2. What RFK said about JFK at the '64 Democratic Convention

"When I think of my brother John, I think of the poet Shakespeare, when he wrote in "Romeo and Juliet":
'When he shall die, take and cut him in little stars, and he shall make the face of Heaven so fine, that all the world will be in love with night, and pay no worship to the garish sun'."

5. It's my Birthday
When JFK was assassinated on my 15th, I knew on every birthday I would be reminded of it.

True even after 43 years.

7. It's mine too. I was 17 that day in 1963.
I'll never forget those 4 days of sitting glued to the tv. Seeing the pictures and watching Ruby kill Oswald. Hearing the muffled drums. It's a sadness that stays with you all these years.

6. Scarborough just played a clip of JFK's "country" oratory then
Bush asking stupid questions. Pathetic.

No mention of JFK's assassination, though. Assholes.
