"What is true of this city is true of Germany — real, lasting peace in Europe can never be assured as long as one German out of four is denied the elementary right of free men, and that is to make a free choice. In eighteen years of peace and good faith, this generation of Germans has earned the right to be free, including the right to unite their families and their nation in lasting peace, with goodwill to all people. You live in a defended island of freedom, but your life is part of the main. So let me ask you, as I close, to lift your eyes beyond the dangers of today to the hopes of tomorrow, beyond the freedom merely of this city of Berlin, or your country of Germany, to the advance of freedom everywhere, beyond the wall to the day of peace with justice, beyond yourselves and ourselves to all mankind." -President John F. Kennedy June 28th, 1963

Reminder that, while messages can be nice, a lot of roleplayers have established About pages, Disclaimers, and FAQs that answer your questions so you don’t have to ask them.

It can be very frustrating and tiresome answering the same questions all the time, especially when a mun has gone out of their way to make the information readily available to you. 

PLEASE be considerate and mindful.  I think this is FREQUENTLY ignored in the RP community.

Right, so, then there was the time Larry Flynt tried to “solve” JFK’s assassination …

In December 1977, Hustler Magazine founder Larry Flynt purchased the LA Free Press, a California alternative/underground paper, and devoted an entire issue to trying to prove that JFK was assassinated by the CIA.

He offered a million dollars for tips via an ad on the back page, and later paid to place the million-dollar-reward ad in newspapers across the country, like the Dallas Morning News, seen in the photo above from January 8, 1978. After Flynt was shot a few weeks later, he became convinced that his own assassination attempt was related to his JFK “research”.
