Edmund M. Reggie, whose decades-long association with the Kennedy family dates to 1956 when he delivered Louisiana’s delegates for a vice presidential bid by John F. Kennedy that fell short, died this morning in his Lafayette, La., home.
Mr. Reggie, who for many years also had a home on Nantucket, was 87. His health had been declining due to a variety of illnesses.
Not merely a vacationer in Massachusetts, Mr. Reggie helped broker a deal in 2004 to establish an independent, nonprofit organization to run the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
Duck Dynasty goes to Congress?
The stars of the popular television reality show Duck Dynasty have waded into political waters. The Robertson family has gone public in its support of 5th District Congressional candidate Vance McAllister.
Reviews are in for A&E's new series The Governor's Wife. The series follows former Governor Edwin Edwards and his wife Trina.
One Nola.com reviewer called it "train wreck TV," while the Huffington Post calls the show "a hoot." It also says "Trina is just this side of being a blonde bimbo; not totally dumb, but not the sharpest person in the room. Still she does appear to love Edwin, and he in turn appears to love her."
Meanwhile, Edwards' daughter Victoria told the Associated Press what she thinks of the show's chances: "It will be the same way people receive my daddy: 33 percent absolutely love him, 33 percent are in the middle and 33 percent think he's done something wrong and should either be dead or back in jail."
