Blimey, the entire series could run just on the myths and legends surrounding the Kennedy dynasty in the US. Their run in Congress lasted for over a quarter of the existence of the nation. One of them married The Terminator.

Anything else particularly interesting?

They sort of inspired the name of an incredibly influential punk band.

Dead Kennedys formed in June 1978 in San Francisco, California, when East Bay Ray (Raymond Pepperell) advertised for bandmates in the newspaper The Recycler, after seeing a ska-punk show at Mabuhay Gardens in San Francisco.


However, despite popular belief, the name was not meant to insult the Kennedy family, but according to Biafra, "to bring attention to the end of the American Dream".

According to Gallup, just 13% of Americans believe the result of the Warren Commission, that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination of JFK.

81% of them believe it was a conspiracy of some sort. The full article's here:

Mind you, this is from March 2001.

To tie in a conspiracy theory of JFK.

Jeron Criswell King (August 18, 1907 October 4, 1982), born Jeron Criswell Konig, and known by his stage-name The Amazing Criswell (pron.: /ˈkrɪzwɛl/), was an American psychic known for wildly inaccurate predictions.

But what he did predict according to his autobiographer was the death of JFK.

In March of 1963 on the Jack Paar show, he predicted that President Kennedy would not run for re-election because something would happen to him in November of 1963. Fellow psychic Jeanne Dixon also predicted the JFK assassination. On New Years Eve 1965 he predicted Ronald Reagan would be the next Governor of California. In 1966 Reagan did win the election by defeating incumbent governor Edmund G. Brown. In his first book published in 1968, he predicted that one of the leaders of the Negro Civil Rights movement would be assassinated. Martin Luther King was shot April 4th, 1968. His biggest miss of course is that he predicted the world would end on August 18th, 1999.
