For all of us old enough to remember, it was on this day 54 years ago that President John F Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. Texas. It's a sad fact that I've seen nothing on the news or heard on the radio about this Day. But there's no shortage about who's groping who. I remember where I was when this news broke.

    I was just a kid, but I'll never forget that afternoon.

    As for who's groping who, well, as long as we're all focused on the show, no one knows what's going on backstage, do they?

    I asked everyone at work today, "what happened 54 years ago today in America?"

    Only person knew.

    I asked a shift full on Millennials, and I was actually quite happy that two people knew.

    I was 16 and in high school. The powers that be announced the shooting over the PA system and sent us home. No cell phones back then boys.

    I was surprised there was nothing in the news as it seems like it has been there for 54 years. Maybe releasing some documentation this year has absolved the 'news' from reporting on it anymore.

    I remember it well, I was in high school getting ready to leave for a college fair.  We were still in the locker room when the news came over our PA.

    I think the reason there is not much in the press because they are too busy talking about what the President's daughter wore to the annual turkey pardoning!
