Chickens coming home to roost?

I realize this post may not be in the best taste. If it offends anyone, I'm truly sorry, but the media is really biased. This is the rest of the story. Tell it like it is...

Today, Ted Kennedy suffered what is first described as stroke-like symptoms, later diagnosed as seizures. I truly wish him well, as I would anyone with a similar condition, although my political views are quite different.

The reason for this post is that all the news coverage is expounding on his virtues and those of his family. They are a family of elitists, believing the law does not apply to them. A bit of a reality check is in order:


Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Massachusetts), drove a car off a bridge on Massachusetts' Chappaquiddick Island in 1969 after a party. The accident killed aide Mary Jo Kopechne, and controversy over the incident effectively ended the Massachusetts senator's presidential aspirations.

His son Edward Jr. had his right leg amputated in 1973 because of cancer; his son Patrick, now a congressman, sought treatment for cocaine addiction as a teen-ager in 1986.

His nephew, William Kennedy Smith, was accused of rape in 1991 at the family estate in Palm Beach, Florida. He was acquitted.
