Well, at last here’s the photographic proof – Zicree on the grassy knoll in Dallas.

Of course, the fact that I was eight years old when JFK was assassinated might be viewed by some as an acceptable alibi, but there’s always that nagging doubt…

Actually, this photo was taken last Friday, when Elaine and I were in Dallas to teach a weekend seminar of actors, directors, writers and producers on how to have a successful career in the Industry. The weekend went wonderfully well, especially as the talented Lamkin family – actress mom Kathy¸ editor/casting director daughter Katie and NASA engineer dad Steve -- were helping us lead the class. Kathy showed her DVD of her heartbreaking and wonderful performance as Mama Boone on the season opener of NIP/TUCK -- which should win an Emmy if any performance deserves to.

On our day off, we visited the Sixth Floor Musuem, which is devoted to the Kennedy Presidency and assassination -- in fact, the Museum is housed in the Book Depository where Lee Harvey Oswald actually shot JFK from a sixth floor window. It's eerie and remarkable to actually look out that very window!

In the photo on top, you can see me in front of the infamous Grassy Knoll; to the left behind me is where the second assassin allegedy fired from. Below is the photo of me in front of the Depository itself. The sixth floor on the right hand side is where Oswald positioned himself... and the car on the street is literally where JFK was first shot. Tremendously moving and sad to actually be there.

A once-in-a-lifetime weekend, and experience.
