As long as J.Edgar Hoover, with his low-down and dirty ways that spit on our Constitutional rights to privacy and our Constitutional right to speak-freely and protest, was telling his dirty-tales, we felt fine spreading the news like gossip. Because it doesn't hurt so bad when we think it's gossip. (Back Then, we didn't want Jackie Kennedy to marry Onassis for the same reason. She was OUR First Lady--an all American First Lady. We thought we had a right to speak out against what we thought was inappropriate for our FLOTUS like marrying Onassis. We didn't think he was good enough for her. We worried about her. She was so poised and graceful and made us feel good as Americans. You see we loved her because we loved John Kennedy. He gave his life for his country like Martin and Robert and Malcolm. But then we heard John's underbelly stories too and Marilyn Monroe's name was tossed around like so much candy. Later on, came Bill Clinton and again we had those feelings again when his under-belly was revealed. He lied trying to cover the truth and Americans were more angry over the lie than the whatchamacallit he done. In the end, the icons survived but maybe they felt pain hearing us talking about them and what they did and what they do when they feel they need to do it. WE gave been told clearly that our icons have personal lives. AND, we say yes they do but we want to hear about it and comment about it. AND, we are serious. Our icons do what they do and put their lives on the line doing it, just like our soldiers, but we want to know about it and comment about it.Read more ›
