Today is John F. Kennedy’s birthday. Wish he was still alive.
If so he’d have been 95. Not impossible, I guess, since his mother did live to be 104.
You know, over the years, I’ve wondered what the world would be like today if he, and his brother Robert, not to mention Martin Luther, Jr., hadn’t been assassinated. I like to think it would be better. But maybe not. Who knows?
There have been books with that theme – RESURRECTION DAY by Brendan Dubois, 11/22/63 by Stephen King come to mind – and it does not always turn out happily.
He’s still Prez in the Walternate Universe on Fringe.
The Kennedys don’t fare well in Robert Caro’s biographies of LBJ.
I have a feeling that if he’d lived he wouldn’t have become the legend he is.
