Re: For Some Levity: Vote for the REAL Meaning of "Kennedy"

I think of Kennedy, I think of JFK and JFK Jr. Both died relatively young, at the peak of their careers, President and the young son being a big shot celebrity, who suddenly went down in a plane crash taking several people with him. Was Chris JFK Jr? Sure they had the Jackie Kennedy reference, but was that the reason for the title or the title gets you looking in the show for the reason for the title?
