But newly disclosed medical files covering the last eight years of Kennedy's life, including X-rays and prescription records, show that he took painkillers, antianxiety agents, stimulants and sleeping pills, as well as hormones to keep him alive, with extra doses in times of stress.

Either that, or his medical records got mixed up with Marilyn Monroe's.

Did he take any medications for sexually transmitted diseases?

And would the author tell us if Kennedy did suffer from these ailments?

what I think is that our past president despite all the rumors was probably impotent....his famous love life although it looked good on paper was much ado about nothing.....

with all those medicines and disease, I doubt he could do too much romanticizing except maybe in his brain....

""Some people are sick and others are well."

And in the case of Teddy, some people are sleeping off a hangover while others are drowning.

Given this list of medications, especially the opiates and the barbiturates, JFK would have ineligible for most good jobs in American industry today- and definitely for any overseen by the Department of Transportation (with mandatory drug testing).

But of course, since he was a Democrat, all these illnessess and drugs did not impair his judgement!

Give me a break.

"I was with J.F.K. for 11 years," Mr. Sorensen said in an interview, "and for so many of those I was trying to refute, rebut rumors that he was suffering from this disability or that, and that's why as a general rule, if those medical files were placed in the library under very restricted conditions by the family, as the family's nominee, I just couldn't agree that they would be opened to any Tom, Dick or Harry because I knew a bunch of them would seek to exploit them."

In other words, "I lied in public and in private for all of those years, and I wasn't about to let the truth come out"...

On that date, probably still far into the future, when the medical records of the "Former Occupant of the Oval Office, 1993-2001" are released, the reasons for his continued impaired judgment will become clear. A psychological evaluation, and a complete list of the prescription and non-prescription drugs in his system, would do much to clarify to historians how the dumbfounding and truly scary years of the decade of the 1990's and the ensuing aftermath came to be.

The records say nothing about treatment by Dr. Max Jacobson, a Manhattan physician who later lost his medical license for prescribing amphetamines. The Times detailed his involvement years ago, but the files said "nothing, nil," about Dr. Jacobson, Mr. Dallek said.

In other words, Dr. Jacobson kept no records of all the other drugs he was giving Kennedy. The fun stuff.

A committee of three longtime Kennedy family associates, who for decades refused all requests to look at the records, granted Mr. Dallek's, in part because of his "tremendous reputation,"

That's a crock of BS. This is the same Robert Dallek who is featured in the PBS Reagan Biography and it is clear that he hates Reagan and is not at all unbiased. All Dalleck talks about in the Reagan film is how people were "scared" of Reagan and Goldwater.

So on top of everything else, King Arthur was a hypochondriac as well? Typical effete degenerate -- dissipated blood line, privileged upbringing that reinforced a hereditary superiority his genes couldn't bear. All form and no substance. Consequently, the defining personality of the Democratic Party in the latter half of the 20th century.

And of course the democrat hierarchy hid this from the public during the election just like they did FDR's condition ( they knew he was a dying man and wouldn't last a year )at the time of the 44 elections

I see a lot of psychotropic drugs here. What we had was basically a punk kid who had to be pumped up to function superficially, and needed to be pumped down to sleep.

The media became of predominant importance with FDR.(Radio)FDR had the brains to use the media. The then media was totally FDR's tool. JFK was the first in American history to be totally created and maintained by the media. In short, the first media creature in history.

Isn't it great of the media to lie to us for forty years and then they _still_ continue to withhold critical information on a forty year dead president and ask to be taken seriously. :-(

The New York Times would be suitable for house-breaking new puppies except that to use it for that purpose would be to subsidize those pathological liars.

In an interview this week, Mr. Schlesinger, 85, said that Kennedy "did draw a distinction between true Addison's and broadly construed Addison's" but that he did not know why.

Simple. Because like his protege, Bubba Clinton, Kennedy said it depended on what "is is".
