    It's five sentences long and sounds like it was written by a ten-year-old.

    Nobody ever claimed JFK was smart. He was a product of his Father - the true brains of the family.

    Here's the essay for all those rich kids:

    "My name is Francis G. Whiffenbottom IV. I assure you that I'm neither Catholic nor Jewish, Irish or Italian. Please send my acceptance letter to the estate my family summers on."

    Meh, I don't think there's any kind of intelligence issue there, probably was just bored to death with English writing class.... He was a very well spoken man, that's the only reason I say that....

    JFK wrote a few books on maritime and foreign policy while he was in the navy

    That's the least of his accomplishments. JFK was known for his wit and intelligence, regardless of what anyone here believes, there's proof of that from his interviews and debates you can pull up on YT.

    Hey Booey, thanks for this. Would you mind sharing your source? I trust you, but I'm thinking of showing it in my university application essay workshops. Wow times have changed. I like how they made you enclose a picture - I guess to make sure you were a white male, LOL.

    You sure about that? I read that his father commissioned ghost writers for all JFK's books.

    If some books are to be believed he was not a guy who could write books. And he didn't.

    Let's all hope Robin's intern doesn't stumble across this little gem or else we'll get a 45 minute, time killing Ted Kennedy impression from Gunky...
