The sons of actors and presidents have been in the news a lot lately.
Take Mia Farrow’s 21-year-old son Ronan, who was all over the blogosphere today for his role as liaison between the office of star “Afpak” diplomat Richard Holbrooke and nongovernmental groups working in Pakistan.
Several NGO officials said they were taken aback when Holbrooke, the special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, introduced his protege at a meeting in Washington this week as a “special liaison” on Pakistan.
“It was a surprise but we don’t see this really as a big deal. He’s not the only point of contact for us,” said one NGO of Farrow’s appointment.
Ronan Farrow, whose father is famous director Woody Allen, has known Holbrooke for years apparently, and helped the veteran diplomat before.
