Eunice Kennedy Shriver Turns 85
A Brush With A KennedyA few years back, while living in Washington DC, I had the opportunity to view an advance screening of Terminator II. The movie was screened at The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) Washington office. In all about ten of us watched the movie including JFK's sister, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who elected to sit directly behind me. I wished she had sat somewhere else because throughout the entire movie -- beginning to end -- she did nothing but talk and kick my chair. What a bitch. This was actually my second brush with a Kennedy.
My first brush with a Kennedy happened when I went to the big Washington DC ball and met the entire Shriver family including Eunice and her husband, Sgt. Shriver, Maria and her brothers, and Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger Shriver Kennedy. Finally, my third brush with a Kennedy occurred when I visited John-John's TriBeCa flat the day after he was killed. Obviously, I didn't meet him but nonetheless it was a brush with a Kennedy...once removed.
Given the size of the family I'll bet there are many people who have had a brush with a Kennedy Klan member. If you have one please submit it.
