Our buddy Larry Sabato, the University of Virginia political scientist who’s been quoted in our pages a time or two, has a new book on the way that aims to debunk the conspiracy theory in the murder of President John F. Kennedy 50 years ago next month.

“The long-hoped-for Rosetta Stone of the Kennedy assassination is nothing of the sort,” he writes. “And the much-publicized conclusion of proven conspiracy … was deeply flawed and demonstrably wrong.”
His book: The Kennedy Half Century: The Presidency, Assassination, and Lasting Legacy of John F. Kennedy.
Sabato went so far as to commission a scientific analysis of the Dallas Police Department’s Dictabelt recording of scanner traffic from Nov. 22, 1963, as part of his research.
