"Beam me up . . ."
On a historical note: Today marks what would have been the 98th birthday of the late President John F. Kennedy.
The year before his November 1963 assassination, he received what has become the most remembered presidential birthday greetings from the late actress and singer, Marilyn Monroe. She performed "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" at a NYC Democratic fundraiser at Madison Square Garden in 1962, 10 days before JFK's 45th birthday. After a LARGE birthday cake was presented to the President, he was quoted as saying: "I can now retire from politics after having had Happy Birthday sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way," alluding to Ms. Monroe's performance in a skintight dress and sultry voice.
Ironically, it was one of her last major public appearances before she died less than 3 months later in August 1962. (Monroe's iconic dress cost $12,000; it was sold in 1999 at a NY auction for over $1.26 million.)
