Reflections On RFK

NPR had some very good coverage of the 40th anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination the other day and I think it is worth reposting here. Check it out!

"RFK's Shooting Turned Photographer into Historian"
"Writer Remembers RFK's Death"
"Jack Newfield, Looking for the Man in RFK Myth"
"RFK Assassination Sparked Changes in Secret Service"
"RFK Delivers News of King's Death"
"Should Site of RFK Assassination Be Preserved?"
"Pete Hamill Recalls RFK"
"Ted Sorensen Recalls Tragedy Repeated"

Here is one of RFK's '68 ads:
