The Umbrella Man


One of my all-time favorite New York Times OpDoc videos by Errol Morris.

Josiah “Tink” Thompson – who wrote the book “Six Seconds in Dallas” – describes The Umbrella Man.

I have watched this six-minute video at least twenty times in the past couple of years. I feel compelled to share it.  It is a terrific reminder.

If you haven’t seen it, I really hope you enjoy it.  If you have seen it, please enjoy it again.

Mr. Thompson’s ‘cautionary tale’ is pure wisdom.
