  Well yesterday turned out to be just a bit too long.  As a result there's no particular subject to write about today.  You see the day was long but not very interesting.
  This is the 50th anniversary of President John F Kennedy's death but you've heard about that for the last two weeks; on the nightly news as if it just happened.  They put that on each night at the expense of covering news that was really, for want of a better word, news.  I think his death should be mentioned on the occasion of the actual anniversary, today, but not for two or three weeks before and after.
  On that particular day a friend of mine, Donald D Greene and I were busy drinking beer at a hotel in Japan - there's a time difference - and we really didn't know until the next morning, or a few hours, after the death was announced.
  I noted this morning that steps were taken to remember JFK in Japan, they were charmed by him, and at his death the Japanese flags were flown at half mast.

  1. instead of watching the nightly news you need to watch Fox News at least they
    are fair and do not suck up to the President or any party. Wilbur
