Pardon My Mensch
Not feeling all that well yesterday, I was languishing on the sofa trying to work out what Frank Sinatra was doing on the X-Factor. After a while it became clear that I had been unconsciously channel surfing and had alighted on a documentary about the blue-eyed one and the mafia taking credit for the election of John F Kennedy as president. They didn’t have blanket reality TV back in the sixties so they needed other means of selecting people to run the country and produce Christmas No. 1s. The ever patriotic mafia stepped into the breach.
