... about Ted Kennedy belongs to Mark Steyn:
We are enjoined not to speak ill of the dead. But, when an entire nation – or, at any rate, its "mainstream" media culture – declines to speak the truth about the dead, we are certainly entitled to speak ill of such false eulogists. In its coverage of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's passing, America's TV networks are creepily reminiscent of those plays Sam Shepard used to write about some dysfunctional inbred hardscrabble Appalachian household where there's a baby buried in the backyard but everyone agreed years ago never to mention it.You most definitely should read the whole thing. Steyn is by far one of the most articulate voices on the right, if not THE most articulate. And he speaks for me... mainly coz I take Mom's counsel seriously.
