Even now and then, I forget what it is that I love about the internet.  Then, well, and then Chipper Jones goes and watches a movie from more than 20 years ago.  And tweets about it.Sure, I realize I'm late to the game on this one, but Wednesday night, the eight-time All-Star sat down and watched "JFK" on  REELZ and decided to voice his displeasure with, of all things, the findings of the Warren Commission.Alright, here's the thing.  I can't disagree with the guy.  But what I love about this is the complete random nature that all of this popped up on Twitter.I mean, there's Chipper Jones, deep in the wild at the Double Dime Ranch watching basic cable and deciding his 200,000-plus followers needed to know his JFK conspiracy theories.Now, if only dude can uncover the truth about the 2012 American League MVP voting.  Am I right?

  • Sorry Chipper. It was just one guy, one gun, 3 shots, from the Texas School Book Depository. I have seen several interesting documentaries where they try to recreate the event. One was where they tried to show the magic bullet was not that. They proved it came from behind and did the same damage as what happened. More interesting was where they replicated the shot that hit Kennedy's head using artificial materials to make a synthetic head. The shot from behind with the same rifle had the same basic result as the real shot. Then they tried it from the "grassy knoll". They, of course, didn't know what kind of rifle but they tried the 2 most likely. The first blew the whole head to smitherenes. The second went threw the head with much less damage. Either shot from the side would have almost certainly hit jackie in the head after leaving JFK's head killing her also. One small, pitiful unknown can actually kill the most important man in the world. Reagam could have died at the hands of a loser. No conspiracy!
