Despite being a well-known journalist, gossip columnist, crime reporter, actress and a screenwriter, she was probably best known for being a panellist on the popular television game show, What’s My Line? And yet she died, aged only fifty two, of a fatal mixture of drugs and alcohol, hardly commensurate with her television persona. For example, she was the first journalist to reveal that there was any personal relationship between Marilyn and the Kennedys — just a few days before the actress was found dead.
When JFK, a man who Dorothy had met and admired, was assassinated she immediately began to investigate. In her last published reference to the assassination, she questioned the validity of the photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald posing with guns. On the evening before Dorothy’s strange death, her hairdresser, Marc Sinclaire, went to her home as usual to coif her for the show. Fellow panellist Arlene Francis also remarked later that it was the first time in all the years they had appeared on the series together that Dorothy had not kissed her when saying goodbye after the show. The next day, on the morning of December 8th, 1965, hairdresser Marc Sinclaire let himself into Dorothy’s home in order to do her hair.
Unusually, she was fully dressed, her hair was in place and so was her make-up, even to the extent of her wearing false eyelashes.
The manuscript and notes for her book about the assassination of John Kennedy were not found.

Back for another year is the Big School Read with author Sally Nicholls talking about writing to local secondary school pupils hosted at St John’s Academy in Marlborough; St John’s sixth-formers will repeat their successful 2015 Panel Debate (last year focusing on library closures and gender representation in literature). She was openly critical about court verdicts, political motives and politicians themselves. Her biggest scoop came when she acquired early access to the Warren Commission report showing the testimony of Jack Ruby, the killer of JFK assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. Her performance on the show that evening was as usual, but she seemed nervous – unusual for someone who had been on the programme for so long. He moved into the adjacent bedroom- where Dorothy never slept (her bedroom was on another floor) and to his surprise found her in the bed there. I also probably only read these during times when I was able to focus completely (aka: when it was quiet). Maybe that should be my challenge for next year—100 books without audiobooks.Thanks, Lauri, for taking the time to read and comment.

The air conditioner was cooling the bedroom even though it was December and the weather was cold. I'm now on my 26th book read in the traditional manner, so I'll be able to finish my goal, possibly with another to spare.I will do this again next year, but as you are planning, I am going to increase my number and count audio books as a specific percentage of my total.
Perhaps I should take that into account when I'm setting next year's goal.Thanks for reading and commenting.
Unfortunately, Williams was not able to enjoy his freedom for very long; he died unexpectedly in his home on January 14, 1990, aged 59, from pneumonia and heart failure, six months after the fourth and final trial.
However, even though I had no challenge, I also pushed through two books that were difficult.
I often get audio books for those I know I'd never actually sit down with yet still want to "read."Thanks again for introducing me to this challenge. The odd thing about his death is that he is reported to have fallen to the very spot where he would have lain had Danny shot him, as he claimed Danny meant to do.

He is buried next to his mother, Blanche Brooks Williams, in Ramah Church Cemetery, Gordon, Georgia.The Mercer-William Museum, located on the city's Monterey Square, is a frequent stop for tourists seeking to revisit this and other scenes depicted in the movie and book.
