Ted Kennedy & "The Marina Belle"
Chloe is nearing four years old. Two weekends ago she ended up sitting on Ted Kennedy's knee, having a chat, at a Cape Cod marina. She sensed the deference afforded to the Senator and knew he was somehow important.
Later she asked her Dad, Bryan, my son in law who had perchance been able to assist the Kennedys with certain logistics, i.e. the Secret Service driver didn't have directions to get to the marina: she asked, "Daddy, is he Santa Claus?"
