FILE - This handout photo provided by the Newseum, and the estate of Jacques Lowe, shows John F. Kennedy at a news conference in Omaha, Neb. in 1959.  Three cities loom large in the life and death of John F. Kennedy: Washington, D.C., where he served as U.S. president and as a senator; Dallas, where he died, and Boston, where he was born. With the 50th anniversary of his Nov. 22, 1963 assassination at hand, all three places are worth visiting to learn more about him or to honor his legacy.(AP Photo/Newseum, estate of Jacques Lowe)
