June 5, 2012

Well, I couldn't let June 5 go by without mentioning it is the 44th anniversary of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. It is still a painful memory for me and I can't keep thinking how much the world really needs someone like him today. Especially with the mess the US political environment is in; too much nastiness and not enough caring for their fellow citizens.

But, life goes on. RFK's grandson Joe Kennedy is running for Congress in Massachusetts and was just added to the ballot for the Democratic primary in September. He will carry on the work of his grandfather, his father and his great-uncles. He has already come out in favor of the Paycheck Fairness Act. Good luck, Joe!
