Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Boston)This month marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Many Americans are old enough to remember where they were -- and what they were doing -- when they first heard the news. Guest Commentator Rolfe Mandel (RAHLF man-DEHL) has a vivid memory of his boyhood encounter with the president... the day BEFORE Kennedy died.
