More to history than an intern's tale

New revelations by a former intern in the John F. Kennedy White House make the cigar antics of Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton look tame.

Kennedy leaves unfinished legacy

That says something about the iconic standing of Senator Edward Kennedy, whose death at 77 from brain cancer ends a political dynasty.

Selling Camelot

At worst, it could be described as a high-class garage sale, at best a sell-off of national treasures. Whatever you call it, the auction of items from the households of former United States president John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is sure to attract the interest of collectors and historians worldwide.
