The Cuban Missile Crisis,' known as the October Crisis in Cuba and the Caribbean Crisis in the USSR was a thirteen-day confrontation between the Soviet Union and Cuba on one side and the United States on the other; the crisis occurred in October 1962, during the Cold War.

"I guess this is the week I earn my salary. -- John F. Kennedy, during Cuban Missile Crisis",
Before you buy into the election year partisan pablum that will swirl around the nuclear agreement with Iran, take a moment to consider the three notable instances when American leadership helped the world avoid global nuclear war.President Kennedy used direct and indirect engagement to manage the Soviets to defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis and together with Premier Khrushchev back the world away from nuclear annihilation.President Nixon opened up engagement with China and that led to both sides redefining their relationship, eventually enabling reformers to move China to a new economic openess.President Reagan accelerated the engagement with the Soviets, even using a Russian proverb "doveryai no proveryai" (trust, but verify) to sell strategic treaties that led to the fall of the Soviet Union and Berlin Wall. History is calling on us again to come to the international table as responsible, clear-headed adults. The G5 nations (U.S., UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) recognize that history has pres ...
Can you recommend any books about the Cuban Missile Crisis? (I'm on sabbatical from the Third Reich.)
Turning between channels because I can only stomach a tiny amount of the deification of JFK that's going on today.the MOST important thing I've learned about the Camelot years you ask? In the 1960's videos of JFK and Castro during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Fidel looks almost exactly like Liam Neeson.
"President Proclaims JFK Day of Remembrance" WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2013 – President Barack Obama today called on Americans to honor the memory of President John F. Kennedy and to celebrate Kennedy’s “enduring impact on American history.” Obama’s proclamation also directed that the American flag be flown at half-staff today in honor of Kennedy’s memory. The President’s proclamation reads as follows: A half century ago, America mourned the loss of an extraordinary public servant. With broad vision and soaring but sober idealism, President John F. Kennedy had called a generation to service and summoned a Nation to greatness. Today, we honor his memory and celebrate his enduring imprint on American history. In his 3 years as President of the United States, John F. Kennedy weathered some of the most perilous tests of the Cold War and led America to the cusp of a bright new age. His leadership through the Cuban Missile Crisis remains the standard for American diplomacy at its finest. In a divided B ...

