Kennedy II, planning a run for governor, went before nearly 3,000 delegates at a state Democratic convention in Salem to apologize for highly publicized family problems affecting himself and his brother Michael. The Massachusetts Democrat has been dogged by questions about his decision to seek an annulment and about Michael Kennedy's alleged affair with a teenage baby sitter.

NBA center Jason Collins, who played for the Washington Wizards last season, has become the first male athlete still active in a major professional sport to come out as gay. Collins made his announcement to Sports Illustrated, which will feature Collins in this week's issue. "I didn't set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport," Collins tells SI . "But since I am, I'm happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn't the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, 'I'm different.' If I had my way, someone else would have already done this.

Sprawled out on the floor of a New England home, surrounded by yellowing photographs and a flag that once rode in the presidential motorcade, appraiser Dan Meader leafed through history. A folder labeled “Texas Trip” piqued his attention. He opened it and found documents dated the week John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas' Dealey Plaza in 1963. He scanned the notes taken by Kennedy special assistant David Powers. “Three shots,” he read, and then, “I carried my president onto the Air Force One in the casket.” He got goose bumps.

She raced to the hearse as it pulled up to Our Lady of Victory Church just after 10 a.m. Saturday and opened the vehicle's back door. For a moment, it was as if 29-year-old Rory Kennedy planned single-handedly to carry her brother Michael's heavy mahogany coffin into the gray and white church where, for years, the Kennedy family has worshiped in the happy days of summer. But just as swiftly, the youngest of Robert F.

Joseph P. Kennedy II made his political debut Wednesday, declaring he will run for the congressional seat once held by his Uncle John--who became President John F. Kennedy--so that he can "fight for the rights of ordinary people." The 33-year-old son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy became an instant front-runner in an already crowded field for the 8th District's Democratic primary next September. The seat is now held by House Speaker Thomas P. (Tip) O'Neill Jr.

Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II (D-Mass.) announced Friday that he is pulling out of politics. "There is no greater honor than serving in the Congress, standing up for what you believe," the 45-year-old, six-term congressman declared. "But it's time to reconsider my priorities." Citing a desire to spend more time with his wife and twin teenage sons, Kennedy ended, at least for now, a political career that once seemed full of promise, vacating a safe House seat once held by his uncle, the late John F.

Your review by Jonathan Kirsch of Robert Shogan's book, "Hard Bargain," on June 7 was disappointing and very disturbing. In the entire review there was only one item that was new. That item was entirely irrelevant and certainly malicious--that Roosevelt's voice did not change until he was in his teens. As for the so-called revisionist revelations there was nothing mentioned that was not clear in 1940. Because Roosevelt had to work with a reactionary Southern wing of his own party and isolationists of all stripes and varieties were moving heaven and earth to keep America neutral, Roosevelt was using every bit of political skill he had to keep England alive.

WASHINGTON - Democrat Joe Kennedy III won the House seat in central Massachusetts,  the newest member of the Kennedy clan headed to Washington after a hiatus without a family member in Congress for the first time in 60 years. The former county prosecutor, a graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Law School and the great-nephew of the former president, bested Sean Bielat, a Marine reservist and businessman who also earned graduate degrees at Harvard and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Major league pitcher Joe Kennedy was afflicted with a condition that caused his heart to suddenly stop beating at his in-laws' home in November, when he collapsed and later died. A final report on the 28-year-old player's death Nov. 23 has not been issued. But an autopsy found he had hypertensive heart disease, a condition that hardens the heart's walls and can cause it to stop beating, a medical examiner said.

Believe all of it at your own risk. But "Jackie, Ethel, Joan: Women of Camelot" is serviceable melodrama and a heckuva good cry. As was much of the history it tells. This NBC two-parter is drawn from J. Randy Taraborrelli's book of the same title, covering a 27-year period ending in 1980.

A prince from Camelot met some surfside sultans this week as Joseph P. Kennedy II, the eldest son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, arrived in Santa Monica to raise money for his Massachusetts congressional campaign. The Monday night fund-raiser drew several hundred people to Scratch restaurant and netted the smiling Kennedy more than $30,000. Several guests said they were attracted by the Kennedy mystique. Others said they support Kennedy's nonprofit work on behalf of the poor and elderly.
