Today in History: November 22

42 years ago, on November 22, 1963, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (or "JFK" as he is known to "Itchy & Scratchy" director Oliver Stone) was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. "Lone gunman" Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested. Decades later, Professor John Frink used the Zapruder Film to demonstrate that Marge Simpson was involved in the assassination: "And if we freeze on frame 138, we distinctly see a puff of blue hair coming from the grassy knoll." Who really killed JFK? Despite the lack of any new evidence, the media rehashes this question every year on this day.
