    Re: Secret Service almost killed LBJ accidentally after JFK assassination

    Wow. That is crazy!

    A slight side track, but if he had shot and killed LBJ, do you think we'd be facing more conspiracy theories regarding the deaths of two presidents in quick succession? I mean, would people believe the president was shot 'accidentally'?

    I suppose, we're fortunate to not have had to face that situation.

    I'm sure Oliver Stone would have made another movie out of it.

    I know you have the sarcasm smily up, but sadly, yes, there are people who have suggested it. And why not? Vice presidents have a lot to gain if the President were to be removed from office.

    Yes.

    Then there is the one that Aristole had him knocked off for his wife's charms.

    Hello President McCormack! He was probably behind it from the get-go...

    If you guys have never seen it, I'd highly recommend watching the Peter Jennings special on the JFK assassination. You can get it from Netflix. In about 90 minutes they pretty much completely debunk every myth from Stone's movie.

    For instance, the "magic bullet" wasn't magic at all. The theory originated from the incorrect assumption that JFK was seated directly behind Governor Connelly, when in actuality the Governor was something like 12 or 18 inches inset from him. The "magic bullet" was a perfectly straight shot though JFK into the Governor and they prove this with a 3-d computer-generated recreation of the crime scene.

    Also, in the Stone movie they state that Oswald "wasn't any good" as a marksman, while his military record states quite the opposite.

    Lastly, some argued it would be impossible to get off the number of shots Oswald did in the amount of time he had. This is also a myth. In fact, a very elderly man did it quite easily using the same rifle as Oswald AND taking the time to carefully aim between shots.

    Here's a link to the Netflix page:

    Damn, would have been nice for LeBron to get shot. Not killed, but right in the knee.

    Would have been interesting conspiracy theories. Would we have to assume that someone on the Cavs made the shot?

    Is there anyone on the Cavs able to make a shot?

    That's the question.

    Maybe Oliver Stone can solve this for us.
