THIS WOULD BE FUN, WASN'T IT?

THIS WOULD BE FUN, WASN'T IT?

If there ever was proof that time travel doesn’t exist, I always thought it was that folks haven’t bothered to time travel and see us. Wouldn’t you like to go back to a time and place in history and see how it was?

My spouse forwarded this story my way about a Massachusetts Institute of Technology student organizing a time travelers convention this weekend.

He figures it’ll be a one-shot, since there really only needs to be one.

So, if you’ve got one of those chronomobiles sitting in your basement, go fire it up and attend the conference.

As for me…

TOP 10 TIMES & PLACES I’D LIKE TO VISIT

o Texas School Book Depository Sixth Floor, November 22, 1963.
o Canton Airport on the day Thurman Munson should not have flown.
o Building of the Pyramids, ca. 3000 BC.
o Jimmy Hoffa’s last day.
o Marilyn Monroe Bungalow on the day she died.
o The seat next to Steve Bartman during the 2004 NLCS, Game 6 (so I could pull him back).
o Amelia Earhart’s last flight.
o Airport security in Boston and Newark on September 11, 2001.
o The Prophet Muhammad’s burial.

I'll come with you; you take the 6th floor of the book depository and I'll get behind the picket fence on the grassy knoll, and we'll finally figure this one out.

Well, there's no doubt that there was more than one shooter in Dallas that day; the gap in time between the shots that struck Kennedy is too brief to allow anyone shooting a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle to have made all the shots.

That isn't really the deal. It's who was supervising the whole thing that makes it interesting.

All I know is that Lyndon Johnson immediately became president and Gerald Ford, who served on the Warren Commission, eventually was given the presidency.
