Betsy Devos came to speak at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government after participating in a Koch brothers-sponsored conference on school choice at Harvard. Students from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Harvard College, Harvard Kennedy School, and Harvard Law School collaborated to send her a powerful message that they disagree with her policies. The academic dean of Harvard Kennedy School opened the event saying that anybody who was disruptive would be escorted out. Secret Service and security were expecting students to shout down Devos, and they were prepared to escort out students who did so. But when the protest was silent they were caught by surprise. Devos was able to make her full remarks and take questions afterwards while surrounded by a powerful visual protest by dozens of students inside who resist her policies. Students expressed deep concern around Devos' school choice agenda which enables corporate interests to profit off the backs of students, her dismantling of Title 9 protections for survivors of sexual assault, her racist education policies which continue to disproportionately under-fund and harm communities of color, and more. Outside the Kennedy School, hundreds more protesters chanted and demonstrated. The students showed a commitment to free speech by protesting in silence during Devos's talk, allowing her to give her full remarks. The secretary also engaged in a respectful Question and Answer session with students. After the event ended and Secretary Devos had left the stage some students chanted in celebration of their successful protest which enabled views from all sides to be respectfully expressed.

In Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years, David Talbot sheds a dramatic new light on the tumultuous inner life of the Kennedy presidency and its stunning aftermath.

The story of the most fabled political family in American history, told in a manner similar to The Godfather: a manipulative, egocentric father determined to live out his own ambitions through his sons, who in turn spent their lives dancing to his tune while at the same time trying to stand on their own. This is history through personality - the tangled relationships through which paint a picture of one of the most turbulent periods of the modern age. Viewers will be upstairs at the White House, not in the Cabinet Room. Through iconic events in history - the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the civil rights struggle, the mob connection - viewers will learn about the lesser known, yet critical personal stories.

BY CHARLIE MCKEAGUE (Music. Video of Kennedy assassination.) (YouTube) 47 years ago – President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while riding in a motorcade through Dallas. Authorities arrested Lee Harvey Oswald within hours – but he was killed just two days later – opening the door for conspiracy theorists. Now two of the secret service agents who were protecting Kennedy on that day talk to CNN in a rare interview. GERALD BLAINE: “We couldn’t help it. We felt like we failed. We all had the same mission, and it was a terrible feeling.” BRIAN TODD: “Blane gives a riveting new account of that period, in his just released book, The Kennedy Detail. … Clint Hill was the first secret service agent to get to Kennedy’s car in Dallas. He broke into a sprint after the initial shot was fired. He says if he could re-live that moment, and jump on the back two seconds earlier.” CLINT HILL: “Without question I would be taking a bullet for the president, and I would be taking a bullet for the president and I’d be dead.” In an hour-long documentary on the Discovery Channel, one historian looks at why some believe the Mafia was actually behind the assassination -- and it’s a connection to Bobby Kennedy that not many have explored in the past. “It is believed Mafia bosses find in the coup plan a way to stop their real enemy. Not Fidel Castro, but the U.S. Attorney General. Carlos Marcel very colorfully explained if you have a dog, and you cut off its tail, meaning Bobby Kennedy, the head of the dog will turn around and bite you. But if you cut off the head of the dog, the tail will quit wagging on its own. The Mafia developed their plan to kill JFK, and their first attempt was not in Dallas but it was actually planned for Chicago.” And The Atlantic critically examines five popular JFK myths – and lays out evidence to disprove them. The article goes on to say that – if 47 years later we are still talking about it, and uncovering new theories and evidence – the discussion should continue. “…it's a mainstream consensus that these theories have always been essentially the work of cranks, popularized by a national appetite for mystery and entertainment. But for all the crazy ideas out there, there remain sober and careful alternative views of the assassination.” But as almost 50 years have passed – for many it is history and not so much a memory. USA Today examined newspaper coverage of the anniversary of JFK’s death – finding many major organizations failed to include him anywhere on the front page. “Among them: The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, The Miami Herald, and the Los Angeles Times.” But the Dallas Morning News didn’t forget – it ran a lengthy feature – but concluded times are changing at the memorial site as many visitors are too young to remember. "...in the last five years, a majority of our visitors are not old enough to remember … Younger people who are used to greater security measures since 9/11 look at photographs of Kennedy riding in an open car and say, 'That was crazy. Why would he do that?'"