JFK 50 years Later "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country" Yawn. JFK was a phony. He didn't even write this line himself. Sorry to bust the red, white and blue balloons. You want your daughter to be married to a guy like JFK? If he was not shot his legacy would be more like Clinton's than Abe Lincoln's. We like Slick Willy. But c'mon, bro. All the world tours with Bono ain't gonna prop you up. Your legacy is the guy that jammed a cigar in Monica's muffin in the Oval Office. Television was new and JFK was a young good looking Navy guy from a zillionaire family with a big name and his wife was hot too. But all the wonderful parts of life in Camelot couldn't prop up the truth of his presidency. Cheating on your wife multiple times = bad choice Lying to America = bad choice Increasing American Involvement in Vietnam = bad choice Bay of Pigs = bad choice Nepotism within the Kennedy clan = bad choice Keeping J. Edgar Hoover around = bad choice Cuban Missile Crisis = Good ...
Today is the anniversary of what I believe to be the single most important day in my life outside of my family specials. You cannot compete with a marriage or a birth of a child, November 22nd, but you are right up there in my timeline. November 22nd, 1963, with all due respect to Richie Valens, was the day the Music Died. Before that date, life was filled with hope for the future. There seemed to be no limit on the promise of America. There was even the hint of a lasting peace after the Cuban Missile Crisis the previous year. There was a sense that America was on the right path, we were at least attempting for the first time to bring equality to all people in this country so that the “brand” of this country would actually reflect its product. We were on our way to putting a man on the moon, “not because it was easy, but because it was hard”. We were dealing with our enemies to bring an end to the creation of nuclear weapons, because Man was proving that he possessed the power to undue the ...
Most Americans know tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. Yet most people don't know John Kennedy had a 95% chance of getting killed in PT boats in WWII; yet he knowingly volunteered anyway AFTER he was classified as 4F. The Navy rejected him & he used his father's influence (and friendship with Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal) to put him INTO harms way vs. the other way around. Most people don't know he created the Peace Corps AND the Green Berets, that tried hard to get Castro (some believe Castro got him first) and faced down the Soviets during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He teed off the Soviets by challenging their system indirectly via a race to space; a race indirectly designed to bankrupt their system, a strategy finalized successfully by Ronald Reagan 25 years later. Most don't know he donated almost his entire presidential salary to charity, namely the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America. His bold leadership on civil rights 50 years ago made it possi ...
As P5+1 negotiations renewed in Geneva, November 20, 2013, seeking a possible interim agreement to temporarily freeze Iranian nuclear enrichment, a renewed concern has arisen about the threat to the US of long range ICBMs being developed by the Islamic Regime. Alleged development of Iranian rocket bases in Venezuela on the Paraguaná peninsula by construction companies controlled by Iranian Revolutionary Guards was reported in 2011 by Die Welt and the Jerusalem Post from Western security sources. These were disputed by both Venezuela and the US, according to a subsequent CNN report. Nonetheless, that apocalyptic prospect concerns me as both a Floridian and a US Army veteran who experienced the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. Two separate events in recent days eerily brought home that possibility. One was an interview with Israeli spokesperson for PM Netanyahu during a Jake Tapper interview on CNN. The other was the response to questions about Iranian Missiles I posed to Israeli Brig. Gen. (r ...
Kennedy, a populist-oriented, optimistic, intelligent, charismatic, young and energetic leader, had matured and evolved much in his first three years as president after successfully navigating a crisis that could have triggered nuclear war with Russia (then the Soviet Union), and he had positioned the United States in late 1963 to address the pressing domestic and international social issues in what his supporters -- the majority of Americans -- hoped would be his second term as president after re-election in 1964. Further -- it cannot be underscored enough -- although he was a hawk on defense at the start of his presidency, Kennedy was rapidly moving toward peace and the easing of tensions between the U.S. and its Cold War rival, the Soviet Union, after the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis had nearly triggered a nuclear war between the superpowers. In addition, in regard to Vietnam -- the U.S.’ other other Cold War flashpoint in the early 1960s -- although Kennedy had originally backed sending U.S. m ...
but to JFK's credit he got us thru the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis and was big into funding space exploration.
Countdown to 11/22/13 Day 5: So who did it? Nine Suspects I swear to you, I'm trying to keep these short. If you read, "Not In Your Lifetime," you'll get all the puzzle pieces, but not the finished picture. To finish the puzzle you have to answer five questions: 1. Who had the motive? 2. Who had the opportunity? 3. Who had the means? 4. Who would gain from JFK's death, rather than waiting for an election? 5. Who could cover it up? The Warren Commission only addressed opportunity and means, and even then, only for one man. 1. Lee Harvey Oswald Motive: Oswald had no motive. The Warren Commission (WC) said he was a disaffected Communist. He Killed JFK, because JFK tried to invade/kill Castro and threatened the Soviet Union during the Cuban Missile Crisis. These conclusions were based Oswald’s radio and TV appearances in New Orleans. Both were shams, Oswald was acting as an agent of one of the U.S. Intelligence agencies at the time, most likely the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI). His Communist "legend" ...
Saw 2 interesting documentaries over the weekend on the 50 years since the JFK Assassination. One made a very compelling case that the fatal bullet on Dealey Plaza came not from Oswald but instead from a Secret Service gun in the limousine behind Kennedy. The other was concerned with the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. My father always told me how close we were to Armageddon but this documentary showed how it should have happened but somehow didn't - probably due to some amazing diplomacy from the White House and Kremlin at the 11th hour.

JFK, MLK, RFK, 50 Years of Suppressed History: New Evidence on Assassination of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy the last 50 years there have been two major threats to life on our planet. The first, the nuclear arms race and its near disaster of 1962, was narrowly averted by President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy, who then set a course for peace. The second, the ticking climate bomb on its short “business as usual” fuse, has no solution in sight. (PART II of this essay forthcoming) In both cases unseen forces have blocked a survival response to incalculable danger. We will examine these forces and suggest a way forward, modeled partially on action taken by JFK to avert nuclear war. I. Introduction Most people under 60 will not remember the harrowing Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, when the world was brought to the brink of nuclear war. With the US leading the long-range missile race, short-range Soviet missiles had been quietly installed in Cuba. Tension ignit ...

