Lloyd Grove's Lowdown: Classmate Christiane Amanpour on JFK Jr.'s days at Brown University: "I was always stunned watching people humiliate themselves, whether they were young, whether they were old men and women. Not humiliate but almost belittle themselves around him - so eager were they to be friends. He fully understood what was going on. Everybody looked at him as the repository of his father and his family's greatness." Bobby Kennedy Jr.: "Celebrity, like wealth, is a currency. You can either spend it doing something that is self-indulgent - which I don't think in the long run is fulfilling.
