Some children get ponies. Most don’t. But Kennedys do, and then they get timeless songs written about them and their splendor.

Neil Diamond…has finally revealed that President Kennedy???s daughter was the inspiration for his smash hit ???Sweet Caroline.???

???I???ve never discussed it with anybody before ??? intentionally,??? the 66-year-old singer-songwriter told The Associated Press on Monday during a break from recording. ???I thought maybe I would tell it to Caroline when I met her someday.???

???It was a picture of a little girl dressed to the nines in her riding gear, next to her pony,??? Neil Diamond recalled of seeing caroline Kennedy in a magazine. ???It was such an innocent, wonderful picture, I immediately felt there was a song in there.???

Oh, the joys bootlegging money affords!

I don’t understand why he never thanks us when we help with spelling and grammar? And yet he gives Ronnie a commie???. It’s with love. Just like that Hillary Duff song.

Call him on it - within 5 minutes, he’ll be able to point out that one time 6 months ago when he thanked someone for correcting him.

When I read this earlier, I knew there would be an entire nation singing “Sweet Caroline” all day. It’s one of those wormy songs that winds up replaying for hours and hours. Thank goodness for Muzak!
