Rapper Vanilla Ice was one of the unlucky passengers on board an Emirates flight from Dubai quarantined for hours at John F. Kennedy Airport Wednesday. The “Ice Ice Baby” hitmaker was returning from a show in Dubai when he found himself on Flight 203 to JFK, where about 100 people complained of feeling sick on board. "So I just landed from Dubai and now there is like tons of ambulances and fire trucks and police all over the place," he tweeted. The rapper posted a video from the window of the double-decker plane. "Well a couple people got sick on the plane and it must be pretty serious because there's a lot of people out there," he says as he looks out the window at a mass of emergency response vehicles on the runway.

FOR decades, the existence of top secret government files linked to President John F Kennedy's assassination has helped fuel conspiracy theories behind who was really behind the killing. The mysterious documents have partly been released, we look at the top theories. What are the JFK assassination conspiracy theories? Out of all the events in American history, the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy has probably spawned the most widely held conspiracy theories.

Juan Romero was a teenage Mexican immigrant working as a hotel busboy 50 years ago when he was thrust into one of the seminal moments of the decade. Romero had just stopped to shake the hand of Robert F. Kennedy on the night of his victory in the California presidential primary on June 5, 1968 when a gunman shot the New York senator in the head. Romero held a wounded Kennedy as he lay on the ground, struggling to keep the senator's bleeding head from hitting the cold floor of the Ambassador Hotel kitchen. For almost a half-century, Romero blamed himself, wondering if he could have done more and often asked, what if Kennedy hadn't stopped for that brief moment to shake my hand? The torment ate at Romero so much he fled Los Angeles and resettled in seclusion in Wyoming. Today, nearly 50 years after that tragic early morning, the 67-year-old Romero doesn't bear the same guilt, thanks in part to the support of RFK fans who say the former busboy was an example of the type of people Kennedy … [Read more...] about Man Who Held Dying Robert F.
