The Case of the Missing Pillbox Hat


My friend Faye Fiore wrote a fascinating story about Jackie Kennedy's pink suit, which has been banned from public view for 100 years. It's in storage in a secret locker in Maryland. There's just one problem: No one knows what happened to the pillbox hat.

It's a wonderful, long story -- although somewhat hard to read amid all the ads. But it's worth it. Let me know what you think! HERE'S THE LINK.

A SIDE NOTE: So many talented writers have been cut from the LA Times. The fact that Faye is still there and doing her thing makes me so happy. When I first started at the paper, I used to clip all of Faye's stories and keep them in my writing inspiration file...

I've always been obsessed with the stories about the Kennedys. I don't know why but I think its one of the biggest cover ups ever. So they don't know what happened to the hat? How interesting! I'll totally read the article. I'm very interested!!

I'm going to save this as my "something to look forward to" after work today. : ) Pink, hat, missing hat, Jackie O, history, mystery... I think I have something to be excited about now on this dreary day.

Such lovely style they had at that time didn't they? The pill box hat is a very useful shape, there's any number of things it could have been used for! ;)

Why have so many writers been cut? Because of the changes in media? Can you tell us more about that on one of your posts? I find it all really facinating. It must be hard to see (and witness!)that all happening when you are involved in it like yourself.

What a story! It's easy to forget how traumatic that moment was for the first lady. Imagine cradling your dead husband's head in your lap.
