JEFF MORLEY WRITES -
I want to let you all know about a new Web site, JFK Facts, that Rex Bradford and I just launched.
The mission of JFKfacts.org is to bring the kind of spirited and deeply informed debate we have in this listserve to the World Wide Web. We want to become the preeminent site for discussion of the JFK story. Is anybody outside of our little group interested? We think so, especially as the 50th anniversary of the assassination approaches.
JFKfacts.org is a social media Web site, meaning that readers' contributions are not just welcome, they are fundamental. So we hope that you will consider contributing your expertise.
We're looking for people to answer specific factual questions about the JFK story in a concise and responsible way. (For more on our contributors policy, click here). If we achieve our fund-raising goals, we will have an editorial budget to pay for solicited articles that break new ground on the JFK presidency and assassination story.
We're also looking for memories of November 22, not to flog conspiracy/lone nut theories, but to capture the experience and emotions of that day and its aftermath. You can share yours here.
And we are raising money via Indiegogo, the fund-raising Web site. Check out my introductory video and our prospectus for the site. Please circulate this link with anyone interested in supporting an informed and civil debate about the JFK story.
Comments, corrections, complaints, and suggestions are welcome.
