Eunice Kennedy Shriver (1921-2009)

By now, you've known that Mrs. Shriver, who passed away early Tuesday after a lengthy illness, founded the Special Olympics back in 1968, enabling disabled athletes to have their own global competition, and was actively involved with the program as late as last year. Unlike her brothers, Mrs. Shriver didn't attract the attention of the scandal-obsessed tabloid media, but you can bank on the fact that if there wasn't any real dirt on her before, some opportunistic parasite will try to invent some kind of salacious story to destroy her reputation, just because of the Kennedy name.
