Fair Play is edited and published by John Kelin; all responsibility for deciding its content must be laid at his doorstep. Contributors to this issue include Chris Courtwright, Ian Griggs, William Kelly, and Jerrold Smith. Thanks also to Brad Parker for sending along tape recordings of conference presentations that editor Kelin was unable to attend.
Thanks, as always, to Deanie Richards of JFK Place. Deanie provides us with disk space for the Fair Play archive. JFK Place is an ever-improving repository for some very excellent material, and we encourage everyone to check it out.
Editor Kelin has added some personal stuff to this site.
Fair Play was founded in 1994 by John Kelin and Lalo J. Gastriani. We regard it as one big Op-Ed page; all readers are encouraged to submit articles and letters for use in future issues. You may lambaste us, praise us, or send us Web links. We will run the most thought-provoking stuff we get.
As a rule, Fair Play is oriented toward research and journalism. But we'll run JFK-related fiction, poetry, or anything else of general interest. You may send articles via email (please send a query first) to the following address:

Fair Play was flattered to have been rated among the top five percent of all sites on the Web. The rating came from an outfit called Point Survey, who describe themselves thusly: "Point is a free service which rates and reviews only the best sites on the World Wide Web. We provide surfers with a standard of excellence: a catalog of the most lively, useful, and fun sites on the Net."
Fair Play was also flattered to have been chosen a Cool Site of the Day on November 22, 1994. If you've not yet checked out this site, we suggest you do.
Editor Kelin has a tendency to adopt an editorial "we" when he writes this portion of Fair Play. The plural pronoun is just a convenient device; when he says we he usually means I. The editor has also been known to use the nom de plume, "Lionel Mirthmint." As if he were fooling anybody!
By the time this issue is uploaded (but not as I write these words) Christmas will be over and done with. Undoubtedly some readers do not care about, or do not observe, this particular holiday. Nevertheless, here is a picture of the editor's youngsters decked out in Santa hats in front of the tree.
The page one photograph of the grassy knoll and the former Texas School Book Depository building was taken by the editor in October 1993. The line beneath it, about Oswald and the American public, comes from Sylvia Meagher's Accessories After the Fact.
