  4. Just out of curiosity was there a number of locals doing a “tour” of the area telling the tale of the event?

    Last time I went to Dallas there were dozens of people that did the “tour/story telling” of jfk’s assassination close to the grassy knoll.
     
  5. Didn't have to go far, just down the road from me - the Birth Place of Guy Fawkes - now a pub...
