Ted Kennedy: A Lion for Nuclear Disarmament

 |  NCR Today

Yesterday in this space I reported that in an interview I had with Ted Kennedy in 1981 he said that nuclear disarmament was the greatest challenge we faced as a nation, indeed, as a world family.

Not surprisingly, others are similarly reporting Kennedy's support for ridding the planet of these immoral weapons (Immoral, yes, because, by their very nature [size and contaminants], they cannot discriminate between combatants and noncombatants.)
