Bill Paxton's Brush With History

Bill Paxton isn't just a famous actor from Fort Worth. Turns out he's got his own JFK assassination story (thanks to Robert Wilonsky at Unfair Park for the scoop.) But, hey, who doesn't have an assassination story.

Turns out the Paxton saw JFK as he left the Texas Hotel downtown on the morning of that fateful trip to Dallas. And, not only does he have a story, he's got the photo above to prove it (Photo courtesy of Roy Cooper Collection, KTVT-TV/Courtesy The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza). He's the kid sitting on the guy's shoulders.
