Oh, but you are a pup! I wasn't old enough to vote for JFK - Humphrey
was my first, but I was more than old enough to really be paying
attention. I will be honest enough to say that I was captivated by JFK
at the time, and thought he was fabulous. But in the full light of time,
history, whatever, I think he was really his father with a better public
face. Ironically, personally flawed Ted is, politically, the real thing.
And I suspect that "the good Bobby," post 64, was as well.

I hate to rub it in, but I was still a gleam in my fathers eye...
Growing up I got Ronnie/Gorbi/Schmidt/Kohl and stupid A-bomb drills were

we would sprint across the soccer field and hide in the bicycle cellar. 
Even at age 12 we didn't fall for that one... ;-)
