(NEWSER) – The 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination brings no shortage of essays, recollections, and theories. A small sampling:
- Most popular: Kennedy is, by far, the most popular president of the last 50 years, says a new CNN poll. He scored a 90% approval rating, followed by Reagan (78%) and Clinton (74%). Nixon brings up the rear at 31%, with George W. Bush (42%) the only other president under 50%.
- NFL played on: The LA Times looks back on NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle's decision to play on just two days after the assassination, one he later regretted.
- Memorials today: Events in Dealey Plaza and in Boston highlight some of today's planned remembrances, notes Politico.
