Pierre Salinger, 1925 San Francisco – 2004
To me it’s obvious that both Mr. Salinger and then Jack Valenti were what I call the “staircase #1 types,” stereotypes “made” by that King Casimir business, that “King Casimir the Great the III” of Krakow was the force behind the Ghent Altarpiece and was probably the original “Dr. Frankenstein,” creating “designer-humans,” “golem” or “orcs” to assist with the Don Quixote-style at best world-takeover war, of the superiorly-thinking brain-eaters. I think the #1s do distribution; are all around me here.
1966 – “With Kennedy,” account.
NYT July 10 2012, Ralph Blumental:
His daughter Jehanne, Mr. Salinger’s mother, became a journalist in Asia before settling in San Francisco in 1921, where she met and married Herbert Salinger, a divorced Jewish mining engineer who had founded a symphony orchestra in Salt Lake City.
… 1953 exposing barbaric conditions in the jails. When his investigative series on the Teamsters was scrapped because Collier’s magazine folded, he sought out Robert F. Kennedy at the Senate labor investigations subcommittee. He soon became the panel’s chief investigator and joined John F. Kennedy’s campaign for president.
… remains of a gift that Nikita Khrushchev presented Mr. Salinger during a visit to Moscow in 1962. The 150 cigars had come from Fidel Castro and violated the newly installed embargo. President Kennedy was aghast, directing Mr. Salinger to surrender the cigars so Customs could destroy them.
