    Hello.

    FYI. There's an engrossing article on President John F. Kennedy's pain & his treatments, medications & physicians in the NYT 11/17/02. Article is by Lawrence K. Altman & Todd S. Purdam, "In Kennedy File, A Portrait of Illness and Pain."

    After reviewing long unseen documentation, it is interesting that JFK is now being viewed by historians vis a vis President Franklin D. Roosevelt's disabilities.

    Unfortunately, Janet Travell, MD isn't portrayed very well in the cover-up of JFK's health, his meds & the pain level in The White House.
