Another Movie

We went out to see the movie” Chappaquiddick” .

You’ll notice the marquee lost the last four letters: I found that funny in a well-heeled town they couldn’t figure out how to fit the titles on the marquee.

I am 58 years old and grew up in a democratic city. People loved the Kennedys. They cried when John F.Kennedy was killed. When Robert Kennedy fell to an assassin’s bullet, people cried. Then Ted was left, and along came Chappaquiddick.

It was incredible to me to see this movie. Seriously, I saw everything that went into saving the career of the “Lion of the Senate,”

A woman died. The senator’s career and reputation meant more than the legacy of a poor working girl.

Politicians…..** shaking my head**…you can have them.
