It would be so nice if one could read someones mind as I wish i knew what John was thinking at this point.
Newborn John is unhappy about something. Food isn't getting to him fast enough. Note the article titled "Khrushchev's Pre Summit Spy Cry" on the coffee table. This is in reference to Francis Gary Powers U-2 flights over the USSR. The 5/16/60 Paris summit collapsed when Khrushchev demanded an apology from then US President Eisenhower. See this page for more details.
This was at bedtime but John had the beginnng of the chicken pox as the spots attest. I thought they were just spots from the film.
