Answer Funny Thing Happened Alphabe-Thursday

My Alphabe-Thursday brings the letter "A" with an Answer to Funny Thing Happened as well as 

Air Force, Assassination, American-Minnesota Song Writer, Paul Metsa, American Psychedelic Rock Band, Autopsy, Abraham Zupruder.


Aiming to add a few A- things for Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday 
while clearing up the law enforcement detail I found myself driving in the middle of.


(I shot this Hipstamatic-photo today- but it's this gloomy outside.)


So much to report really.   So little time, so I will be brief.  


That funny thing, I stumbled upon -

Air Force- As always, the military is hush, hush mostly, yet Google hits prove worthy to view regarding my Tuesday post here if you missed it. Apparently, Mr. Racing-Stripped-Charger-Patrol was not, a party too, or connected with the stream of suburbans.


Alas, celebrity protection at your finest always in the Twin Cities.

Alleged - answer is the Arrival of American-Minnesota Song Writer, Paul Metsa, famous for his "Jack Ruby" song had a live interview on Minnesota's MPR - News - Radio.  His interview heard here.




Paul Metsa


Another Alleged American Band - MGMT had a concert in Saint Paul that day.



MGMT - Electric Feel heard here.





Anyone know where this was?


AP - Photo of Nightclub owner, Jack Ruby who shot alleged JFK gunman Lee Harvey Oswald.


ASSASSINATION -  Of John F. Kennedy happened 50 years ago this November 22.


A bit of big news for Minnesota with Judge Tunheim.

Minnesota- U.S. District Judge John Tunheim was chairman from 1994 - 1998 of the Assassination Records review board, an independent federal panel that Congress created to declassify intelligence and law enforcement records that government agencies still considered too sensitive to release publicly.  

All across the board his story hit the news press on this day.  Even on Sunday the day before.



U.S. District John Tunheim

WooHoo anyone that really wants to bury themselves in a lot of facts, truth and an endless paper trail over the JFK Assassination go to the National Archives.

Archives - The panel that Tunheim was a part of released about 5 million pages of documents that are now available to Any and All, with PUBLIC viewing inside the National Archives.  It includes records about the events in Dallas, Oswald and the reactions of government agencies to the assassination.





National Archives Washington, DC



located at 700 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC



Also, a tidbit that their panel of five uncovered and Tunheim disclosed in his interview.  The board's staff found the files of the prosecutors of Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby, the gunman who killed Oswald before he could stand trial, hidden in a closet (really, wow) in the Dallas district attorney's office.  But, Tunheim admitted he was disappointed that they couldn't locate the files of Ruby's defense lawyers.


Autopsy - In Addition to releasing records, the review board also had the fading photos of Kennedy's autopsy, digitalized to make them clearer, and it acquired the most complete film of the shooting, shot by citizen Abraham Zapruder, and it remains the property of the American people forever.




Thanks for visiting my Alphabe-Thursday today, I hope you found something new and exciting, and for more letter "A" posts go here.

I was in high school in Richardson, Texas at the time, about 20 minutes from Dallas. Some of my friends had just come back from seeing him in the parade when we got the news over the PA system. We couldn't believe it. I sat glued to the tv for the next three days.
