Remember well both the announcement of JFK's assassination, and the
three workers to whom I next conveyed the news.

Also, I distinctly remember the moment of the TV announcement of the
Martin Luther King, Jr., assassination.  Recently out of the service, I
was visiting a newly married friend.  When the news came on TV, my
friend's wife was finishing up some work in the kitchen, preparing to
come in and join our conversation.  We exchanged a few comments about
what was just shown on TV, but there was no further conversation; I
left.  In a lengthy telephone conversation just before this past
Christmas, he and I agreed on our memory of the specifics of that
moment.  We were trying to figure out why the details of the event had
stayed with us.
