Many long years ago

Going to be a slow news weekend with the entire Village having fled for the holiday. Including POTUS and FLOTUS on -- gasp -- separate vacations. So how about a little US history for a Saturday afternoon? The Atlantic posts a fabulous gallery of 50 iconic photographs from 1963. (Added bonus -- all on one page). This one still brings a tear to my eye ever time I see it.

Definitely click through to view the whole gallery. Good reminder that as bad as it seems now, back then it was actually worse.

You're right, that is a sad picture.

Heartbreaking moment in history. Made even sadder because John Jr. died so tragically and so young.
