Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column: In Memoriam Senator Edward M. Kennedy: Joe`s Early Obituary

I agree with many things that Guzzardi writes about illegal immigration and its depredations on California.

However, what he`s written about Ted Kennedy is despicable.

Furthermore, he`s culled every stray junk accusation thrown by every reader of VDARE.COM and assembled it in one place. Spite is not argument. This is beneath you.

For me personally this is a loss because I can never read Guzzardi`s columns again without the bile of this piece rising in my mouth.

Joe Guzzardi answers: In various ways our readers expressed their opinions that Kennedy`s immigration advocacy has been harmful to the U.S. They also felt that Kennedy`s personal behavior has been, at many times, ignoble.

I`ve asked Roberts to simply tell me where our readers are wrong. Perhaps Roberts is one of the many Americans that I referred to who is willing to forgive Kennedy despite his numerous hurtful flaws.
