THE KENNEDY DYNASTY 1011

THE KENNEDY DYNASTY

The American press and networks send us millions of words a year about the world’s most powerful man and the extraordinary modern dynasty he springs from. By now we know as much as we need to about the Kennedys’ glamorous legend — and less than we’d like to about the real men and women who made it.

THOSE SUMMERS IN TORONTO

EARLY IN THE SUMMER of 1961 a man from one of the wire services telephoned and told me that Ernest Hemingway was dead. I couldn’t believe it. After a pause I said, “Don't worry, he’ll turn up again.” The newspaperman insisted that Hemingway had blown his head off with a shotgun.

THE CRIMINAL RECORD OF THE MIRACLE DRUGS

WHEN THE NEW “wonder” drugs began to flood the market some years ago, a farseeing physician repeatedly warned his medical students: “Gentlemen, never forget that the age of dangerous surgery is drawing to a close but the age of dangerous medicine is just beginning.”
THE CASE FOR A DIVI DED GERMANY 2223

THE CASE FOR A DIVI DED GERMANY

IN THE PAST DOZEN YEARS the Western alliance has painted itself into a very tight corner in Germany. On the one hand we are solemnly pledged, by treaty, to try by all peaceful means for the unification of Germany. On the other hand the unification of Germany by peaceful means is impossible, now or in the foreseeable future.
THE EMOTIONS 1819

THE EMOTIONS

FEAR IS the paralyzing emotion. In 1943, it killed two hundred people in a London bomb shelter in a matter of minutes, none of them even bruised — the lights had gone out when a bomb struck nearby and they simply stopped breathing. Fear also causes the spectacular voodoo deaths and, less sensationally, the dying by degrees of civilized people who constantly are afraid of ill health or misfortune.

Remember 1962? It was a big year for folk, songs, women's wigs, Caroline Kennedy, electric swizzlesticks, Sophia Loren and safflower oil. But it wasn’t our year. For Canadians, it was the Year of the Great Let-Down. Slowly we faced the awful suspicion that Sir Wilfrid Laurier might have been wrong about the twentieth century.

Diary: Tory rebels; a new daily; how to outsmart fluoride

George Hogan Jr. and Terry Nugent are moderately important Conservatives who have embarrassed very important Conservatives by saying out loud what they think of the Diefenbaker government’s foreign policy. On issues like Cuba, Canadian-U.S. relations and nuclear arms for Canada, Hogan is further right than the party and Nugent is further left than they thought any Tory could possibly be — until last October.

East of Berlin’s wall: shop talk with two happy defectors

WHAT HAPPENS to a fierce young radical when he moves to a land where the cause he supports has already triumphed, the revolution is over, and the workers’ paradise actually in the making? I knew of course that he must become, or seem to become, conservative — anything else would be counterrevolutionary, and therefore forbidden.
