I listened to “California Uber Alles” by the Dead Kennedy’s earlier today. I hadn’t heard it in a long time. I’ve never been overly impressed with the Dead Kennedy’s as a punk band. However, as my mind wandered, I started thinking about the Kennedy’s and JFK, and how long he had been dead–and I made one of those eerie connections where I realized that JFK was killed 43 years ago today.
I remember where I was when Reagan was shot. Kennedy was nearly a decade before my time.
