    Default Chapters 1-11: Welcome, Mr. Kennedy, to Dallas

    Here's the full-page "Welcome to Dallas" ad that appeared in The Dallas Morning News on the Morning of November 22, 1963 (the day of the assassination):

    I vaguely remember a teacher in high school talking about how the "history" of Kennedy would always be lost because of the assassination. In high school I wasn't sure I cared, but looking back, I get the teacher's point. For the most part, the only history concerning Kennedy that is discussed is the assassination. I do recall a few lessons from that teacher--he talked about some of the less admirable Kennedy traits (personal traits and some of the policies that caused the US problems long after Kennedy's assassination.)

    I never thought of it that way but I see what that teacher means. It is pretty much all we seem to remember about JFK and his administration. Great point...

    The teacher made the comment that JFK got off easy in the history books--because of the assassination, his policies were largely forgotten--along with his mistakes and womanizing (with the exception, possibly of the Cuban crisis, but even then people don't recall his role very well.) I'm not so certain the womanizing was forgotten or perhaps it is less forgotten now because so many politicians keep getting "caught" and these days the media is much more likely to "disclose" such indiscretions.
