  •  Nevermind that Kennedy's courage is not at issue. (7+ / 0-)

    The award is not named after Kennedy in honor of his courage. It's named after Kennedy because courage was something he valued and honored in others -- thus "his" book (actually, most people accept that the bulk of the writing was done by his staffer, Ted Sorensen), Profiles in Courage.

    Y'wanna know something outrageous? The NHL's award for the league's top scorer during the regular season is the "Art Ross Trophy". But Art Ross was a defenseman!!!! HOW DARE THEY?!?!?!? Where did his bratty sons get the gumption to endow the trophy in his name? The nerve!!! I'll bet they were Liberals!!!

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
