Tonight at 11:00-- how could a man kill his grandfather and nearly kill his mother, then pretend he didn't do it? Police charged Jeff Steen with the murder of his grandfather and attempted murder of his mother that began as a robbery. Steen is the one who called 911 to report the attack and spoke with us after police arrived. At the time, he wondered who could have done it? Today, going to jail, Steen had nothing to say.

I was just contemplating where I was 50 years ago tomorrow. On November 22, 1963, I was in 5th grade at a Catholic school when the nuns announced President Kennedy had been shot. They were in tearful agony as they announced we would be going home from school early.
When we got home, my mother was crying-- and glued to the television. We were all cemented to the beginnings of wall-to-wall TV news coverage. Then, on Sunday, November 24, we watched as Jack Ruby stuck a gun in Lee Oswald's ribs and fired. Those are days I'll never forget.
