53. Like FDR .... JFK writings are worth reading -
Bobby Kennedy's as well --

I'm not comparing JFK to FDR --

but next time you're in a book store or the library, I think you'll find

books of JFK/RFK writings --

FDR is ALWAYS worth reading and think most of his stuff is on the internet and very

worthwhile as history repeats, as they say!


And, then, re JFK, there are the tapes -- the Cuban Missile Crisis was pretty much

all captured on tapes -- including the insanity of the Joint Chiefs --

and "nuke 'em" Gen. Curtis La May -- !!
