Walking along K Road this evening when I saw a homemade sign stuck up on a lamppost saying “WHERE IS LEE HARVEY OSWALD WHEN YOU NEED HIM?” Yeah, I bet there are many people out there wishing for a good old-fashioned political assassin to kind a grassy knoll or schoolbook depository with a view.
But hey, what’s been going on all night long? Yes, that’s right. People have been letting off fireworks to commemorate a failed assassination attempt 399 years ago. Every Mt Vesuvius being let off up Mt Eden screams “Down with wannabe assassins!”
