I visited Dallas about 15 or 16 years ago. I went right over to Dealey Plaza, of course, and stood behind the picket fence atop the grassy knoll, which is where the second shooter could have fired from. (There had to be some reason why those cops ran up the knoll with their guns drawn after JFK’s limo sped off.) The first thing I noticed was that the fence was old and weathered and that some of the slats were missing. Maybe things have changed since but I naturally wondered why Dallas authorities hadn’t maintained the fence as it looked on 11.22.63. On one hand the spruced-up Sixth-Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is a big tourist attraction; on the other they’re content to let the grassy-knoll fence fall to pieces. Obviously a conflicted mentality.
