NEW YORK (1010 WINS) –– Nov. 24th, 1963. The basement of the Dallas city jail. Enter Lee Harvey Oswald. Enter Jack Ruby. Exit common sense.
While reading Vincent Bugliosi’s minute-by-minute account of the assassination of President Kennedy and its aftermath, “Four Days in Dallas,” I came upon a familiar name, attached to a vaguely familiar face. We all change in fifty years. Mickey Carroll. Identified as a reporter for the Herald Tribune. And there he was standing against a wall in the basement garage, looking on as Jack Ruby lurched forward toward the suspect.
