A Massachusetts town near the fabled Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port has approved a $300,000 statue to be erected showing the late President John F. Kennedy and his late son, John F. Kennedy Jr., standing arm in arm, reports the Associated Press. The pose will be completely imaginary, as the younger Kennedy will be shown as a grown man. (The President was slain in 1963, when young John was barely three.) The city council of Barnstable, Mass., has the approval of the Kennedy family -- that is, Sen. Edward Kennedy (brother of JFK Sr.) and Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg (sister of JFK Jr.) -- to move ahead with the tribute, which could appear as early as the fall of next year. In other news of the Kennedy family, JFK and Ted Kennedy's sister, Patricia Kennedy Lawford, 76, is battling cancer of the mouth and has suffered a slight stroke, reports New York's Daily News. "She's doing fine," her son Chris Lawford (by late actor Peter Lawford) told the paper.
