As you read, consider these questions: A. How does the President use “striking contrasts” in an almost “ping-pong” (yin/yang) effect in the early moments of the speech? B. What word or phrase does he use early in the speech that carries with it notions of sexism that would have been far more prevalent in his time than in our modern era? C. What is one of the events that he points to from all of human history that he uses in compressing all of human existence into a fifty-year compression of time so that we can better understand the rapid nature of advances that marked the beginning of his time in office? D. What now-famous phrase does he employ over 40 years ago that was echoed by the current President as a justification for a completely different dangerous undertaking? E. When he outlines the staggering cost of the space program, what reference to rather common items does he use to make his countrymen understand that the cost is one we are already expending on rather frivolous things? Note that you may be able to download the speech to listen to his presentation style as well. Each question is worth ten points. In your Reply, address any 3 of the 5 questions, and you will get an automatic 10 points on the ones you choose to omit.
