Still shambling the streets of the city Nelson Algren defined, I am the Monster in a madhouse refined. Burma Shave.
For years, liberals used the image of Kennedy the way dumb-ass right wing closet racist pro-corporate shills use that of Ronald (Alzheimer's) Reagan.
In many white ethnic Catholic homes, the photos of Daley and Kennedy are placed together. A picture of the pope is not far from either. That completes the trinity. The only clue as to the owner's real politics is whether the pope on the wall is John XXIII or JPII. Or, if the JFK pic is missing, it has more to do with racism than with marital indiscretions or the Bay of Pigs (though many confuse the latter two).
