This month marks 50 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas.  In the last half-century much has been written about Kennedy, his presidency, his legacy, and his assassination.  Based on the number of new books on JFK, it seems historians, political pundits and conspiracy theorists still have plenty to say about the man and the circumstances surrounding his death.
