Last week, we devoted out entire segment to comments in reaction to a listener who was very unhappy with a Day Sponsorship announcement that mentioned God. Most of the comments came down on the side of allowing such messages in the interest of free speech. 

Here is one final remark that came in last weekend, “I appreciate all the news that NPR brings and I think all the news includes all kinds of religious information, whether or not I agree with it.  Thank you for doing a great job.”

Where were you when you first learned about President Kennedy's assassination?  How did you hear about it? Did it effect you?  How do you view Kennedy's presidency half-a-century later? These are some of the questions we're asking in this week's show.
