It’s Good ta Be a Kennedy

For a family that claims to champion “equal rights for all,” the Kennedys sure do seek, and receive, a lot of privileges and considerations that the rest of us don’t get:

Edward M. Kennedy’s family will be given a rare opportunity to raise objections before the public disclosure of thousands of pages of the late Massachusetts senator’s exhaustive and secret FBI file, according to bureau officials and advisers to the family.

The accommodation, though uncommon, will help ensure that the release of material on Kennedy gathered by agents throughout much of his life will not violate the privacy rights of his surviving relatives, those involved in the process said.

Why don’t they also let the Kopechne family go through the file to see if they have any objections?
