Fortunate Son?

By now, you've probably read or heard about the man claiming to be John F. Kennedy's long lost son. It's a tale so unimaginable that it could only be spun in Texas. Which, of course, is where it all starts.

Let me just say that this story has everything needed to inspire a major motion picture or a Shakespearean tragedy: the wealthy, handsome son; a tortured mother in mourning; dirty politics; Washington connections; no less than three former presidents; and my personal favorite, Sharon Bush. Seems the former sister-in-law of our current president and mother to model Lauren Bush cannot keep her name out of the news. Not that she's trying that hard.

Anyway, if you have a hankering for the juicy and sordid details of this saga, check out the Vanity Fair article at the link below. I promise you won't be disappointed.
