Confirmed solve, Salty, but I think John got there first.

I believe the words to the song go something like:
Big D little a double L as

Also, for those of you that have traveled to Texas there is only one "Big D".

Edit Reason: Grassy knoll would have also worked I think

I know! I know!

Those steps in the bottom left of the picture were the clue for a previous WITWHH.

You can go out to this island on a catamaran.

Confirmed.

I've been to Texas. Except for Austin, yeah, seems like one big "dump" for the most part. Sorry, Texicans, that was just too easy to pass up from California. smile

This tragedy will be in the news a lot in a couple weeks, 50 years. [Edit: Nobody caught this? What a goofy mistake from an engineer. It's going to be 51 yrs this year. It was a historical error, not a math error.]

Nice clue, Wagga. You crack me up, doggone it.

I actually solved this one with visual clues and hunches, scrolling around in Google Earth. Then I figured out the rest. Who has time for that, right? Once you know you're close, it's addicting.

Awright, for the rest of us, how about explaining the historical error with the Big D puzzle.

Time and Date of the event was: 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time (18:30 UTC) on Friday, November 22, 1963, so 51 years is correct (as of Nov. 22, 2014). Not sure why Sierra thought his "50 years" was a "historical" error, unless he just thought/remembered the date as 1964.

SN, just because you are an engineer and a repository of book knowledge doesn't mean you get everything perfect.

Another good one, Wagga. I was going on memory thinking it was 1964. Memory can be a dangerous thing at my age.

Lorraine Motel, Memphis, Tennessee . . . where Martin Luther King was assassinated (Room 306) on April 4, 1968. (Today the National Civil Rights Museum.)

(I guess these puzzles are easy to solve if you've been there, especially if you've personally taken essentially the same picture.)

A con of visiting this island is the lag time getting there. And no canaries.

Confirmed solve, Wagga. No escaping the fact that I'm having a hard time challenging you.

Big D definitely identifies the city. But the question is "What happened?"

You decide.
