You Know You're Getting Old When

you can refer to a 50 year old woman as

"young, politically inexperienced,
sweet, and idealistically naive"

From Wikipedia

Kennedy is an attorney, editor, and writer. She is one of the founders of the Profiles in Courage Award, given annually to a person who exemplifies the type of courage examined in her father's Pulitzer Prize-winning book of the same name. The award is generally given to elected officials who, acting in accord with their conscience, risk their careers by pursuing a larger vision of the national, state or local interest in opposition to popular opinion or powerful pressures from their constituents. In May 2002, she presented an unprecedented Profiles in Courage Award to representatives of the NYPD, the New York City Fire Department, and the military as representatives of all of the people who acted to save the lives of others during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.[3]

Kennedy is currently President of the Kennedy Library Foundation,[4] a director of both the Commission on Presidential Debates and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and Honorary Chairman of the American Ballet Theatre. She is also an adviser to the Harvard Institute of Politics, a living memorial to her father.

In addition, Kennedy has represented her family at the funeral services of former Presidents Ronald Reagan in 2004 and Gerald Ford in 2007, and at the funeral service of former First Lady Lady Bird Johnson in 2007.

Caroline Kennedy also represented her family at the dedication of the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park in Little Rock, Arkansas in November 2004.

Kennedy and Ellen Alderman have written two books together on civil liberties:

In Our Defense: The Bill of Rights In Action (1990) and

The Right to Privacy (1995)

Tempo has a new excuse to explain why no one can find Heartstorm Press. She says it's not on the Web because nothing from the 90s can be found on the web!

After Cat made that post about non existent ISBN numbers, I went to the Daltons Book Store and asked the manager to look up Heartstorm Press. He said if it existed, it would be in their data banks. It would just say that the press no longer printed or that the books in question were no longer in print. But what he got was a big nothing. It was as though Heartstorm Press never existed!

(c) 1996 must be before dBase was invented too!
