25. JFK Issue

July 2, 1998

Q: I remember an issue with JKF on the cover.

A: That would be February ’77—“Grand Fifth Term Inaugural Issue: JFK’s First 6,000 Days” which featured a silver-haired JFK on the cover. The whole issue was a big “what if…” about how things might have turned out had the assassin’s bullet missed JFK and hit Jackie instead. A very good issue—neatly skewering the Kennedy myth: US steers clear of Vietnam, but ends up in Northern Ireland instead.
