Weird Celebrity

Isn’t it a lit­tle weird that so many years after the Kennedy era, CNN always has to refer to the new­ly-con­vict­ed mur­der­er Michael Skakel as “Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel” as if that’s the most impor­tant thing about the whole case? What about “teen killer Skakel” or “chub­by white guy Skakel” or “Mox­ley mur­der­er Skakel” instead, just for a change? I mean, he’s the nephew of a woman who mar­ried into the Kennedy fam­i­ly. That’s it. I’m not a fan of the Kennedys, but really—if some guy who worked for JFK’s pool ser­vice in 1962 is arrest­ed dur­ing a hold-up, I fig­ure we’ll hear about it on CNN. “Kennedy employ­ee” yad­da yad­da yadda.
