I followed that link and discovered that Wikipedia has had a makeover. A pleasant surprise. The old design was a little too fussy for me.

(No particular interest in Icke, just curious about the relevant Wikipedia entry.)

Kennedy spoke in complete sentences.

I find the lack of oratorial skills in today's politicians deeply depressing.

Time was that aspiring politicians would hone their oratorial skills in school and college debating societies. I guess such societies still exist (?) but they're clearly not on modern roadmaps to success.

I caught an interesting paragraph in this morning's news. Many successful female CEOs deliberately lower the pitch of their voices to avoid what's perceived as 'stridency'. I'm still trying to digest that one. I might have to resort to sodium bicarbonate.

Taking derailment to the extreme - Wikipedia (can we trust it as a source?) confirms the urban legend about JFK's speech (good job I checked before my original post as I was almost about to repeat it).  I think there is a subtle difference in pronunciation in that the citizen Berliner is pronounced with a long i (Berleener) and the doughnut Berliner is pronounced with a short i. Apparently JFK also gave the academically agreed pronunciation for the latin he used earlier in the same speech.

So does Snopes:
