Kennedy's Doodles

JFK doodles add interesting footnote to presidential archives

Dozens of pages of doodles and writings scribbled by former President John F. Kennedy are going on display at his library in Boston. A top library official says the notes don't offer any major revelations. But she says the collection "adds to this whole picture of him as a man, and as a president." They include doodles of a sailboat and one note that reads either "Report action in Texas" or "Request action in Texas." Below that, he wrote "John Connolly," then the Texas governor. The note was written less than two months before JFK was assassinated 41 years ago yesterday in Dallas.
