Jackie Kennedy listens to her husband's speech at the Hotel Texas, Fort Worth on the morning of November 22. After a ticker tape parade, they boarded Air Force One for the brief flight to Dallas, where she continued to wear the same pink suit. www.lberger.ca
Charles Darwin liked to freak out his friends—for science. He showed 24 guests in 1868 a set of “ghoulish” photos of a guy being prodded in the face with an electrical current. Darwin then asked his guests/guinea pigs to describe the emotion displayed in each photo. Darwin hoped to determine what universal core emotions exist (if any) and what culturally modified variations branch from them. The result was Darwin’s book The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.
JFK - "...we shall pay any price..." Will Liberty Survive? Will the Constitution that ensures it survive? Questions then and questions now of the same import. Tough times then - tough times now. 1962 was as key a year in our Nation's History as the year 2012.
