If you’re from Massachusetts then you know JFK is a goddamn legend around these parts. Seriously, I grew up with framed photos of JFK all around my parents’ house. An Irish Catholic Boston boy became the most powerful man in the world; no wonder he’s a folk hero around here. As Frank Costello said in The Departed:
“Twenty years after an Irishman couldn’t get a fucking job, we had the presidency.”
Not to mention the guy was smooth as silk and (allegedly) dated the most famous actress ever in Marilyn Monroe. But of course Lee Harvey Oswald had to go and fuck that up for everyone. 50 years later and people still aren’t entirely sold on what exactly happened or if it could have been prevented. Having sealed, classified documents for five decades breeds skepticism? Go figure. Well Donald Trump just said fuck it lets get in there and allowed a ton of previously unseen docs to hit the public eye. Haven’t had a chance to dive into them myself, but I’m sure we’ll learn some juicy details. From what I’ve heard its more of the CIA and the FBI shit the bed on preventing the assassination rather than second shooter conspiracy cover ups. Either way, buckle up because this should be an interesting couple of weeks.
