A Regular Friday Morning 50 Years Ago

Everyone else is going to be covering the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination and there will be no shortage of stories about it. Here at Ghosts of DC, we want to shed some light on the other things that happened that day … the regular, average stuff. Throughout the day, we’re going to highlight some normal things from the day, starting with the front page of the Washington Post on Friday, November 22nd, 1963.
