Gee, I guess if they mentioned he is also a key advisor to the Gubinor on environmental policy, that might affect attendance, huh?

The whole event sounds like one big mental prostate exam!

I'll take a pass on this one.

It's free because they couldn't get anyone to pay to listen to him.

Environment, health and democracy...pretty packing for "you will be assimilated - resistance is futile" The only thing he knows how to do is sue farmers out of business.

No, that was Michael, who met an unseemly demise by skiing into a tree.

RFK, Jr. is the shaky-voiced dweeb that sometimes appears on Hannity and Colmes. He's all for the environment, except when it comes to building wind farms off the coast of Hyannisport, where it would wreck the view.

shaky-voiced dweeb

Just what is up with that voice, anyhow?
One too many hits off the crack pipe?

The way Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has assumed command of the Water Keeper Alliance, you’d almost think he started the environmental movement on his own. But he actually stumbled into it as a result of a 1984 criminal conviction for heroin possession. A judge sentenced him to 800 hours of community service, which he satisfied with volunteer work for the Hudson River Foundation. After his 800 hours were used up, the organization (now operating as the Hudson River keepers) hired Kennedy as its “chief prosecuting attorney. (see the rest of this at activistcash.com)

The shaky voice seems to fit the pattern of drug abuse. What I want to know is how does an attorney survive a heroin possession felony without enjoying disbarment? The answer reminds me a great plaque I saw in a small store out west -

Rules of this Organization:

  1. The Boss is always right.
  2. When the boss is wrong, see rule number 1.

I guess there is a slight variation of this rule for Kennedy's but it functions in the same manner.

RFK Jr. Was last in Atlanta about a year ago - he took a lot of time to blast the bush Administration on the environment while sucking up the adoration of Atlanta's Democratic power elite. Never mind that Atlanta - entirely within control of the Democratic party had spent about 12 years dumping untreated sewerage into the Chattahoochee. Mayor Bill Campbell kicked the can down the road for 8 years while the Clinton administration looked the other way.
