Checked in this afternoon at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Dallas, site of the annual Leadership Conference of Women Religious gathering. At the check in desk a clerk asked if I had any special room in mind. I answered that one with a view of the area would be appreciated. "You can see the downtown area," she remarked handing me the card key. Upon entering the room I went to the window, opened it, and saw a familiar site, long ago etched into my consciousness, the book depository out of which Lee Harvey Osward shot President Kennedy in November, 1963. It remains a haunting site. You can see the view my wife and I see as we look through the 10th story hotel window. Oswald shot Kennedy from the top floor, sixth window from the left. What a tragedy.
