Conference showed that the values Reagan cherished still endure
Topic - John F. Kennedy, Jr.
A few weeks back, a Washington summer internship made the news. The 17-year-old son of Rob Lowe, "Brat Pack" darling and "The West Wing" star, was to begin working in the office of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican. Readers of Mr. Lowe's remarkable autobiography, "Stories I Only Tell My Friends," released this year, already had been introduced to the actor's son through the stories and pictures Mr. Lowe shares in the book.
It was the peculiar fate of John F. Kennedy Jr. to figure as a series of images firmly implanted in the consciousness of millions. Born to a president-elect, he duly celebrated his third birthday with the traditional ice cream and cake at the White House, but not before making the world draw in its collective breath earlier that day as they saw him salute the flag-draped casket of his assassinated father.
When John said he had a surprise for her (a vintage sports car, as it turned out) Jackie Kennedy Onassis prepared her own engagement ring for him to give to Christina.
