Kennedy again…

So, this weekend in Boston (and all over cable television) has been dedicated to the memory of Senator Kennedy. This isn’t surprising given his high approval ratings (an old one I read reads at 73% approved of his job) and of course his last name.

But, despite all of the hero worship and the sneers from his fans, Conor Friedersdorf links to a great column by J.P. Freire which sums up pretty much how I feel about weighting Kennedy’s achievements and personal faults.