Just finished reading "Killing Kennedy" by Bill O'Reilly & Martin Dugard. With the 50th anniversary of JFK's murder in Dallas, this was a particular timely read. I couldn't put the book down. Forget the conspiracy theories -- O'Reilly leaves that to others. But the detailed insights into the main players in this story (for example, did you know Jackie was a chain smoker?) gleaned from interviews and many first-hand accounts makes this read meaningful. I couldn't put it down. Much is discussed in this book -- the Bay of Pigs, the Berlin Wall, Cuban Missile Crisis, the earliest days of Vietnam, the Kennedy connection to the Mafia through Frank Sinatra, JFK's thirst for women, insights into Lee Harvey Oswald and his wife Marina, Bobby Kennedy, J. Edgar Hoover and more. Interestingly, several years ago I worked in Dallas from an office in the federal building on the opposite side of Dealey Plaza. My office window faced the former School Book Depository and the train I rode every day passed behind the "Grassy ...

This day in U.S. military history, October 26th: 1942: The naval and air Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands was fought in the South Pacific. Though by the next day, the Japanese achieved a tactical victory, thier victory was pyyrhic. They had suffered 1 carrier heavily damaged, 1 light carrier heavily damaged, 1 cruiser heavily damaged, 99 aircraft destroyed, and 400–500 dead. American losses were 1 carrier sunk, 1 destroyer sunk, 1 carrier heavily damaged, 2 destroyers heavily damaged, 81 aircraft destroyed, and 266 dead. 1962: At the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war. The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that ...
New book, "If Kennedy Lived" by Jeff Greenfield As we near the 50th anniversary of that terrible day in Dallas when President Kennedy was assassinated, Greenfield's book reaches some interesting conclusions. First -- If JFK had remained president, it's likely he would have disengaged the US from Vietnam before any massive numbers of American troops were sent there, as happened under President Johnson. JFK was an internationalist who had come face-to-face with the Soviets in the Cuban Missile Crisis. He created the Peace Corps. He understood diplomacy and international dynamics. Whereas, President LBJ merely wanted to be sure he wasn't "the first president to lose a war." And -- If JFK had remained alive and in office, he did not have the ability to pull levers and make personal threats to US Senators as LBJ did. So, it's unlikely the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act would have gotten through Congress. The struggle for Civil Rights could have taken longer -- perhaps much longer, says Greenfield. ...

We don't have rings, but we've got everything else, and only 3 days left for you to try something out of the ordinary. Have you tried everything, or are you a plain with ketchup only?

It's good, but I prefer cooking a variety of dishes in my own home kitchen! Today's history lessen is more current than I typically choose.

He told us his children that he loved us, and he received our love in return, even though he was as proud, tough and stubborn an Irishman as ever walked. A true Hibernian, Jim McMullen, Sr. was a poet and a lover of music, especially listening to Irish tenors, playing his harmonica and his self-made “boom-ba” (a “one- man band” percussion instrument). Yes, there was more than a wee bit of the tinker in Dad as well. He had a mischievous sense of humor – and what a story teller! I loved to hear about his days here at St. Ann’s school, at Gilmore Academy, Notre Dame, and, especially, in the Army. His accounts of driving tanks to South Florida during the Cuban Missile Crisis have always fascinated me. He was also a sailor and a sportsman who loved the outdoors. Yes he ...
RootsAction "We are now within two months of what may be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis." —Harvey Wasserman, author and activist Email the U.N.

The situation demands a coordinated worldwide effort of the best scientists and engineers our species can muster. Chernobyl’s first 1986 fallout reached California within ten days. Fukushima's in 2011 arrived in less than a week. A new fuel fire at Unit 4 would pour out a continuous stream of lethal radioactive poisons for centuries.

