In two weeks, we commemorate a national tragedy but, as predicted, there will be a few who takes things a little too far.

It’s this week’s Uncut commentary.

Click on this link to view a commercial that some thought might be clever. It’s a perfect example of carrying something too far.

It's an ad about gambling that has already caused quite a stir for trying to put a humorous spin on JFK's assassination.

Fifty years is a long time, but not that long; not long enough to mend all the heartache still felt by many in this city who were here that tragic day. And not long enough for a nation still struggling for answers; the right answers to who we were, and where we’re going.

Maybe I’m a little too sensitive on the subject, but for me, the commercial is way out of bounds.

If we we’re talking the Lincoln, Garfield, or McKinley assassination, that might be easier to take. But this?

Well, it’s just too soon.

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