How fleeting is fame


I just went down to pick up some exams from admin and when I went to sign for them I had to ask the date, which is apparently November 22. So I said, oh look, it’s the anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination. And from the blank look, I did have to ask, do you know who Kennedy was, John F. Kennedy, you know, the former president of the United States? Did not know, had never heard of him, his name did not even ring the most distant bell.

For those who do not know since she would hardly be unique: November 22, 1963: Death of the President. It truly was a day that changed the world.
