LOVE AND EGGS ARE BEST WHEN THEY ARE FRESH - Russian Proverb

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th U.S. President, was born on May 29, 1917 in Brookline, MA.  A child of wealth and influence, he studied at the London School of Economics and graduated from Harvard.  In 1941, at the start of World War II, he was commissioned as an ensign in the Navy and earned medals for his bravery as commandant of PT Boat 109 in action against the Japanese.

Elected to the U.S. Senate in 1952, he married Jacqueline Bouvier a year later.  They would have three children, one of whom died.  He was elected President in 1960 and was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963

Fanatically popular, his presidency was known as an 
AMERICAN CAMELOT
A period of hope and optimism in U.S. history.

Throughout the Kennedy presidency, rumors presisted of his infidelities.  He and his brother, Robert, were linked in conversation in the life and subsequent death of Marilyn Monroe.  His wife at one point left him, spending an extended period on the yatch of a man she would later marry, only to return later to JFK.  In 2003, a JFK biographer made known to the public that, in deed, JFK had an affair with a 19 year old White House aide.

In the summer of 1962, 19-year-old Mimi Beardsley began an internship in the White House Press office.  On her third day she was introduced to the President.  Naive, innocent and emotionaly unprepared for the charisma and power of this young President, he turned on the full force of his charm and took her virginity in his wife's bed room.  

He made no profession of love for her, never even kissed her on the lips.  He spent a lot of time in the bath tub with her, probably soaking his back, injured in the service.  He had her perform oral sex on a friend, although she refused to have sex with his younger brother, Ted.  The affair lasted for 18 months until the JFK assassination.  A book describing the affair hit the book stands yesterday.



John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton, (1834-1902), was a historian and moralist.  In a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton in 1887 Baron Acton opined:


POWER TENDS TO CORRUPT,
AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY.
GREAT MEN ARE ALMOST ALWAYS BAD MEN 




George Washington had his Sally Fairfax
Thomas Jefferson his Betsey Walker
Warren Hardy had his Nan Britton
Herbert Hoover had his Dorothy Lamour
Franklin D. Roosevelt had his Lucy Mercer
Dwight D. Eisenhour had his Kay Summersby
Bill Clinton has his Monica Lewinski 

ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTED!
