Caroline Kennedy, the only living child of JFK and Jacqueline Kennedy, wrote the foreword to "Listening In: The Secret White House Recordings of John F. Kennedy. " The new book consists of a curated collection of taped conversations in the holdings of the JFK Presidential Library in Boston, the last of which was released this year.

Philip Randolph is making a pitch on civil rights and it turns out that 20 years before he made a similar one to Roosevelt, so I think it started with President Roosevelt.

Writers from around the Tribune Co. reveal their favorite baseball singing traditions. Feel free to share yours in the comment section. Kevin Baxter, Los Angeles Times I'm old-school, so my favorite singing tradition at baseball games is "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch. It reminds me of going to games when I was a kid and, more important, of singing it with my son when he was young. Just don't ask me to sing it now.

Several months after the idea was first bruited, the White House has announced that President Obama will nominate Caroline Kennedy as ambassador to Japan. The Times had this to say about the idea in an editorial in April: "If Caroline Kennedy were simply a lawyer and author, it's doubtful that she would be on any president's short list for a major diplomatic appointment. But Kennedy is also a member of a storied American political family and an early and valued supporter of Barack Obama's presidential ambitions.
