I'm sure there is going to be all sorts of media coverage, both on TV, cable and the newsstand. PBS has recently announced several specials they will devote to it. It touched too many lives, forever changing our country, and many are going to want to discuss and reflect upon it. I don't know if you can get everyone to hold off until November 22, however.It will probably come up again in the December Time Capsule, as ACTION COMICS 309, which featured JFK aiding Superman to protect his secret identity, went on sale on December 26, 1963, over a month after the assassination.

I have this vague memory that E. Nelson Bridwell, in a later letter column, basically said something to the effect that this never happened, because Superman was hallucinating under the influence of Virus X, and that the rebellion never took place.
But for the life of me, I can't remember where specifically he said this. Does this ring a bell with anyone?
