Lew: Decades before I was a One World Government/New World Order conspiracy factualist, I became a JFK assassination conspiracy buff after my 10th grade history teacher spent an entire class session discussing Josiah Thompson’s book Six Seconds in Dallas. But it was only a few years ago that I found out about this famous photograph of LBJ happily smiling as a friend of his (Texas Congressman Albert Thomas) is winking at him right after LBJ is sworn in as President after JFK was assassinated. (By the way, do you notice that Lady Bird, and even Jackie Kennedy, seem sort of happy too?)
