Cool tool:
Nice collection of JFK stories from Knight Ridder papers, linked on The Herald as well as the other sites. I especially like this beautiful story in the Charlotte Observer about one of JFK's Secret Service agents, who drove the hearse with the body to Air Force One. Andy Berger can't remember any of it any more, he has Alzheimer's at 66. Despite this, the tale of Berger and his wife is a love story.
The cool thing: someone must have used Amazon's book search tool to find mentions of Andy Berger in books. They came up with 3, including several mentions in William Manchester's Death of a President. Congrats to whoever at the Observer thought of doing this. Researchers take note.
