41 Years Ago Today

"From Dallas, Texas, the flash, apparently official -- President Kennedy died at 1:00 PM Central Standard Time, 2:00 Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago. Vice President Lyndon Johnson has left the hospital in Dallas, but we do not know to where he has proceeded. Presumably, he will be taking the oath of office shortly and become the thirty-sixth President of the United States."

-- Walter Cronkite

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
35th President of the United States
29 May 1917 - 22 November 1963
