Friday Quotations: Apparently, He Didn't Believe in Worshiping Celebratory Figures Either

"The fact that Kennedy was a howling little shit doesn't prove that there wasn't a plot to do him in. Indeed, like many a godfather before him, he may have been slain by precisely the same forces that he himself set in motion." --Christopher Hitchens, 1992.

I love the personality that comes through in this quotation. Here's a guy who refused to acknowledge any idol, in multiple senses of the word.

Later Days.
