"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Teddy Kennedy Joins Tookie Williams

Meet the latest children's author, Sen. Ted Kennedy, and his Portuguese Water Dog, Splash, his co-protagonist in "My Senator and Me: A Dogs-Eye View of Washington, D.C." Scholastic Inc. will release the book in May.
"I am very excited about the opportunity to create a book for young readers and their families that will deepen their understanding of how our American government works," Kennedy said in a statement Monday issued by Scholastic.
According to Scholastic, Kennedy's book "not only takes readers through a full day in the Senator's life, but also explains how a bill becomes a law." Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat, was inspired to write the book from his work with a Washington-based reading program, "Everybody Wins!"
Well we have a paradox or two here. While Kennedy was inspired by a reading program where "everybody wins", Kennedy represents losing for everybody. His socialist thinking and policies harm the people he professes to protect and his hate for anything conservative certainly taints the premise of a win-win situation.
Certainly Senator Kennedy's driving and guilty plea to "leaving the scene of an accident" was not a winning deal for Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick. Certainly the book does not cover drunken driving. While covering a day in the Senator's life we doubt he will cover frequent visits to the liquor cabinet.
Like Tookie Williams, who wrote childrens books while on death row at San Quentin, Senator Kennedy is now writing similar books while his career remains locked on death row.
