As a distant cousin to Vidal, please allow me to make an important distinction as to his animosity towards John F.

For a more balanced viewpoint on the Kennedy presidency, please read the following two books:

Battling Wall Street: the Kennedy presidency, by Donald Gibson

Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years, by David Talbot

Please wait...
