12. It's funny this came up, I was at my parent's Sunday for dinner.

Dad is a devout Kennedy backer from when Jack first ran for office.

He sent JFK five dollars for his senate campaign, (Dad only made $25 a week back then) and in return received his picture, signed by John F. Kennedy himself, and a letter personally thanking my father for the donation.

That picture and letter has hung in a place of honor in every home my father has had.


After John was murdered, he backed Bobby with all his heart, and it damn near killed my father when they murdered him, too.


Anyway, we always talk politics after dinner over tea, and Dad said that killing Bobby was the best way to stop us from ever finding out who killed his brother, and he said when it happened he finally realized that this nation was not so much different from any other nation where assassination of your political opponents is accepted practice to further your agenda.
