A Cheating Killer Dies

OK, that's probably pretty harsh. But its all true. Edward Kennedy came from a family of privilege and riches. So, what does he do with the gifts given to him? Why he gets kicked out of Harvard for cheating (1951) and he kills Mary Jo Kopechne (1968) In fact, and lets not forget this, he left her in the car to drown while he saved his own skin. And, he got away with it. So, yadda yadda yadda what a great man he was as Senator. But, he cheated in college and killed a gal in a car accident. It looks to me that the man was lacking in integrity. He's no hero from a family of non-heros.

Again...we are on the same page here. Henry Rollins had a really good commentary in Vanity Fair titled "Where's Mary Jo Kopechne's Eulogy?"

Here's the link
