WHEN the leader of the free world opens his mouth, others will listen. After all, the president of the United States is the most powerful person on earth and his words can put things in motion. Even his doodles are worth checking out. Perhaps the first paving stone for the road towards peace in the Middle East is scribbled somehwhere on a piece of paper. So that’s why the secretary of president has the job to type out every doodle that is found on the desk in the Oval Office. Anyway, that was the case during the years that JFK was in charge. I found these doodles and typed out version in the archives of the JFK Library. The typed out pieces look like visual poetry. Massive!
