It was the hottest ticket in town, an after-hours gathering of the glitterati at the San Diego Zoo. We walked down a darkened path, past the gorilla exhibit, flashing our hard-to-get credentials at a series of security checkpoints. Suddenly, straight ahead, was a grouping of one of the rarest, most regal, and--at this convention--most despised American breeds: Kennedys!

'My family is extremely close. And contrary to any general opinion on the matter, if there is one, my mother has never had an agenda for me or my sister. That's probably why we're all so close and have had a relatively normal life. Not being a Kennedy, she could recognize both the perils and the positive aspects.

After a week of nonstop television coverage, it is the magazine industry's turn to seize on the nation's ongoing mourning of John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

They came for a wedding, but soon, on Saturday, the atmosphere at the Kennedy compound here was much more like a wake. "How much more can a family take?" wondered Joan Greim, who for years has worked at the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum. As family and friends converged on Cape Cod for what was to be by Kennedy standards a small wedding--about 275 people--they were greeted with the somber news that the private plane carrying 38-year-old John F.

A month after the Star crashed the Democratic Party by uncovering presidential consultant Dick Morris' relationship with a call girl, the gossipy tabloid reported in its Oct. 1 issue out Monday: "JFK JR. DUMPS GALPAL CAROLYN: America's sexiest hunk gets cold feet on way to altar." People magazine had nothing. It was Sunday afternoon, the day after John F. Kennedy Jr. married Carolyn Bessette on a remote island off the Georgia coast, when the mag learned about the wedding that got away.

Kennedy Jr.'s plane was reported missing early Saturday morning. From just after 5 a.m. PDT, when the news first broke on NBC, television news called anchors in from vacation spots and sent their helicopters into the air over the ocean for virtually nonstop coverage of the search for Kennedy's plane.

The idea had been to start the weekend with a short glance at the British Open, but once the TV was turned on, on it stayed. On through the remotes from the beautiful Cape, with its lighthouses and summer "cottages" and picket fences. On through the sepia-toned Camelot photos and slo-mo footage of that beautiful wife, that beautiful face. On from coast to coast, in a nation that until now had seemed at last to be growing inured to the hourly triumphs and tragedies of the rich and the famous.

He is etched in America's memory as the little boy in the blue coat and the short pants who saluted the bronze coffin bearing his father, the president, as it passed by him that horrible November day in 1963, his third birthday.
