JFK Library could lose RFK papers

There seems to be an unfortunate family feud going on.  Yes, the JFK Library could and should do more to highlight the contributions RFK made to JFK's presidency.  But, it is a small building.  New land and a new building will highlight Senator Edward Kennedy's career.  Maybe new land and another new building will be needed to adequately show RFK's life and accomplishments.  Nothing about this story does honor to any Kennedy.  Two wrongs don't make a right.  The RFK papers belong to the American people.  They should be open.  Copies of all of his papers should have been opened long ago.
