The Kennedy Assassination Did Change Everything, But You Had to Have Been There to Know It

Bonnie Greer | Posted 25.01.2014 | UK

On 22 November 1963, in the US, after lunchtime, (my hometown of Chicago is in the same time zone as Dallas) on a school day, we were told that the President had been shot dead. I walked home, crying. It was raining, like something out of a corny movie. People were wailing; standing around stunned; praying out loud

Young Jack Kennedy and his beautiful, intelligent and cultured wife Jacqueline became in essence America's first Royal Family. They radiated the image of a new generation of the 'American Dream' where anything was possible. It was against this backdrop of hope and optimism for future, that this dark day in American history occurred. On that sunny Friday in Dallas, 50 years ago, time stood still.

Cyber Warfare: The Modern Cold War?

It's difficult to imagine how cyber warfare could wreak the same havoc as traditional, conventional war. But as former director of national intelligence Mike McConnell once noted, cyber war has the potential to mirror the nuclear challenge - less in the physical sense, but in terms of the potential economic and psychological effects.

A word to the wise: if you're a movie addict planning to interview Oliver Stone, don't do it in the small hours; it's a thrilling experience, the equivalent of downing a triple strength coffee - a midnight espresso if you like.

Obama's Crisis of Trust

As the saying goes "presidential candidates campaign in poetry and if they are lucky enough to win, they govern in prose". Presidential Candidate Barack Obama was especially good at campaigning in poetry. Perhaps that is why, even though he has won re-election for a second term, he is unwilling to dismantle his campaign appartus and get into the down and dirty, nitty-gritty work of governing in hard edged well disciplined prose.

Jason Holmes

Crombie's autumn/winter 2012 collection possesses what you would expect from a company that has dressed the likes of the Duke of Windsor, Winston Churchill, Cary Grant, The Beatles, JFK and Barack Obama: and that is ineffable classic style, but with a modern twist. Jason Holmes met Crombie's head of wholesale Gordon Ritchie to try on the king of coats

The Hidden Hero of Hollywood

I've constantly bitched about how unfair this system of movie marketing is, or how unfair the media is as credit really isn't going where credit is due. But until I went to the Aruba International Film Festival, I realised that there's a position that rarely gets any credit at all - they never get to walk the red carpet and yet they are the ones that truly make films magical.

In life, Colombia's 1989 presidential candidate, Luis Carlos Galan, was South America's version of JFK; charismatic, visionary, admired and fearless. More than 20 years after his murder the comparisons to JFK continue.

As a non-smoker and someone who considers herself a student of presentation, I have found myself wondering why cigars continue to elicit almost a romantic response and cigarettes do not; why one butt not the other, if you will.

Conspiracy: Theories and Thrillers

Alan Glynn

I'm very fond of conspiracy theories - they're intriguing and fun, in their twisted way. But they're also very frustrating, because any big reveal will always be just out of reach, always just around the next corner. You want them to be true, and maybe some day they will be, but they're never true now.
