1. JFK ANNIVERSARY
Kennedy mixed idealism, pragmatism on energy and the environment
On Nov. 3, 1960, five days before he was elected president of the United States, John F. Kennedy stood on a Phoenix street corner and spoke about Arizona's vast natural resources -- both protecting them and harnessing them for economic good. Remarkably, his speech wasn't all that different from what presidential candidates are saying about energy and the environment half a century later.
