Sad state of affairs at the bookstore

I was wandering through the local Barnes & Noble when I came upon this book and it frightened me. I’ve decided that it is one of the signs of the apocalypse and that I must prepare for the end of the world. What book could frighten me so much?
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Kennedys
(Excuse me as I curl up in a fetal position under my desk.)

“Programs!!! Getcher programs heah!!! Can’t tell a scandal from a tragedy without a program!!!”
Personally, I found the title The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Parenting both horrible and sadly ironic.

Not to mention necessary. There’s plenty of idiots running around out there without a clue as to how to raise a kid. Thank goodness that book’s around!

But regarding the OP, the newest cognizant generation can’t really relate to the scandals and tragedies of the Kennedy clan, except for the odd cousin or so in some kind of legal trouble. But the big Kennedys - your Jacks, Teddys, and Bobbys - had their heyday 40 years ago. Can’t blame them for not knowing much about them. :frowning:
