Is Naming a Bridge After a Kennedy a Good Idea?

Is it just me or do the words Kennedy and bridge conjure up images of Ted Kennedy going off one at Chappaquiddick? And honestly, don't we have enough landmarks named after JFK and RFK already?

Apparently not.
Several generations of Robert F. Kennedy's family have gathered for a ceremony renaming New York City's Triborough Bridge in honor of the slain senator and U.S. attorney general.

Kennedy's wife, Ethel, sons Joseph and Robert Jr., and daughter Kerry were joined Wednesday by dignitaries — including former President Bill Clinton — in a Queens park at the foot of the bridge.

Kennedy was assassinated in 1968 while campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Ironically enough, he was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan, who just happens to be back in the news, courtesy of Barack Obama's pal Bill Ayers.

Curious how nobody in the media has any interest in asking any Kennedys about that story.
