Twenty Percent of Massachusetts Stimulus Dollars Directed to Honor One Family
According to an AP article , Massachusetts is receiving 126 million stimulus dollars; of that amount more than 1 out of 5 of those dollars “is going to help preserve the legacy of the Kennedys.”
1) $5.8 million to plan and design the new Senator Edward M. Kennnedy (D-MA) Institute for the Senate plus, perhaps, an endowment for said institute. (Quietly insert your own free Senator Edward Kennedy Senatorial Institute joke here.)
2) $22 million for expanding the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.
3) $5 million for a downtown Boston park; a new gateway to Boston Harbor Island on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
A caller to Howie correctly pointed out that the honorable thing for the Kennedy family to do would be to decline these projects and suggest that the funds be directed to more urgent and practical projects.
