Helen Thomas and JFK once went on a date

Recommended Posts


Professor Geoffrey Wawro in his review of the new book, “JFK’s Last Hundred Days,” by Thurston Clarke writes in the current History Book Club bulletin:

“We get a sense of the peculiar pace of Kennedy’s life and presidency. For all his charm, wit and brilliance, he comes across as a fundamentally shrunken and unhappy man in the weeks before his death. Clarke describes a ‘cool-cat façade’ erected to hide the president’s ‘deeply forested interior”. Kennedy guarded many secrets, chief among them his raging libido, which was amped by the steroids he took for Addison’s disease. Sex preoccupied him and his marriage seems to have weighed as heavily on him in the last 100 days as the many foreign and domestic crises sketched by Clarke.”
