50 years ago this past Friday some silly little communist shot a politician in a Texas city and all sorts of legends and bullshit was spawned. Mostly bullshit, as far as I can tell.

Spare me. The only thing of significance Jack Kennedy ever did was die.

In fact, the best of the Kennedys died in a B17 over Europe, and I suspect he only gets the "best of" award because he didn't live long enough to muck it up. The rest of them haven't been worth a tinkers damn, and the littlest one should have been imprisoned for manslaughter. In a perfect world that would have saved him from being shot for treason.

But in this world the SOB's are idolized.

The best thing I can think to say about any of them is they can do no further harm.

Except that they bred like rabbits. We're going to be stuck with that bunch for a long time. The only thing I can think of that JFK really did was give a pretty good speech. The messed up the whole bay of pigs thing and nearly started a nuclear war. He's also the one that got us into Viet Nam. Of course the troops he sent were "advisers".

The old man made his millions smuggling Irish whiskey into the country during prohibition. A family full of crooks, murderers and liars. T%hat's a gene pool that needs a shit load of chlorine.
