I just rewatched the Kennedys miniseries and I forgot how emotional the last episode made me. Seriously. I started bawling when Bobby got shot/Jackie was at their graves. Greg Kinnear (JFK), Katie Holmes (Jackie), and Barry Pepper (Bobby) did an outstanding job.

"Ethel had technical defects as a wife. She was a flog at cooking and sewing, detested cleaning and spent money carelessly … In fundamental ways she was a superb wife, at least in the old sense of being her husband’s helpmate.For Ethel Kennedy, reared as she was and believing as she did, ministering to her husband was not self-sacrifice or self-betrayal but self-fulfillment. It did not result in any manifest repression of an irrepressible personality … He never had to prove himself to her. Ethel gave him unquestioning confidence, unquenchable admiration, unstinted love." -Arthur Schlesinger Jr
"He [Bobby] was standing in front of an open fireplace,I walked in the door and turned and saw him, and I thought, ‘whoa’." -Ethel Kennedy

NY Daily News Newspaper 10/18/68 The shocked world learns for the first time that Jackie Kennedy will marry Ari Onassis. The date of the wedding is unknown, but could be as soon as next week.



200 followers! Thanks so much for sticking with me. I know I’ve been rather inactive lately and composed of mostly reblogs but I hope to start being able to put more work into the blog soon. I’ve been a little consumed by the sad/infuriating/interesting state of American politics. Haven’t forgotten the Kennedy fandom though!

Thanks again!

Oh man, the JFK Library is gorgeous in the summer. It’s right on the water and overlooks the Boston horizon. It’s one of my places to be.

Plus they’ve got a couple new exhibits so I have an excuse to make yet another trip there. :-)
