Do we really need another book out on JFK, Jr? Or any of the Kennedys, for that matter?
Jr's girlfriend of four years from Brown University days (that's before Darryl Hannah and wife Carolyn Bessette, for anyone keeping it straight), said she sent a note to his sister Caroline warning of the impending memoir and said 'she would've said something if she had a problem with it.' Really? Did the silence from the non-response not send a message? Maybe Caroline's mom, 'Jackie O,' said, like mine, if you didn't have anything nice to say, it's better to say nothing at all? What would she have done if the family had said no -- table the book? Something tells me not...I think it was a done deal. Frankly, I think JFK Jr would've been appalled.
It feels a bit like vultures picking at carrion. Enough, already.
Though I know that as long as somebody has something to tell, stories will continue to pop up and sell. This doomed family is American Royalty and the public can't get enough. I wonder if the mini-series just out is any good?
Anyone know where JFK Jr's flight instructor is? I'm surprised there hasn't been a tell-all book out from him, about how Jr wasn't quite equipped to handle navigating a plane, especially with a hurt foot.
We leave Wednesday at the crack of dawn to drive back to Santa Fe for Be's funeral. We are planning it--it's been difficult long distance. We'll be glad when it's all over. Not that we don't want to honor Be, just that it's been a long slog...
