JACK RUBY 50 years ago..............

50 Years ago, two days after John F Kennedy was assassinated , a one time bar and strip club owner Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald, in the basement of a Dallas police station. Ruby was put on trial for the murder approximately 3 months after he shot Oswald, with opening statements on March 5th, 1964. The trial of Jack Ruby is highlighted in the upcoming book: The Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art to be published in early 2014. Artist Howard Brodie covered the trial for CBS News, from start to finish.
