When I was young and idealistic, I had high hopes for the Kennedy family. I was inspired by JFK's speeches and Jackie's grace. I was crushed when JFK was killed, and watching his funeral live on TV left an everlasting impression on me. Then, when Bobby was killed, that was another hard blow.
But the glorious promise of Camelot, and my empathy for the family's tragedies are not enough for me to ignore the shenanigans, personal ambitions and wrong use of power by the "clan".
It's really too bad. I wanted so much to believe in the Camelot dream but that's all it was--a dream, not reality.
Mes sentiments and experience, too, Reba!! Whatta blow that was!
