No one would save or care about the license plates from George W. Bush or Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan’s limousine. Only the memory of JFK prompts Americans to save, to create, and to value such relics. That’s because….we want to remember him more than those other presidents., The memory of JFK is more precious and we save what is precious to us.
The memory of JFK is more precious because he was stolen from us and we want to right than wrong, at least spiritually, by bringing something of him back to reality, in objects that we can see and touch. People will buy JFK’s license plates at auction for the same reason that they don’t believe the official theory of his death. Because we want something that was lost to be found