Royal Air Force Station Coleby Grange or more simply RAF Coleby Grange was a Royal Air Force station situated alongside the western edge of the A15 on open heathland between the villages of Coleby and Nocton Heath and lying 7.4 mi (11.9 km) due south of the county town Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England. Opened in 1939 and operated as a fighter and night fighter base during World War II, occupied at various times by UK, US, Canadian and Polish fighter squadrons, the station briefly switched to a training role post-war before being placed on a care and maintenance basis. Reopened in 1959 as an RAF Bomber Command Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) launch facility and placed on a high DEFCON 2 launch alert during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the station was finally closed and decommissioned in 1963. The site has been returned to agricultural use and now has little evidence of its former use, other than several lengths of perimeter track and the original air traffic control tower
5 things to know after seeing new 'X-Men' When Stan Lee originally came up with the X-men, he made them mutants specifically so he wouldn't have to come up with individual origin stories beyond "They were born that way." Hollywood, which never takes for granted that audiences will just accept such things, has given us a prequel anyway, set during the Cuban Missile Crisis. This is all despite Bryan Singer's first "X-Men" feature being pretty clear on most of the basics And like so many superhero movies these days, it's loaded with enough characters, backstory and plot that you may need some notes at first. So here are a couple of pointers before you head into theaters this weekend to see the biggest mutant-starring movie of the summer. 1. Charles Xavier Really Is the Absent-Minded Professor: In the first "X-Men" movie, Professor X, then played by Patrick Stewart, claimed to have met arch-nemesis Magneto at age 17 and built the mutant-seeking device Cerebro with him.

SpaceShuttle Doorgunner Rick Anthony Mike Angelo As well as most of you know I’m always harking on history. History tells us a lot and we can learn from the past! But as you all know, history has a way of repeating itself, whether good or bad! In the year of 1979, I had the opportunity to be stationed at Guantanamo Bay Cuba for one year. The base was completely closed off from the country of Cuba, and the relations at the time were non-existent, with both sides feeling some hostilities, even long after the “Cuban Missile Crisis!” To my surprise the front gate at the base was still open as we were still allowing Cuban workers on the base as it was agreed upon in the contract we had with Cuba.

Scott, James Earl, 69, died Monday June 24, 2013 at home on Liberty Road. Jimmy was born June 11, 1944 to Hazel Scott, delivered by his grandmother Audrey Hart in Harlan County at Blackstar Coal Camp. His parents Hazel and Charlie Scott moved to Liberty Rd when Jimmy was 5. He attended Kenwick then Bryan Station High School and maintained many lasting friendships from those days. Jim is not one who is easily forgotten. He joined the Navy at a young age and served in the Bay of Pigs during the Cuban Missile Crisis. During that time he and wife Jo Ellen, had two children, James Earl Scott, Jr. and Kim Ann Scott-Hopkins. Never one to play strictly by the rules, Jimmy granted himself military “leave” to visit his growing family. His rebellious and spirited attitude made for an extremely colorful life. Jimmy’s quick wit and generosity gave him countless friends from all walks of life. He is survived by his sisters Elizabeth Ann (Libby) Money, Debra Roberts, a brother Tommy Scott. His two child ...
The Big E was the main carrier in the same fleet as my brother Fred Roth's ship the U.S.S. Grand Canyon AD28 back in the early 60's. Both ships were part of the naval blockade ordered by JFK during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
From the History Channel: Get me Moscow! First and foremost, although it has been portrayed in numerous films and television shows, there is no "red phone" linking the White House to Moscow. President Obama cannot simply pick up a phone in the Oval Office and find Russian President Vladimir Putin on the other end. There is, however, a secure, direct computer link allowing the two world leaders to exchange emails and chats quickly, efficiently and privately. The line was established on this day in 1963 when the United States and the former Soviet Union signed the "Memorandum of Understanding Regarding the Establishment of a Direct Communications Line" in the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The connection was deemed necessary when it took the White House 12 crucial hours to receive and translate a 3,000-word settlement offer from Nikita Khrushchev. The delay almost doomed the agreement. The original line was a teletype routed through four cities to Moscow. In 1971 the line was upgraded with two satellite ...
1963 - The so-called "red telephone" was established between the Soviet Union and the United States following the Cuban Missile Crisis.
"this leads me to answer another criticism I’ve heard frequently: Into Darkness doesn’t live up to the ideals Gene Roddenberry instilled in the Original Series and The Next Generation. Again, I can’t disagree with this more strongly. In the original series, against a backdrop of the Cold War, just a few years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, Star Trek did stories about the dangers of unchecked militarization, the dangers of seeing only black and white in a conflict, and the power of the human spirit to put aside petty differences to work together to save us all. Against the backdrop of the civil rights movement, Star Trek dared to show a multicultural crew of men and women working together as equals to bravely explore the unknown. This is the legacy we attempted to live up to in The Next Generation, and though we didn’t always succeed, we still told stories about finding peace in the midst of war, standing up for truth at all costs, and most of all the strength of the family." Wil Wheaton, review o ...
Sermon: The Father’s Voice Preached at First Presbyterian Church of Albion Father’s Day, June 16th Rev. Charlotte Ellison, M. Div. Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I think about change a lot. Our world is nothing BUT change. My grandfather’s life straddled life on the farm and life in the modern world. Railroads and telegraphs, and manufacturing were flexing their muscles when he was a boy. He died shortly after we walked on the moon. He was a visionary guy who loved every lick of it, riding the crest of a wave called “Progress”. He thought it would deliver us to a new and better shore of human existence. His optimism was hardly dimmed by the War to End All Wars. The Second World War didn’t challenge his hopefulness. Even fifty years ago, when the Cold War offered the extreme evidence to raise doubt about human “progress”, as the US and the USSR stood on the brink of nuclear holocaust over the Cuban Missile Crisis, he continued to believe that things would only get better wit ...

