Before anyone gets TOO upset, the headline is "Betty White DYES..."

As in "hair colour". Or "color" if you are Doug Spaulding. Big Grin

Geez, I feel a little silly. Is anyone else just finding out 12 years later that it has been called Patriot Day all this time? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patriot_Day

On the November 22 episode of A Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor sang a song about Buffalo, New York, to the tune of "Camelot." I wondered if that was just a coincidence, but later he sang a song titled "JFK" recalling images familiar to anyone who remembers that day or has even studied it. It was a touching remembrance and I'll post a link as soon as it becomes available.

I checked the show's archive for last year during the 50th anniversary. On November 23 he rebroadcast an old show and had new shows on November 16 and November 30. The November 16 one was, oddly enough, from Dallas, but I don't know if JFK was mentioned. Sometime I'll try playing the podcast and let you know.

Interestingly enough, Keillor said that only about one in four Americans remembers that day. My mom and I found this surprising as people are living a lot longer nowadays and you'd think a lot of old people would still be around. I have to count myself among a select group who were around, but too young to remember. I have absolutely no firsthand recollection of a living John F. Kennedy or of the feeling of losing a president. He was a historical figure to me albeit one holding a certain fascination for me from a young age.

Young John had received lessons on executing a proper salute in preparation for a Veteran's Day trip to Arlington National Cemetery just eleven days before the assassination, but his parents were concerned as he kept doing it left-handed.



He received a refresher from a member of the military on the day of the funeral when he again did it wrong. Other than that, it was completely unrehearsed. At just the right moment, he executed a perfect salute which went down in history.
