Ready for the invasion?

This, being the 50th anniversary of the death of John F. Kennedy, we're about attract conspiracy theorists like flies to sugar.

It's this week's uncut commentary.

Everyday, people mill about Dealey Plaza, claiming they know who killed JFK.

In the next few months, you and I are going to be deluged with claims of new evidence, new film,  new witnesses; just buy the book, get the movie!

Before you spend your cash, think about it: we can't keep a secret in this country for five minutes, let alone 50 years. Anything new has probably already leaked out.

I bought books, thinking something different was inside. One claimed a Secret Service officer accidentally did it, another blamed Dallas police. LBJ, the Cubans, the mafia. the CIA.

They've all been thrown under the bus, and each theory shot down by evidence.

So, when they come riding into town later this year - and they will - save your money.

Oh, and don't look for any closure... There's no money in closure.

Those are my thoughts, send me yours at jmccaa@wfaa.com.
