I set my DVR to record "The Kennedys", a series on Reelz channel, some time ago.
I downgraded our Directtv package recently, so we no longer have that channel, but we still had that series on the DVR.
Tonight Cliff and I finally got around to watch the five episodes of "The Kennedys" that I actually managed to record. Wow, what a great series.
So many memories. And yes, I do remember exactly where I was when I got the news that President Kennedy had been shot.
Something else I recall, though, is that when he was running for office, everyone in my little world was afraid that if a Catholic won the election, the Pope would rule our country.
Good grief, were we all nuts?
As we were watching the episodes, Cliff and I agreed that things were better back when the press didn't feel it necessary to tell the public about every little indiscretion the President committed. We think it would work out better if they would leave a man's private life alone.
But that's just us.
