Sirhan Sirhan — the man convicted of assassinating Robert F.

Assassination Town: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Ghosts of New Orleans

A weird relic rested on the bookcase in my family's last home in New Orleans: a wooden pipe that had belonged to Jim Garrison, the Orleans Parish district attorney who tried and failed to convict a local businessman named Clay Shaw for the assassination of President John F.
