Kennedy gave his inaugural speech on January 20, 1961. On this day, in front of many Americans, John F. Kennedy was administered the oath of office by Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren. In his speech, President Kennedy gave the citizens the responsibility to participate in public service and asked them to have an "ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country” mindset. He made his speech short, and easy to understand. He was straight-forward with his point, and warned his listeners of the hard times they would encounter.
According to “Richard Connells Biography”, it states “Connell eagerly enlisted in the U.S. army…” (1) where as in “The Most Dangerous Game” General Zaroff “went into army… since it was expected of a noblemen’s son” (9). Both were in an army but enlisted for different reasons, Connell enlisted to serve his country where as Zaroff enlisted for his family’s reputation. With this in mind, Connell “continued to write during his enlistment, editing the camp weekly newspaper, Gas Attack.” (Meet Richard Connell 20) and General Zaroff “commanded a division of cavalry…” (9). This shows how both men contributed within their own armies whether it was to keep the soldiers entertained or if they commanded a division; both soldiers did something good for their armies. Like Connell, who stayed a “forever devoted journalist” (Richard Connell’s Biography 1) and formed part of the camp’s weekly newspaper, General Zaroff also kept his own interest even when he was at war,”…my real interest was always the hunt” (9).
It seemed like sometimes the owner would try to put together a decent team, and other times it seemed like the team was a tax write-off. Perhaps the owner Bill Bidwill had the best intentions when he would hire a new coach every other season but to the fans it seemed like he was just pulling names out of a hat. When Bill Bidwell decided to hand the football operations over to his football savvy son in 2007, the franchise took a positive direction. Bill Bidwill’s son, Michael, has done a good job since taking over for his father. He really got it right when he promoted Steve Keim as the new GM and managed to steal former Coach of the year Bruce Arians away from Indianapolis.

Coach Boone and the former head coach Bill Yoast both go up to football camp with the new team.

You and I, him and her, have all experienced change within ourselves, as well as change among others. As 28th President Woodrow Wilson was running for his second term, the Democratic Party’s slogan was “He kept us out of war.” A month after he won the presidential race against Charles Hughes, a Congress encouraged by Wilson voted to engage in war against Germany.
