We're in an era of the internet and 24 cable news, so we'd be able to find plenty of jagoffs who will proclaim how happy they are that it happened, but it doesn't change the fact that a ton of people love the man and a ton more people would be incredibly upset that we couldn't manage to keep the leader of our country safe.
No doubt, I'm just saying I don't think the depth and breadth of mourning would be close and it certainly wouldn't be the same type of sadness.

You're analysis is as poor as your mate choice.
So, I re-watched the episode, the scene at the awards show where they announced JFK's death was really good. The women were much better than the men there, other than Pete. I thought it was funny how Trudy called the assassination "shameful" then he called it "shameful" the next day. The insurance guy was funny as shit. "I hoped to communicate without saying anything," "IT NEVER WORKS!"
Peggy's interactions with the RE agent are pretty awesome. Also, Peggy's actress is really good at subtlety. Her reaction to her BF's saying he wants to live on the UWS was really good.
Betty is still fat. Also that her clothes don't work with black hair combined with her shallowness... has there ever been a less-sympathetic character? Also I hate seeing her in any scene.
Don is totally falling for his neighbor's wife. The "previously on" had her saying "I can't fall in love" he's most concerned with what's going on in DC, can't take his eyes off her... Also, to me, what's most sad about that relationship is how much Megan loves Don and the neighbor and how Dr. Rosen really/I] likes Don. Also, does anyone else think Stan is a supremely sad character? Not only living with his dad, but sewing his jacket, unable to cook clean or sew, getting chewed out by his dad, still a virgin...
