Breslin On RFK For 'Bobby'
Jimmy Breslin on the assassination of Robert Kennedy in the Times today here. Say Brez:
You couldn't get the gun out of the hand of the shooter. Hands grabbed and yanked and twisted but could not get it. The gun waved and people jumped away from it and now Roosevelt Grier, the immense professional football lineman, grabbed the shooter and got this huge arm around his neck from behind, and somebody screamed, "Kill him!" and Roosevelt just stared. All he had to do was tighten the arm and the guy is gone. Somebody else screamed, "No, no! Keep him alive!"
Very great piece. You'll be down after reading that so let me give you something nicer from that same year: crummy cars, cheap guitars and the system you can't beat live in Detroit below.
