This picture says to me, "I believe we should go to the moon--and we will beat the Soviets there with our gigantic Christmas tree."

Jennifer, don't you remember? JFK was assassinated in November. We did send astronauts UP--I recall the entire HS listening to the radio during the (relatively brief) launches and returns--but the moon landing was 1969...and quite a few cents more on the olde postage stamps.

Oops...maybe you weren't born yet!
