DID JFK EVEN PAUSE TO CONSIDER HOW IT MIGHT EFFECT ME?:

Christopher Hitchens liked guys, hated JFK (Kyle Smith, May 2, 2010, NY Post)

The British expat vividly remembers boarding school, where 13-year-old Hitch blamed John F. Kennedy for nearly starting a nuclear war over the Cuban missiles: "I shall never forget where I was standing and what I was doing on the day [Kennedy] nearly killed me." Hitchens adds, "When Kennedy was shot the following year, I . . . felt no particular sense of loss at the passing of such a high-risk narcissist."

Unless his boarding school was in downtown Havana he was pretty safe.
