Nov. 22, 1963, is another Day of Infamy in U.S. history. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy on that date already has prompted a flurry of stories about the killing in Dallas, especially about the shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald. Of course, the conspiracy theories abound. They will last forever.

But many of the writers and other investigators of the killing are convinced that Oswald acted alone. Oswald is a story in himself. He was a person who never “fit in” anywhere, a misfit if there ever was one. He was a loner who failed in everything he tried to do. He craved attention and that was one of the reasons he killed Kennedy. He was politically insecure, embraced communism, but even was a failure when he went to Russia to live. He also tried to get to Cuba, a country that he praised as the place to live, but he never was able to get there.
