November 22 is always a solemn reminder of the death of JFK. As much as I have come to dislike some of the Kennedy clan, I am still saddened by the assassination. JFK did make us proud of our country when he was president. He represented youth, vigor and intelligence. Jack and Jackie were almost like royalty. Much of this died with JFK and the coming of Viet Nam. Camelot died with him.
Now all we have for royalty is Tom and Katie. We are indeed in sad shape. We are mired in a war that has caused much of the world to hate us. We need another hero to ride in on a white horse and give us pride in our country. I see no one on the horizon. Hillary is sure not it and I don’t think Tom and Katie can manage to pull it off. Hopefully, someone will emerge in the next two years.

Alas, you are right. It is going to be hard to find that hero on a white horse when all of our leaders today either steal the horse or sell it to the highest foreign bidder. The white horse probably has died of neglect or malnutrition anyway because we send everything abroad.
