Default The curse of the Kennedy's lingers on

Sad news indeed the obvious curse is very real ... this just does not happen to normal people

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Divers and boats resumed on Saturday the search in the Chesapeake Bay for the bodies of the daughter and a grandson of former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Maryland police said.

The Kennedys' family history is marred by tragic events. Naval pilot Joseph P. Kennedy, the eldest brother of John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy, died at age 29 in a plane crash in August 1944 when flying off the coast of Normandy, France, while serving with the U.S. Navy in World War II.

John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was assassinated in Dallas in 1963 at age 46. Robert F. Kennedy was gunned down in Los Angeles in 1968. John F. Kennedy Jr. died in a plane crash with his wife, Carolyn Bessette, in 1999.

Another granddaughter of Robert Kennedy, Saoirse Kennedy Hill, 22, died Aug. 1 of an accidental drug overdose at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, adding to a history of tragedies for the famed family.

You have a little smiley face in reacting to this? What is wrong with you?

It's almost as if the family is cursed

It's like the Clinton ability to kill had to get cosmically balanced by the Kennedy ability to die. Well, except for Ted.

Such a terrible thing to happen. But a curse? Hardly, I believe winds were 20 plus miles an hour gusting close to forty in the Bay that day. I wonder if alcohol or drugs had anything to do with it. Because you have to be out of your ever lovin' mind to chase after a ball in a canoe with an 8 year old in that kind of weather.

I never thought of that as a smiley face, but as one that nods in agreement
