On Monday, Jack could barely contain his emotions as he tried to grasp the possibility that KLIN “Drive Time Lincoln” producer Kevin Thomas hit a slow-pitch softball home run over a 25′ tall catch net at the Union College fields at 56th and Calvert. Like former New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, Jack tried to convince John that this was a story of great significance and that such a feat – if it did happen – was worthy of front page consideration in a local newspaper.
But like Garrison-to-JFK murder, Jack’s words seemed to fall on deaf ears despite his public and off-air pleads.
Sadly, an Abraham Zapruder film of the incident is not available. There were no cameras rolling at the time of the moment. But KLIN’s John Bishop, dogged investigatory journalist that he is, finally succumbed to Jack’s cries of attention (emphasis on “cries”) as he returns to the scene of the incident and attempts to put the pieces back together in this now infamous incident.
Please forgive John as he thinks he has channelled the spirit of the late Walter Cronkite during his narration (and he didn’t even bother to attempt a Cronkite impersonation.)
Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold. ~Leo Tolstoy
