Thirty-nine years ago today, we lost Robert Kennedy. Jim Booth at Scholars and Rogues writes about what Bobby meant to him.
I was a 16 year old at the time and was watching on live t.v. I think his death marked not only the end of my political innocence, but also the end of the era when someone could win just because he was the best man and not because he had deep pockets and deep connections. If Bobby had been elected, EVERYTHING would have been different.
