17. This is especially true for those of us who are IrishCatholicDemocrats

"of a certain age". (Even if the Catholic part has lapsed).

When John, Jr. was missing a local talk radio host spent most his show on it & someone called in to complain that there were other topics. I wish I had the exact working of the host's response but, it went something like this:

"You must be young and and you have to be an Irish Catholic of a certain age to understand this. When we were young, we wanted to be the Kennedys & if we couldn't be them, we wanted to marry one, and if we couldn't marry one we wanted to be their friend. And, yes, there are times they've disappointed us, but when something like this happens, we are still their friends. And we will always be their friends."
