Robert F. Kennedy
Robert F. Kennedy

The New York Times reports that the Kennedy family is debating Robert F. Kennedy’s presence at the John F. Kennedy Library, which may not in perpetuity possess the former Attorney General’s papers without some careful maneuvering. Robert Kennedy’s son, Joseph Kennedy II, gets some juicy lines in–he’s quoted deriding family members’ attempts to appease Robert F. Kennedy’s descendents in a building devoted to John and Edward Kennedy: “They offered to put the name on a hallway.”

Robert F. Kennedy’s children are currently having their father’s newly opened papers analyzed by Sotheby’s, which the Times hastens to indicate is not a sign that they’ll be sold; it may be so that the papers can be charitably donated. While the Robert F. branch of the Kennedys pondered donating the papers to George Washington University in the last decade, may we suggest something in the state  Kennedy represented in Congress–New York?
