Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.

It’s nearly fifty years now since the assassination of John F. Kennedy. This past week, Lee Harvey Oswald would have turned 72. His lover, Judyth Vary Baker, has been in Canada this week to do a series of interviews about Oswald, their relationship and the undercover plot that brought them together which resulted in the murder of Kennedy in Dallas, Texas, November 22nd 1963. Ms. Baker has written a book, Me & Lee: How I Came to Know, Love, and Lose Lee Harvey Oswald, and after its publication some time ago, she is finally talking about what’s in the book, and about Oswald, all in an effort to reconsider, and rehabilitate his place in history. We’ll get Ms. Baker to tell us about what Oswald was doing, how he got set up, and how he eventually met his own demise some days after the assassination at the hands of Jack Ruby. Since the assassination Judyth Vary Baker has lived a quiet life outside the public eye living overseas in the midst of death threats. She joins me from Montreal today. The book is available from www.meandlee.com, as well Amazon and Chapters are selling it on their websites. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Judyth Vary Baker; Good morning, Ms. Baker.
