50th JFK anniversary

Regardless of your political persuasion or personal opinion on John F. Kennedy, if you have any interest in American history or the Kennedy mystique, I cannot recommend highly enough a show currently running on PBS: An American Experience, JFK, a two part, four hour series that focuses not on any conspiracy theories on the assassination, but rather on JFK’s life, his struggles with overcoming great personal adversity, and a straight forward overview of his brief Presidency and its successes and failures.

“Man, is Vaughn Meader fucked.” - Lenny Bruce’s opening line on Nov 22 (or 23, depending on who you ask) 1963.
