Ladies and gentlemen: we are being much too understanding and lenient - dare I say liberal? - in commenting on the coverage of this latest Kennedyism. For starters, let us be grateful that no one drowned in this car wreck.
Second, let us take Rep. Kennedy at his word. He denies imbibing any alcohol before the incident. But the pharmaceutical cornucopia that may be available to him -- to smoke, snort or drop - is limited only by his imagination. Forget the breathalyzer. Let's get a real chemical workup.
