Think Big

Think Big - JFK Selling Science

From a blog called Loyal Opposition:

"Lift your spirits out of the election doldrums. Follow this link to watch a video of JFK's speech promoting the space program (Rice University, Houston Texas, 9/12/1962). It's worth the detour.

The proper role of government in the economy is to do what the private sector will not, but will make us all better off if we do. Basic science research, for example. What are Democrats for? We're for that. Can we sell it? Yes we can. Follow the link and see."

I agree. It is worth the detour.

Who was Kennedy's speechwriter?

(You can fast-forward to about halfway through... The first half is introductions, invocations, etc.)
