Unintentionally Amusing Dept. Boston Globe Sunday Magazine piece on Ted Kennedy:

No kidding. The rest of the legendary family is dead. It’s called Natural Selection, and it isn’t kind to clans whose members don’t rise above a certain level of intelligence. Being (barely) the survivor of a family known for males operating with less than the average set of marbles is hardly a major achievement.
