A speech from JohnF from 1961. There is plenty in it that is as timely now as it was then, if not more. It contains as many, if not far more, potential offenses against the then-PTB than just silver certificates. When thinking about men like JohnF, I am reminded of the need for inspiring, thoughtful and honest leadership. The ever-declining quality of the ‘facsimilies’ thereof that are served up to us (as opposed to rising up from among the people), has gotten to be alarming as the decades rolled on.
And of course the ever-popular, yet mysterious Executive Order 11110: what was it, what did it mean, and could it have contributed to (or caused) the national shock that took place five decades ago today.
