50th anniversary! How many of y’all feel old?
***Raising my hand***
I was just under voting age when Kennedy ran in 1960 so I didn't have the opportunity to vote against him. Nevertheless, I campaigned and worked hard to get Richard Nixon elected. Nixon had not yet gone soft was still a fearless fighter against the commies. It's now clear that the presidential election was stolen by Jack Kennedy and his corrupt crowd -- his booze-running father and the Chicago machine. The Nixon of 1968 was far from the reliable Conservative of eight years earlier.
Well, I was out of diapers when JFK was killed. I remember Bobby’s death though. I learned in elementary what “brain death” meant. I prayed hard too. Oh, well. You grow up fast in the South!
