Thread Name: BS: Nov 22: Anniversary of Kennedy Killing
Subject: RE: BS: Today: Anniversary of Kennedy Killing
I was sitting under the kitchen table while my mother made marmalade, and I couldn't work out why she was crying so much (even though I was nearly five).
Both my parents idolised JFK, and my mother was often told she looked like Jackie, which pleased her no end. Thankfully neither of them lived long enough to have their naive idealism dashed by what's now known about JFK. That said, history could have given us many far worse presidents.
