Well, I could make up some lame excuse for getting the date of Lee Harvey Oswald’s death wrong, but . . .

Once again, I find I find myself wearing the Shroud of Chagrin, as it has been pointed out to me that Lee Harvey Oswald actually died 50 years ago on November 24, and not on November 23, as I wrote last week.

I’d offer up some lame excuse about cataracts, or rips in the space/time continuum, but the truth is this:

I was just real little when it happened, and I got the days confused. All of these years later, I still managed to hold on to that particular bit of childhood misinformation.

The Moon did still go out of orbit in 1999, though, right? I wasn’t imagining that, was I?
