    As if eternity cares about legislative majorities and the minutia of universal suffrage democracy. At one point, Whittaker, who by then was half carrying a couple of young Kennedys, asked if the group should turn back. He argued brilliantly for the system as it was and still is.

Jackie Kennedy's conversation with historian Arthur Schlesinger — about life with JFK, her perspective on the former president, and her thoughts about his death — will become public this fall.

In his most philosophical extemporaneous comment, he ruminated aloud: ''There is always inequity in life. In contrast to the grandeur of JFK's grave, the effect is unadorned and a little lonely.
