Did Jackie O. and Bobby Kennedy have an affair?

C David Heymann's Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story alleges Jackie and Bobby Kennedy began affair four months after John F Kennedy assassination | World news | guardian.co.uk
A row has erupted over a book by a bestselling biographer that alleges president John F Kennedy's widow, Jackie, began a four-year affair with her brother-in-law, Robert, within months of her husband's assassination. The book, Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story by C David Heymann, alleges that the relationship grew so intense that when Robert Kennedy was assassinated in 1968 it was Jackie, not his, wife who told doctors to turn off the life support. Heymann says the accounts are based on the recollections of a clutch of Kennedy confidants including Gore Vidal, Truman Capote, Pierre Salinger and Arthur Schlesinger. But Salinger, Kennedy's press secretary, has dismissed the account as "bullshit" while Heymann's critics say he has been caught making egregious errors in previous books and even accused of fabricating material.

Horribly Awkward First Sexual Encounter 'Worth The Wait' For Christian Newlyweds

Horribly Awkward First Sexual Encounter 'Worth The Wait' For Christian Newlyweds | The Onion - America's Finest News Source
"I'm so glad we waited until we got married—it made it so much more special," said the 26-year-old Linda, who is "pretty sure" John's penis penetrated her vaginal opening during the brief, fumbling lovemaking session. "I can't imagine what a letdown our first sexual experience would have been if we'd done it at some point during our five years of dating." John, 27, agreed. "As I prepared, sweat-drenched and terror-struck, to insert my semi-erect penis into my petrified new bride, I couldn't help but think what a precious, magical moment it was. Then, as Linda started to cry out from the anticipation of pain from the first-ever breaching of her tightly constricted vaginal walls, a tear of joy streamed down my cheek." According to the devout Lutherans, after retiring to their bridal suite at the Charleston Marriott East, Linda decided to initiate the evening of romance and dread by excusing herself to the bathroom, where she spent "approximately an hour" changing into the floor-length cotton nightgown she had purchased especially for the occasion.

The potemkin villages of rural China

Henan Fake Building Shows Village Is Developing | chinaSMACK
In Henan Province Luanchuan County Jiahe Town, this building is very conspicuous. Right next to a public road, it it looks like a small two-story building at a glance, with freshly painted white walls, but you wouldn’t know that this building is actually only about 1.5 meters deep, built to comply with the “new rural development” of building new houses by peasants/farmers who do not actually have the money to build “real buildings” so they can only do this. When the superiors/leadership come to inspect, they only look from their car, so how could they know that behind the resplendent wall are old and run-down adobe houses. In the town, all adobe or brick houses near the street must be painted white, even the outhouse/latrine must be made white, so that the entire county’s situation appears to be good.

Borders launches dating site for booklovers

Never build a relationship on books | Books | guardian.co.uk Seriously?
Not content with trying to flog us DVDs, coffee, fluffy toys, wrapping paper and greetings cards on top of the traditional books, Borders, it seems, is now intent on selling us happiness, too – with the launch of its very own dating service for bibliophiles. "Unlike other dating services," trumpeted the email bidding to woo me with an offer of joining up for just a quid, "Borders dating is a great place to meet fellow book-lovers." It continues: "In all the best fairytales, girl meets boy and frog turns into prince. If only real life was so simple! Sometimes fate needs a nudge in the right direction." On the face of it, if you're a singleton given to lonely walks on blasted heaths with a copy of a suitably impressive paperback poking eye-catchingly out of your jacket pocket, this might sound like just what you need. But to be honest, you'd be better off hanging out in the Sainsbury's vegetable aisle than on a dating website aimed at book-lovers: a shared appreciation of baby sweetcorn is a far more solid foundation for lasting love than a shared appreciation of Nabokov. In fact, that way madness lies. With bookish tweeness, Borders is calling its service "Happily Ever After" – which betrays a certain naivety about just how nasty book lovers can get when challenged by someone who professes to love a book more than they do. That's why book groups are festering middens of resentment and petty point-scoring. . . .
