Scarborough on Kennedy’s kindness

September
3

Here’s a column from Joe Scarborough, the host of Morning Joe on MSNBC, in our sister Gannett newspaper, the Pensacola News Journal.

He writes about leaving Congress, where he represented Northwest Florida as a Republican, and soon being shunned by his party and his former colleagues.

All but one.

It’s a story about Ted Kennedy’s kindness and Scarborough’s graciousness.
