60 years and counting since the day the world stood still when JFK was killed

A photograph of JFK I cut out of Life Magazine a few weeks after his assassination has remained with me for a lifetime.

I was 13 when he was killed in Dallas on a day those of us old enough to recall it will never forget.

That photo shown in the photograph accompanying this article reveals John F. Kennedy as most of us who lived through that era remember him – handsome, impeccably dressed, and looking quite unlike any president this nation had known up to the time he was killed in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

With all the troubles our government has been experiencing, nothing really compares to the fracture in the nation Kennedy’s assassination caused.

Killing an American president – and he likely died due to a government inspired conspiracy – is the rough equivalent of an atomic attack on our way of life.

Wynn Resorts Denies Gattineri’s Claims, Files Countersuit

By Josh Resnek 

Several weeks back we reported Anthony Gattineri’s allegation that he was promised an extra $18 million by Wynn Resorts Rob DeSalvio in exchange for Gattineri’s approval of the Everett land deal where the casino is located, of which he was a part when the casino project was just getting underway.

He claimed he and DeSalvio shook hands on the deal.

Without that handshake, Gattineri asserts, the land deal for the casino would never have happened.
