The Day My Grandpa Les Singleton Met JFK on Superior Street in Duluth, Minnesota

All this week, we've seen a lot of specials on the assassination of JFK as we mark the 50th anniversary of that fateful day in Dallas.  About two months before his trip to Dallas, he visited Duluth.  He was in the Northland on September 24th, 1963 and spent a night at the Hotel Duluth, now the Greysolon Plaza.  He was scheduled to give a speech at UMD and there was to be a motorcade in Downtown Duluth.  That's when my Grandpa Les Singleton, a firefighter at the time, came up with his plan.
