City to Announce JFK Memorial Plans Tomorrow

A year from now, we’ll be inundated with Time stories, 60 Minutes stories, and faux-reverent Chris Berman voiceovers on Monday Night Football, all explaining the importance of Nov. 22, 1963.

But tomorrow, we’ll find out what the city will be up to. At 2 p.m., Mayor Mike Rawlings will announce the plans for the 2013 memorial event. Why they decided to host this press conference two days before the anniversary is beyond me. Seems like a wasted opportunity for some “One year from today…” sound bites.
