Where are you, Miss Beazley?)
I just want to say that i really agree with what a lot of you are saying. I believe that Oswald was the only shooter, and obviously shot Kennedy from behind. I don't really believe there was any sort of conspiracy, i think that the evidence speaks for itself. When you look at the Nix film, it's a lot easier to see the president's lean back after the head shot, so it makes sense that the shot came from behind. I'm writing a term paper on the assassination and reading a bit of what has been posted before seems logical and sensible, not thrown around and played with.
Our president was shot dead, that is a huge tragedy, it's something that people should make stories up about or demand that we lie about evidence to make it seem like there was a conspiracy. I've read all about these conspiracy theories; they all question every little thing, trying to make it look like there had to have been a conspiracy.
I just have one question:
Did the assassination make JFK look like a better president than he was thought to be?
