Here's an interesting ELVIS PRESLEY fact: On this day in 1968, Elvis’s heartfelt reaction to the assassination of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired "68' Comeback Special" producer Steve Binder to ask songwriter Earl Brown to compose a song about Elvis’s feelings which resulted in the famous song “If I Can Dream.”  06/06/2013 <3 by patty

On November 24, 1963, two days after Kennedy's assassination, suspect Lee Harvey Oswald is escorted to the Dallas city jail as Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby approaches with gun drawn. Bypassing a cordon of police officers, Ruby shot Oswald in the abdomen, an act inadvertently captured on live television by reporters filming the prisoner transfer. Ruby was convicted of Oswald's murder and spent his remaining days in prison. by tamra
