ARISTOCRATS


 
Today in my neighborhood, Senator Ted Kennedy's memorial in the form of a U.S. Senate institute will be dedicated in the presence of both the President and Vice-President of the United States. Big deal, I guess, for some. Yet I am left with the question, "If the leaders of my government can attend a private memorial's dedication, why didn't they take the trouble to be present at the march against terrorism in Paris after the Charlie Hebdo massacre?" I speculate that dedicating mausoleums for political allies who are from aristocratic families outweighs advocating for freedom from religious terrorism against the masses.
