Check out this tidbit from the L.A. Times:
Publishing: Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) and children’s publisher Scholastic Corp. will issue an illustrated book about a typical day in his life as told by Splash, his Portuguese water dog. Kennedy’s proceeds from the 56-page book, due out in May, will go to charity.
Seriously? Senator Kennedy named his dog “Splash”?? Is “Splash” really the best name for Sen. Kennedy’s dog?
Why not, instead of “splash,” which is the sound that the car carrying Mary Jo Kopechne made when it hit the water, how about “Glub, glub” the sound it made as it sunk to the bottom of the river. Or how about “Crash” the sound the car made as it jumped the curb. Any other suggestions?
