POP CULTURE: TV Movies

We are being treated, this week, to a TV movie about JFK junior and a TV movie (about Benedict Arnold) in which Kelsey Grammer plays George Washington. Egads. The idea of a movie about JKF Jr. . . . I mean, the guy was "intriguing" in the "People Magazine" sense when he was alive, mostly because people wanted to know what he might accomplish with his famous name, good looks, wealth, and ease in the limelight. While seems to have been a decent enough fellow despite being a Kennedy, the answer was always "wait 'til next year." Then he died, the job unfinished, the interesting parts of the story unwritten. Why put that on film?