He is survived by his children, Theresa Michele Ellis of Aurora, Colo., Gary Michael (Barbara) Lesich of Charlottes ...
I hope the Yankees sign a Cuban player so John Sterling can incorporate Cuban Missile Crisis into his home run call.
This is the same bimbo who did not know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was. The level of stupidity in government is appalling.
WHY JFK WAS MURDERED: "Kennedy, he posits, began as a Cold Warrior committed to Pax Americana secured through superior nuclear military might. But the near cataclysmic disaster of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the isolation Kennedy experienced from his own military advisers forced him to reach out for help both publicly and in secret back-channel memos to his greatest enemy: Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. Kennedy had what some leaders might call a conversion. He turned toward peace. When the enemy is seen as human, everything changes. This conversion locked Kennedy into a death spiral with the military industrial complex and the CIA. They now considered JFK a traitor because he reached out to Khrushchev in peace, and because the CIA and the military industrial complex were fanatically committed to what General Curtis E. LeMay described as, “Pax Atomica,” the annihilation of America’s enemies through nuclear war. Kennedy showcased his new vision in June 1963 during a speech at American University in ...
Prologue: No one knows when this dream began, least of all me. There were the junior high shop classes with Mr. Moss and the high school ones with Mr. Neel. From pre-elementary years, there was a fascination with building things of wood. I even dreamed about projects. We built our own house and never seemed to quit adding on. Daddy was a mechanic and a welder of sorts, and though he became a carpenter to build the house, wood held no fascination to him. Not so for me. A book could be written about what Mr. Moss and Mr. Neel taught me, but one particular experience sticks in my mind. About the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis, when I was scared we were going to blow each other all to *** I picked up a small mesquite limb with a two inch burl in the middle. What did it look like inside? A floor mounted disc sander helped me grind away the bark to discover some very tight gorgeous reddish brown wood in the midst of a hard yellow casing. Right in the middle of all that fear, fascination took over for good. .. ...

Great piece. Soviet Perspective on the Cuban Missile Crisis from Nikita Khrushchev’s Son via
Today's Catholic Witness: June 3rd is the 50th anniversary of the death of Blessed John XXIII. He convened Vatican II, which renewed the Church through a comprehensive revision of the liturgy, increased emphasis on ecumenism, and a new dialogue between the Church and the world. He offered to mediate between Pres. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Pope John Paul II beatified him in 2000. May his example and dedication inspire us all, especially his commitment to peace and to dialogue. Bl. John XXIII, pray for us! +PAX
So the Soviets are moving missiles into Syria? Ever heard of the Cuban Missile Crisis? Sounds like the commies in Russia are flexing their muscles against the commies in Washington.
On This Day: May 29, - Historic Birthdays: John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963), often referred to by his initials JFK, was the 35th President of the United States, serving from 1961 until his death in 1963. A Catholic, Kennedy is the only non-Protestant president, and is the only president to have won a Pulitzer Prize. Events during his presidency included the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the building of the Berlin Wall, the Space Race, the African-American Civil Rights Movement and early stages of the Vietnam War. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. Lee Harvey Oswald was accused of the crime, but he was shot and killed by Jack Ruby two days later, before a trial could take place. The FBI and the Warren Commission officially concluded that Oswald was the lone assassin. However, the United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) concluded that those investigations were flawed and that Kennedy was probably assass ...

