Eunice Hopes to Buck the Trend of Dead Kennedys

Some Kennedys have fallen to fate. Others are battling tonight in Massachusetts to reverse the curse.

Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the 86-year-old sister of President John F. Kennedy, who founded the Special Olympics and championed the rights of the mentally retarded, has been hospitalized. Shriver was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital on Nov. 18 and was in fair condition Saturday.

Shriver is also the sister of Sen. Edward Kennedy and the mother-in-law of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who said in June that she was recovering from a series of strokes. Schwarzenegger said that the family had been told that Shriver would never talk again, but that she proved the doctors wrong.

You said "reverse the curse." Eunice Shriver is 86 years old. The Red Sox reversed an 86-year old curse. Coincidence?
