: There are several different things at play here that you may not understand, or that just may affect you differently. While I do not believe anyone wishes for a monarchy in America, I think it is a perfectly natural human condition to wish for a HERO from time to time. We may not always pick the right people, but we are certainly not abnormal for looking for someone we can hold up as an example of the things we would like to find in ourselves.
>>> Marcia, yes, I understand that. Maybe it's just that I sometimes wonder why the masses often pick heros who did so little to deserve that status other than being their parents' child while the real heros, those without glitz whose backs are bent from working for others, often go through life unnoticed.
I perfectly understand your admiration for the President JFK, though.
