This was the press release headline: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Kicked Off St. Thomas University School of Law's 2006 Distinguished Speaker Series.
No, that’s not what they meant. Kennedy wasn’t booted. In fact, Kennedy “kicked off” the series with a speech in which he noted that “We did not inherit the environment from our ancestors, we borrowed it from our children” and argued that “There is no civil right more basic that the right to a healthy environment.”
