Bobby Kennedy news articles

I keep seeing more and more articles talking about this being the 40th anniversary of the death of Bobby Kennedy. More and more people are sharing their memories.

RFK Article from the Huffington Post

This is a good post in response to Hilary Clinton's gaffe (something I think has been taken way out of context). One thing about this article, it says Bobby only entered the race after Johnson withdrew. Johnson withdrew on March 31st, Bobby announced on March 16th. I am seeing this mistake more and more. I had to register with the site to comment and won't be able to until tomorrow.

When I watched Bobby Kennedy die

I posted to the comments of that article about the error. I spent 15 minutes reading all the comments; there are some wonderful recollections of the night.

Article for May 20, 2008

Like all admirers of the Kennedy family, I'm very shocked and saddened to hear about Sen. Edward Kennedy being diagnosed with a brain tumour. I hope he can make it through this one...


There is only one news article for today. It describes a visit Bobby made to Monterey Park on May 19, 1968.

RFK in Vanity Fair

The newest issue of Vanity Fair features RFK on the cover and has an excerpt from the book The Last Campaign: Robert F. Kennedy and 82 Days That Inspired America, by Thurston Clarke, which will be published this month. You can read it on the Vanity Fair web site and see some wonderful pictures.

The photographs were taken from the upcoming book, A Time it Was: Bobby Kennedy in the Sixties, by Bill Eppridge which will also be published this month. You can see a slide show of 18 of Eppridge's photographs on the Vanity Fair web site also.

This looks like a very good excerpt and I can't wait to pick up a copy of the magazine.
