I enjoyed her book about Edie Sedgwick and a recent book about Hollywood called "West of Eden."

How often do Octagenarians jump out of buildings? Totally serious question.

The building she jumped from was the former home of Gloria Vanderbilt and the location where her son Carter Vanderbilt Cooper also leaped to his death

Do you think somebody fired her out the 15th story window?

Isn’t Anderson Poofter a relative of Gloria Vanderbilt?

No, just curious about seniors and jumping deaths. I know they can/do commit suicide but by jumping just seemed to be odd. that’s all.

If she was giving out Hollyweird secrets, the dive off the building might not have been her idea.

And one hundred percent of those jumpers die after passing by a perfectly safe lower floor.

Many of these facts would surprise people.

According to Wikipedia, her father was Dr. Jules Stein, founder of the eye institute at UCLA that bears his name, and her daughter is the editor of The Nation.

Is there anyone left with any power, and anything to lose, that still needs to protect the Kennedy reputation?

Hell, I watched a documentary on PBS ( of all channels) that discussed openly JFK’s many affairs in the White House (they practically accused him of being a rapist), Jackie’s knowledge of them, the potential murder of Marilyn Monroe, JFK’s drug addiction, and the cheating in several elections, the biggest of which was Illinois in 1960.

Like the Soviet Union, or China, you can only start to talk openly about the crimes of leaders after many years have passed.

So Carter Vanderbilt Cooper was Anderson Coopers brother? I haven’t ever heard him talk about a brother who committed suicide, although I don’t pay much attention to him.

I’ve seen many derogatory statements about JFK and his brother. I have never been able to figure out why that family is held in such high regard, most of them have been nothing but screw ups.

She was 83 years old, and couldn’t get her hands on some pills to do it peacefully? I’m not buying it.
