Helter Skelter: An Industry on the Brink of Revolution

M-iS-16180487M-ADM

I am writing this article to issue a warning to automobile dealers and virtually everyone who is employed by the retail automotive industry. Please bear with me and read this article in its entirety. The deeper meaning of the story at the beginning will become abundantly clear later in the text.

It was Nov. 22, 1963. I was sitting in Mr. Crohn’s chemistry class, bored out of my mind and wishing I was anywhere else. A burst of static from the PA system interrupted the lecture. It sounded like somebody was trying to tune in a radio station. The static cleared up and a voice announced that President Kennedy had been shot.

No details followed. I sat there in class with 30 other 16-year-old kids in total shock. Some of us were crying. I know I did, briefly. We were scared. Was this the beginning of World War III? We began asking questions that have never been answered. Kennedy had been killed and his assassin was murdered before he could go to trial. It seemed all too convenient that the facts and details we needed were buried forever.
