Making Sense of the Sixties

A National Symposium on the Assassinations

and Political Legacies of Martin Luther King Jr.,

Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy

Oct. 3-5, 2008

Power Center Ballroom

Duquesne University

Pittsburgh, PA

Forty years after the brutal and untimely deaths of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy, and 45 years after the relatively better known assassination of President John F. Kennedy, questions still abound about the circumstances of their murders. Furthermore, amidst the current climate of political cynicism and apathy, historians and voters alike ponder what these men might have become, and what their political legacies are even today, on the cusp of another historic presidential election. From matters of ballistics and trajectories to questions of conspiracy and cover-up, these three cases present fascinating and important topics for students of all ages.

Following up on their historic 2003 conference on the JFK assassination, The Cyril H. Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law and Duquesne University School of Law are convening many of the top experts on these men and their murders for three days of presentations and panel discussions. Among the confirmed speakers to date are:

Michael M. Baden, M.D.

Chairman, Forensic Pathology Panel, U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA)

James DiEugenio

Author, Destiny Betrayed; co-author, The Assassinations

Well I have to give credit to Dan Moldea for showing up in that crowd!

Wonder which one will show up.

Shane O'Sullivan writes in his new book Who Killed Bobby, that Dan Moldea is now the contact person for authors seeking to interview Thane Caesar about

his actions and perceptions during the RFK assassination. O'Sullivan claims that Caesar is charging 50,000$ for an interview and now lives in the Philippines.

O'Sullivan also writes that Moldea could be had for 2,500$ An interereting relationship seems to have developed between a rather important witness and the guy with the Norton paperback contract on the case.

If you look at the Youtube segment of the American University Conference that VP has posted among his collection, that's Dan Moldea's mug at the beginning of the segment, as it cuts out his portion of the program in which he advocates the mob killed JFK thesis, which sparks John Judge's little tirade. Or Classic John Judge, as Vince puts it.

Moldea called John Judge on the phone the next day, but I forget what transpired. Moldea certainly wasn't convinced that the assassination was a coup, because he's still pawning off the story.
