Ty'Jon Delancy rarely stops talking, and he was quite a chatterbox before the biggest game of his life. However, he proved he can put his money where his mouth is Friday night, rushing for 119 yards and two touchdowns in 25 carries as Los Angeles Garfield retained neighborhood bragging rights over L.A. Roosevelt with a 22-6 victory in the 79th East LA Classic before an estimated crowd of 15,000 at East Los Angeles College. The first half looked like a carbon copy of last year's epic struggle - which Garfield won, 7-0 - but the Bulldogs' offense took over in the last two quarters, and defensive lineman Eri Velasquez scored on a 35-yard interception return to clinch the win. The victory kept Garfield (6-3, 5-0)

As one of the surviving members of the staff of the Warren Commission, which investigated and issued a report on the assassination of President John F.

After Chief Justice Earl Warren hired me to work for the commission, he told me that "truth was our only client.

For the ensuing three days, Americans gathered around their televisions in a rite of collective mourning as the three broadcast networks abandoned their regularly scheduled programming to provide uninterrupted news coverage.
