While I've needed to clean up some continuity and reposted some chapters for my story, Ask Not What You Can Do For Your Country, I'm reminded that today is the anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, a central character in my "do-over".
Is it worth a blog post and a teaser about the anniversary, simply raising the question, "what if things had been different?"
Final spoiler warning
It may not yet be obvious, but one of the main historical things that the story examines is what would have happened in Vietnam had Kennedy lived? I don't kill him off, and, while things have been developing in Dallas, the way I've decided to have him live is not something dramatic in the November 22, 1963 motorcade -- although I'm suggesting that a bit as I build up to it.
Happy to discuss how I do avoid his death in this thread. I think I have a rational yet surprising way to do it. In addition to keeping him alive, I form a partnership with LBJ, making civil rights, as well as Vietnam, a major theme.
