Artist at work

Hiii! I've never posted here before, but uh... I worship the ground JFK metaphorically walked on, and therefore that led to this...
I drew a portrait of John on the anniversary of his assassination, a few days ago, and I figured I'd post it here... Because, well, I don't know any other people obsessed with the Kennedys :)

Frankly there's a few things I wish I could change, but I really do like how it turned out. :D

Query

Hello all,

Forgive me in advance if this is not allowed.

In my history class we are discussing JFK and his presidency. My teacher favors discussion centered classes and would like us to defend reasons why JFK was a good president while he takes the negative. He feels this gives us a good perspective on both sides and actual knowledge on our own parts. So, I figured who better to ask for help than members of a community dedicated to the Kennedy's?  :)

Why do you think JFK was a good president? What did he do that makes him so?

So, once more, if this is an unwelcome post, I'm really sorry.

This month's "Vanity Fair"

Hi everyone,
There's an article in this month's Vanity Fair about Jackie Kennedy.  It's called "The Two First Ladies", and it's written by Margaret Leslie Davis.

The synopsis:
It began on May 11, 1962, as a spur-of-the-moment promise by France’s minister of culture, André Malraux, dazzled by Jacqueline Kennedy: he would send the Mona Lisa to America. Then, as Presidents John F. Kennedy and Charles de Gaulle tussled over nuclear policy, the Cuban missile crisis erupted. In an excerpt from her new book, the author tells how Mrs. Kennedy turned the unprecedented, perilous loan of da Vinci’s masterpiece into a powerful Cold War symbol of Western ideals.


It's on page 222 of the magazine, and it can also be found here: http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2008/11/monalisa_excerpt200811

Heya! How are you all? :)

I'm looking for screencaps of Bobby Kennedy's speech before the showing of the film about his brother at the 1964 Democratic Party convention, and I was wondering if anyone here would be able to help me out? Though the whole speech would be nice, I'd really like some of Bobby smiling during the 22 minute ovation. :)

You know. That smile! The one that makes your heart feel like it's about to explode into a million little pieces? :P

I meant to post the other night to give a heads up that Bobby Jr. was gonna be on Larry King and I totally forgot. BUT, I just read they are gonna re-air it Sunday night if anyone missed it and wants to catch it. He's on talking about gas prices and alternative energy sources... =)

Edit: BTW, has anyone read the new book by Thurston Clarke The Last Campaign about Bobby's run for the presidency? I just finished it and it was fantastic.
