Compliments of Rony - Kennedy Installment Six

Sunday Morning Loungewear for Pastor Rony...
Troy looked outside and said, "Your next Kennedy is walking up the drive."
Back in the 1960's, President Kennedy sponsored a program that sent machine oil, among other things, to Haiti. The Haitians tried to use the oil for other purposes, such as cooking, and concluded that the gift was of inferior quality. Ever since then, the president's name has been synonymous here with secondhand and/or shoddy goods. As you go through the marketplaces you see vendor after vendor selling both used and new clothing. Used clothing is much more affordable. If you buy a used t-shirt, it is usually something that came from the United States, it has been broken in for you. A Kennedy if you will.
