I'm about to get in a cab...or on the subway (depending on traffic) and go downtown to Wall Street. We will originate the broadcast tonight from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, where they officially had the wildest trading session in history: a swing of over a thousand points up and down.
I wanted to alert our viewers (as Tom Brokaw will on Meet the Press on Sunday) to something we have coming up Monday night: newly-discovered audio tape, of an un-guarded JFK, just months before becoming President -- just over 3-years before his assasination. He talks candidly about his life, politics and his own health. The tapes will air for the first time anywhere on our broadcast Monday night. I've listened to all of it -- and it is chilling, haunting and fascinating at the same time. Having read just about every book extant on the Kennedy family and his presidency, I already know there is material here that will be in the next printing of various textbooks.
We'll hope to see you tonight. Have a good weekend (or try to) and we'll see you here Monday.
