A plague of Kennedys
Ready or not, a "tsunami" of young Kennedys is headed our way. Charlotte Rudge of Yahoo Shine informs us:
"Know what?" Robert Kennedy, Jr.said at a 2011 fundraiser. "There are 85 cousins in the fourth generation. About half of them say they're going to go into politics. So, I think that there's like a tsunami coming."
The website helpfully provides 9 examples of fourth-gen glamour, Kennedy-style, such as Connor and Kyra Kennedy, children of Robert Kennedy, Jr., and his ex-wife Mary, whose grisly bitter suicide revealed that callousness toward women seems to be heritable among the Kennedy men.
While tsunami, with its connotations of disaster, seems an apt choice, I would suggest an alternative word for a group of Kennedys. Collective nouns are intriguing and often funny, as in a murder of crows or a pride of lions. How about plague of Kennedys?
