A Fresh Take on JFK 40 Years Later

OpinionJournal carried an interesting piece celebrating how America is finally forgetting the Camelot mystique surrounding the Kennedys long enough to realize that he was:

[A] president frantically "high" on pills of all kinds (that's when he was not alarmingly "low" for the same reason), a president quick on the draw and willing to solicit Mafia hit men for his foreign policy, a president willing to risk nuclear war to save his own face; a president who bugged his own Oval Office, a president who used the executive mansion as a bordello, and a president whose name we might never have learned if not for the fanatical determination of his father to purchase him a political career.
