    November 22, 1963 ... a terrible day in America

    Many of you are too young to remember President Kennedy; as figure recede into history they become pictures and words on a page...

    What I miss most about our 35th President is his wit and humor...

    Please take a few minutes and get to know him a little better...

    I just received the following wire from my generous Daddy - "Dear Jack, Don't buy a single vote more than is necessary. I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for a landslide."

    John and Robert Kennedy were the truly great Kennedys.

    Hey Yuk, you said you were on the corner of Elm and North Hudson St...

    That would put you in Hammond Indiana about 2 miles from the shores of Lake Michigan.

    You have keen eyesight...

    I am particularly glad to become a Yale man because as I think about my troubles, I find that a lot of them come from other Yale men."
