Caroline Kennedy Demands More Embarrassing Attention

What the hell is wrong with Caroline Kennedy? Didn’t she learn that she doesn’t really care for public scrutiny, one bit? Why did she want to be the ambassador to the Vatican?

There’s more, and it’s ugly.

Who is this mean-spirited "Pareene" to write such crap? Has Ms. Kennedy lost the right to even exist? Has she forever forfeited all right to any public life? I did not think she was qualified to become a senator from a standing start, but in no way, shape or form do I think that she is somehow unfit for any public role at all.

To the contrary, I think a woman with her good manners and ease with dealing with other high profile names would make a wonderful Ambassador.

And I think her star power would make the nation receiving her feel flattered.

As far as I’m concerned, Caroline Kennedy can be Ambassador representing my country any day.



In rugby, the looseheadprop is the player in the front row of the scrum, who has the ability to collapse the scrum, pretty much at will and without the referee knowing who did it.
While this can give the LHP's team a great tactical advantage, it also exposes scrum players from both teams to the dangers of catastrophic spinal cord injury.
Consequently, playing this position makes you understand your responsibility to put doing the right thing ahead of winning, and to think beyond your own wants and desires. It also makes you very law and order oriented.
