Watching the CBS morning news show with Charlie Rose & Co., they had Bob
Schieffer on and were talking about the day of the Kennedy assassination.
Please no political or theory comments, Bob was a reporter at the Fort Worth
Star-Telegram at the time and he said one of the many phone calls he took
that afternoon turned out to be from Lee Oswald's mother who needed a ride
to Dallas.
Now to the TR content:  Schieffer said, "I had a Triumph sports car, just a
two-seater, so my editor drove in his car while I sat in the back with Mrs.
Oswald" (this is a very close paraphrase).  So, in November of 1963 CBS
correspondent Bob Schieffer had a Triumph, most likely at TR3 or new TR4.
Anyone else catch this?  Anyone know anything of the car he owned? (Maybe
the Red River guys have it squirreled away somewhere?)
