The excellent Vicki Leon, who pops in to comment on this blog from time to time, and who wrote Working IX to V, and The Joy of Sexus, today has an opinion piece on the assassination of JFK published in the LA Times.
It's very much worth reading.
Vicki also has a previous piece in the LA Times. She suggested that killers who do it for the notoriety would be less inclined if there was a perpetual ban on publicizing their crimes or their names. She uses as her example what happened to the guy who burned down the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus in 356BC. (It's the same temple that my heroine Diotima works at in The Ionia Sanction, and it was indeed destroyed by arson).
To find out what they did to him, here is Vicki's article.
