hotwired into history

I used hotwire.com to book a hotel in Fort Worth tonight and I ended up staying in the old Hotel Texas (now Hilton).  This was where John F. Kennedy spent his last night before flying to Love Field on 11/22/1963.  

I found out that he stayed on the 8th floor, which is where I ended up tonight.  I have stayed here several times and I have always known the history of the hotel, but tonight was the first time I heard of him staying on the 8th floor.  

It is amazing how close we are to history sometimes without even realizing the significance of seemingly meaningless places.  I don’t know, it just hit me tonight.  -TSImage
