Just a Baby

Just a bit mnore on the late Edward Kennedy ..

For a while back in the 1930s the initials E.K. appeared several times on a board at the Hyannis Yacht Club on Cape Cod. They indicated the champion sailor for that particular year in the 18-foot wooden sloop division. Edward "Ted" Kennedy, the senator from Massachusetts and the last of nine children of Joseph and Rose Kennedy, would boast from time to time that they stood for "Edward Kennedy." But if sister Eunice, 11 years his senior, was around, she would gleefully point out, "Teddy, you were only a baby at the time."

The E.K.'s indeed belonged to Eunice.
