"I think I had my maximum impact the way I had it. I couldn't have done more as a man, or in some position. You know I don't know what else I could have done. I was perfectly happy where I was. And I think I just had a wonderful relationship with my brother, and he was wonderful to this cause. I don't say that blindly."
-- Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who passed away today at the age of 88, commenting on her role as consultant to the President's Panel on Mental Retardation (found in Laurence Leamer's The Kennedy Women)
