This Was A Man

Did you know that JFK gave his entire salary to charity, from the time he entered Congress in 1947 to the time he died? Just learned this from reading Ben Bradlee's Conversations With Kennedy. The charities were: the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts, the United Negro College Fund, Boys Club of America, National Association for Retarded Children, Girls Club of America, and Federation of Jewish Philanthropies. And Paul Johnson in his History of the American People said Kennedy was "mean," as if he'd known him. Of course Jackie wasn't too happy about it...

Anyway, makes you think.
