From both the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe comes this heart-warming story. It seems Ted Kennedy was out along the beach at the Kennedy Compound over the weekend when he spotted some fishermen stranded by rising tides on a breakwater. He first called 911, thene broke out his Boston Whaler (the irony here is delicious) and went out to rescue them. It turned out to be too treacherous for Senator Kennedy (D-Chivas), so he returned to the dock just as firefighters arrived, who used their own rescue boat to recover the fishermen.
I gotta give it to the bloated sot, though; he did give it a good try, and he did a hell of a lot more than a lot of others could — or would — have done.
Maybe we can transfer him from the Senate to the Coast Guard?
