103. Wow! What was Mr. Black like?
What did you talk about?

Eugenics and the California connection? IBM and the Holocaust?

The man is a national treasure.

Sorry, my Friend. I don't mean to sound too nosey, but that must've been some evening.

If I were there, I'd ask him about the case of Abraham Bolden, the first African American to serve on the White House Secret Service detail -- assigned there at the insistance of President Kennedy. Bolden reported the President's security detail was lax and drank heavily when traveling with the JFK. For telling the truth, he got demoted and shipped to a desk job in Chicago. While there, he heard about a planned attempt on the President's life early in November, 1963. The plot was broken up, but remained virtually unknown for decades. Bolden tried to tell the story to J Lee Rankin, chief counsel for the Warren Commission, but was immediately framed, tried and convicted -- on the testimony of a couple of Mafia goons. Although one later recanted, Mr. Bolden spent six years in the federal pen.
