And sitting at the hospital bedside of her brother-in-law, Jackie Kennedy was about to lose another. According to a new book, the widow of President John Kennedy had a steamy four-year affair with his brother Bobby. The relationship was so intense that when Bobby was gunned down during his presidential campaign, it was Jackie - and not his wife Ethel - who instructed doctors to turn off his life support machine. Ethel, mother to Bobby's 11 children, knew about his affair but chose to ignore it, according to the book, Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story, by C. David Heymann, who has written extensively about the Kennedy clan.
While I dislike intensely what [Heymann has] written, I can imagine the situation from his point of view. In his mind, he's a crafty guy who figured out a way to make a great living, while breaking, to my knowledge, no enforceable laws to do so.

As a researcher into a controversial subject — the assassinations of the sixties — people often ask me this question: How do you know which sources to believe and which to disbelieve? My answer is this: When you read an author for the first time, check every single fact you don't already know from elsewhere.
