It was 36 years ago.
More than 3 out of 4 American households—and half of the adults in this great land—tuned in to “Dallas” to finally learn who shot J. R.
Around the world, 350 million people watched the first episode of the third season of the blockbuster primetime “drama” to get the lowdown on the lowdown skulker who did the deed.
Some people didn’t watch the show. Like me. You can read all about it here. I’ll be honest, I skimmed the story on History.com and I still don’t know the name of the shooter.
Ignorance shall be my penalty.
I’m gonna guess that the number of folks in the U. S. who know that name is larger than the number of folks who know when the Constitution was ratified, and larger than the number of folks who know what “arsenal of democracy” means.
