Teddy Bankrupted the state of Mass. He said the big dig would caost 2 billion dollars, and he would get the feds to pay for 95% of it.
Well his drunken math was incorrect and he could not deliver the money from Washington. We are now saddled with huge debt from the big dig and our great grandkids will still be paying for it.
I always here he did "great things" for us, but then when you ask what great things, all you hear is "Cheney is a jerk", or "it's George Bush's fault"

On topic - a Kennedy has the same right to live his own life and not live out the overbearing ambitions of patriarch Joe Sr. I am neither a lover nor hater of Kennedys, other than a hater of Joe Sr., for forcing his ambitions on three sons. I was so proud of Maria for talking about how each member of the family had to find his or her own way, or voice - she phrased it tactfully, but she meant she was free from the expectations of grandpa Joe Sr, and every other Kennedy should be, also. The Kennedy loving members of the public - whether in Mass or nationally - should really care for them by letting them escape from political expectations, if they don't want to do that life.
Your statement on hate for Mr. Kennedy is disappointing in conjunction with your other beliefs, hate is a very strong word and in this case the act of which you claim your hate for is not worthy of the meaning of the word. I don't agree with Mr. Kennedy's style of raising children or his example of married life or political life for that matter, but I don't hate him for it. If you want to be a person who brings hate into the world so be it, but it will always be an unacceptable form of thinking.

Isn't miniature golf fun.
Watch out for the 13th hole, you know the one where you've got to putt across a no guardrail bridge that's surronded by water hazards in order to get to the White House. Teddy and Mary Jo never made it.
The temps are not that bad here. Have the icicles melted off the Florida citrus crop yet?
You seem to know alot about miniature golf, Is that where you work?.

I believe you should always say something nice about people even the poster boy for term limits and 100% inheritance taxes. Here it is. He didn't kill anybody during the last 40 years of life. How many of you all can say that?
