Anniversary

Anniversary

Today is the 39th anniversary of the assassination of JFK and the 38th anniversary of the media’s commemoration of it. I don’t mean to sound cold-hearted, but how long will we have to endure interminable tales from baby boomers recalling where they were when they heard the news? I just wonder if Americans in the 19th century spent so much time eulogizing Abraham Lincoln for decades after his death. But then it’s not really about JFK’s death or Lincoln’s death, it’s about Boomer self-absorption, as if they were the only generation to endure upheaval or tragedy.
