    We haven't had enough of a discussion about this in this country. When I hear it, it's coming mostly from us, those of us in the worker-bee levels of journalism.

    So I'll applaud anyone who tries to get the conversation going again, whether it's Robert Kennedy Jr. or someone across the aisle.

    Can anybody disagree with this quote?

    "We're the most entertained, least informed people in the world."

    I'd take our lack of informed people over the informed people of some of those African countries to start.

    I'd be more informed and definitely entertained if RFK Jr. would spill the beans about whether his dad and uncle gang-banged Marilyn Monroe.

    Seriously, though, he makes some good points.

    We live in a country that has laid untold riches at Keanu Reeves' feet for his ability to say "Whoa."

    Is a threesome considered a gang bang? Just wondering...I couldn't find it in the AP stylebook.

    I left out Peter Lawford and Frank Sinatra ... I just thought it was assumed.

    It's my understanding that RFK Jr., back in the day, had a unique plan to end Colombia's status as a major supplier of cocaine to the United States.

    He, his brother David and their cousin Chris Lawford were all set to visit Colombia and just inhale the whole damn country. Unfortunately, death and rehab got in the way and the plan eventually had to be aborted.

    Or so I read in the Weekly World News.