Something The Soviet Union Didn't Want Their Leadership to Know in 1962: During the onset of the Cuban Missile Crisis the United States, had 170 land based ICBMs and was quickly building more. It also had eight George Washington and Ethan Allen class ballistic missile submarines with the capability to launch 16 Polaris missiles each, with a range of 1,400 miles (2,300 km). However the Soviets only had 4 land based ICBMs, however, these were very unreliable and inaccurate. Overall, the United States had a very considerable advantage in total number of nuclear warheads (27,000 against 3,600) at the time and, more importantly, in all the technologies needed to deliver them quickly accurately. Had the Kremlin not agreed to President Kennedy's demands and engage in a military confrontation with the United State in October 1962, the Soviet Union along with Cuba would have been completely destroyed along with all known missile sites by a combination of deep missile and air strikes according the recently declassi ...
K19 accident Main article: Soviet submarine K-19 In July 1961, Arkhipov was appointed deputy commander or executive officer of the new Hotel-class ballistic missile submarine K-19. During its nuclear accident, he backed Captain Nikolai Vladimirovich Zateyev during the potential mutiny. While assisting with engineering work to deal with the overheating reactor, he was exposed to a harmful level of radiation. This incident is depicted in the American film K-19: The Widowmaker. Involvement in Cuban Missile Crisis Main article: Cuban Missile Crisis Soviet submarine B-59, forced to the surface by the U.S. Navy in the Caribbean near Cuba.On October 27, 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, a group of eleven United States Navy destroyers and the aircraft carrier USS Randolph located the diesel-powered nuclear-armed Soviet Foxtrot-class submarine B-59 near Cuba. Despite being in international waters the Americans started dropping practice depth charges, explosives intended to force the subma ...

Need some help here. Linda had surgery on Friday (all is well; she's a trouper). I went to get her some movies to watch while recuperating this week. That's where things fell apart. I picked up two horror movies (hint: don't bother with "Sinister"), a tense movie about the Cuban Missile Crisis (pretty good except for Kevin Costner's Boston accent ["That's not a pahmission slip; that's youah REPOT CAAHD"]), and a foreign film, because nothing says "get better" like subtitles. These didn't seem to hit the mark. Linda previously ordered "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen," so I do seem to be off base. I'm heading back to the library today. Can anyone give me some ideas for good movies to watch while healing?
Just finished "Killing Kennedy". If you still read books. Read this one. It chronicles JFK from PT 109, thru his early political days. There is a lot of information that I was not aware of. He suffered chronic back pain from the PT 109 crash. He had Addison's Disease. His European girl friend, during pre WWII ,was suspected of being a Nazi spy. He felt if he didn't have sex daily, he would get headaches. (only works for the President). It goes on regarding his paramours. His narrow Presidential election win. Bay of Pigs, Cuban Missile Crisis. His connection to the mob during and after the election. Marilyn Monroe, and how she may have died and who may have done the deed. Frank Sinatra, Sam Giancano Lee Harvey Oswald. Jack Ruby. How the Kennedys hated LBJ, and conspired to marginalize him. Girl friends in the White House. Nude swimming. And how, if hadn't been wearing his torso brace ,the second shot might have missed him. A great read.
Fail Safe -- Dr. Strangelove -- Seven Days in May -- 13 Days -- Missiles of October. Clearly, Kubrick did the best job of directing with Dr. Strangelove, yet Fail Safe which looks like a stage play in contrast packs a powerful, take your breath away ending that even after all the years and knowing it's coming still knocks you for a loop. 13 Days and Missiles of October were not made in the 1960s but are about a seminal event of the '60s. These films try to show what it was really like in the Cuban Missile Crisis and Bruce Greenwood's JFK is very good, almost as good as Kevin Costner's Kenny O'Donnell is bad. And Seven Days in May is in there because the military coup is over nuclear policy. And let's not forget that JFK gave a speech at the American University five months before he died where he talked about ending the Cold War and seeking peace with the Soviet Union. (Bryce Zabel)
