I remember vividly hearing the news of John Kennedy being killed in a plane crash off of Martha's Vineyard - while attending Jamboree In The Hills. There was a pall across the mass of people when this was announced.
Such a gorgeous looking young man, his wife Carolyn Bessette and her sister Lauren were all killed in this tragic flight. I remember his marriage was fairly new, and I was not a big fan of hers at that time, as I had the impression she had a broomstick up her butt. Snobby and stand-offish, but nevertheless, she and the others were all way too young to be taken from this life.
John being part of the Camelot that his family represented, literally grew up before our eyes. From the time he saluted his father's funeral bier, through law school and his magazine "George" founding - he was in the news on a regular basis.
