The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Now this is gutsy

Who knew Ted Kennedy had a dog named Splash?

Okay, it's a Portuguese Water Dog, so it's not like he was striving for maximum irony here, but something still seems awry: imagine Bernhard Goetz operating a Subway® franchise.

Maybe Ol' Teddy was inspired by Tookie Williams' cautionary tale to children about avoiding gang life. If that's the case shouldn't this book be about the perils of accepting a ride in the vehicle of pompous, philandering, drunk U.S. Senators from New England? At any rate, you'd think, given Ted's checkered past, that his editor could come up with a dogs name not suggestive of something falling into a body of water.
