During these Harvard days, Ted was more interested in football then politics.Last Year we sold a Harvard/Yale college program on ebay and this picture of Ted Kennedy was in it. The scan is still in my archives... so I'm sharing it.
I have a personal Senator Kennedy story....
Years ago I worked at the Snack Bar in the Hyannis Airport . One Sunday a familiar looking young man with strawberry-blond hair came up to my counter and asked for a newspaper. We had about 5 different newspapers in stock, so I asked which one he wanted. The kid called out right across the terminal to his Dad...."Hey Dad, what paper do you want?" I saw that his Dad was Ted Kennedy and he gave me eye contact .... Then he called back to his son Patrick --- loud and clear ........."Cape Cod". Even from across the room he was an amazing presence.
Yep that's it! I got eye contact!
I didn't say it was an exciting story did I?
(Although it was quite exciting for me.)
this is random but-
Recently, I wrote that my sister Marjorie died. What I didn't mention, was that Marjie underwent the same type of malignant brain tumor as the Senator.
