I thought you were talking about great swimmers.

Wasn't Kennedy the hero that saved a drowning soldier off a PT boat?   Thinking of...

Apparently he was helping the nation while helping himself to the interns? lol lucky dog

      I did not know Kennedy's could swim. lol    I am sure his father had something to do with it as well as the ghost writer for Profiles in Courage. Kennedy had the idea for the book but someone else did all the research and writing.

            No kidding. But he would have been considered law enforcement so there would be an attorney client type privilege there so no disclosures (exists beyond death of both parties believe it or not).

              Oh really? and he had all the resources he needed. If politicians feared him, a lonely intern would have been scared to death to defy him.

                            He saved a fellow sailor, dragged him with his teeth through the water, so the story goes.

                            His brother Teddy on the other hand, didn't like to save drowning people that much.

                              I think so many people feel if they are not married by a certain age, they panic and "settle." So they win a lottery and want to trade up for a better house, a better car and a "better" spouse.  The "for richer" in richer or poorer does not apply.

                              I wonder how many are also getting married simply so they have someone else in which to help pay bills. Basically, to have a glorified roommate. I think there was a lottery story before where the couple divorced after winning because it's something they had been wanting to do, but now have the financial security to do so.

                               

                              Also, this thread reminded me of a winner that tried to hide her win from her husband and divorced him. He found out, via mail that got sent to him by mistake, and sued her. He was awarded all the winnings.
