From PBS and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: Forever enshrined in myth by an assassin's bullet, Kennedy's presidency long defied objective appraisal. Recent assessments have revealed an administration long on promise and vigor, and somewhat lacking in tangible accomplishment. His proposals for a tax cut and civil rights legislation, however, promised significant gains in the months before his assassination. While maturation, as evidenced in the handling of the Cuban missile crisis, was apparent, the potential legacy of the New Frontier will forever be left to speculation.

Further adventures in massive revisionism from the Koch-financed bunch, PBS. Remind me again, please, why Bill Moyers cannot interview properly, but will always be popular with the easily duped? Suggest Prof. Donald Gibson's book, Battling Wall Street: the Kennedy presidency. Also, Rockefellerocracy, by Richard James Desocio. What was amazing was not only how much was accomplished by the Kennedy Administration in the short period of his presidency, but the long lasting effects of some of the programs created: the Internet and the NASA space program. [Care to list all the technological achievements and tangential improvements from these two items?] Rated this revision an atrocity! [Executive order to ban any and all segregation in federally-financed housing, integrated University of Mississippi, integrated US Secret Service, pressured for integration of Washington Redskins football team, and set the tone for further integration, created the Alliance for Progress - - thoroughly compromised after JFK's assassination, but meant to push for land reform throughout Latin America, stood up to GE and US Steel, backing the rights of the workers, created the Navy SEALS, not to overthrow democratically elected governments, but aid insurgents who were working to install democracy, went after offshored money of the super-rich, to force rightful taxes to be paid, et cetera, et cetera, plus laid the groundwork legislation for Johnson to enact, but most of all, saved us from nuclear war!] Further reading suggested: JFK and the Africans by Philip E. Muehlenbeck, Showdown by Thomas G. Smith, The Echo From Dealey Plaza, by Abraham Bolden.
