    Shiv!! That's weird. Right now I am watching The Sixties special on CNN that I recorded, and I was just thinking the same thing. The reporters, everybody. Nobody ever stopped smoking no matter what. :doh:

    I saw a picture of Jacqueline Kennedy about 8 months pregnant, sitting on a boat, smoking. You don't see things like that anymore.

    Did you ever read that book by Norman Mailer about Oswald? It's pretty good.
