Hard to believe that it’s been 50 years since that fateful day in Dallas. Yours truly was in first grade when the bullets struck and changed the course of history. Ivan Eland and I talked about JFK’s performance in office and how his myth evolved. It’s amazing how charismatic leaders get judged by history. There seems to be a double standard, one for presidents who are ordinary people and another for those who seem to be somehow larger than life. The advent of the electronic media hasn’t helped much either. The good thing is that the Internet helps unravel the spin and gives you a much clearer perspective on what actually happened. As far as who really killed Kennedy, we’ll leave that for the next crop of conspiracy theorists.
