BOSTON - Newly released papers show that in the weeks and months following the assassination of president John F. Kennedy, brother Robert F.

HOUSTON - The Lyndon B. Johnson Foundation has given former President George H.W. Bush an award for his public service and government career.
WASHINGTON - I'm not so sure the nation is well-served these days, or perhaps ever was, by limiting the terms of its chief executive. It seemed like a good idea at the time following Franklin D. Roosevelt's four elections to the presidency, but the negatives, I believe, have come to outweigh the positives.

NEW YORK - As President John F. Kennedy lay dying 50 years ago at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Vice President Lyndon Johnson was hurried into a small room in Minor Medicine, where he stood silently against a wall.

DALLAS - The subject of much debate for a half-century, President John F. Kennedy's assassination remains for some a treasure trove of unanswered questions. Friday's anniversary attracted academics, history buffs and conspiracy-minded activists to the city for another round of conversation.
DALLAS - Fifty years after John F. Kennedy fell victim to an assassin's bullet while visiting Texas with his wife, people at home and abroad paused Friday to remember the 35th president of the United States. Collected here are memories of the slain president, details from the day of his death and live updates from the memorial service at Dealey Plaza in Dallas.
The presidency of John F. Kennedy, and especially its abrupt and brutal ending, seems an inexhaustible source of conspiracy theories - the grassy knoll, the mob, Cuban assassins, a second shooter, a cabal of right-wing Texas oilmen.

The horse's name was Black Jack. His saddle was empty, but boots were in the stirrups - backwards. Skittishly, he followed the body of John F. Kennedy on its last journey.
DALLAS - A 1930s-era movie theater. A county hospital. An old brick rooming house. A bustling airport.
