Review of President Kennedy's legacy in Berlin

This piece compellingly illuminates the the significance of JFK's 1963 "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech, without exalting the former president unnecessarily. The speech excerpts, crowd sounds, copy and guests are all pieced together effectively and concisely. I could go for a whole series of short pieces like this on important political speeches. Very nice!
