    I am perhaps going to stray into dangerous waters here but
    who else thought it was ironic that the Kennedy's spent milions and millions of dollars finding JFK Jrs body in the ocean and then upon finding him, cremated him and then threw him back into the ocean.
    Perhaps it is my sick twisted humour at work.

    That is ironic.


    I find it ironic that Ted Kennedy's head always looked like he had a brain tumor. I wonder if it will get even bigger!

    The Kennedys did not spend a dime to find JFK Jr -- it was paid for by governmental entities -- like the Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, and (maybe?) some state or local authority in Massachusetts

    my dry sense of humor wants me to say the search was a professional courtesy...

    :redface: I thought the same thing until a friend pointed out that had they not retrieved his remains scavengers would have and sold them on e-Bay. Also it helps in the grieving process if you have a body or portion of a body to mourn.

    That's not funny, it's just rude. :mad:

    I don't get it and I normally love a dry wit. :confused:

    Unless you have lived through all the tragedies that the Kennedy's and this country has had to endure, I would back off on this topic.
    I respect everyone's right to an opinion, but I dare say this is just plain stupid and insensitive.

    If his remains were cremated and then the ashes were scattered over the the water, I see nothing wrong with it. That's the way I want to go...though now right now! :wink:
