Dr. Mr. Sorensen, I listened to the letter to Khrushchev and it sounded to me that you were calling/challenging him to become an advocate for peace. It sounded that he was treated with respect, as an equal. And it worked. I wouldn't know whether it was just psychologically astute and skillful word smithing, or if you did consider him an equal and understood that there was only one way to successfully resolve the conflict. I pray that a few sharp young men and women in today's political 'blood banks' are fortifying themselves by digesting some of your wisdom.
NYC /Sorensen on demand:
Excellent. Thank you.
Instead of having these corrupt legislative officials decide how our money is spent, why dont we have the public take a vote on how large sums of money is spent.
...it was known to the world,that JFK wanted to eliminate the sourcesthat made thir world countries rise in arms,and embrace the eastern phylosofies.That represented a threat to the big-corporate world, to capitalism. My question is -since im an immigrant- if he had succeded, don'tyou think that the immigration to the ee.uu.would've been dramatically less?
