it was 44 years ago today

one of john kennedy's most famous lines [he had a few] was spoken 44 years ago in berlin, at a time of extreme east-west tensions during the cold war. i was a little 10 year-old then, yet i was sucking all this stuff up.
listen to the entire speech. where have the political orators gone? jfk was compelling, articulate, and motivating. it's been a while.
"ich bin ein berliner"
