The paintings are amateurish, and the artist is appalling.

The rehabilitation begins

He's not innocent, he is just a killer who picked the wrong lawyer...

I'm calling "B.S." on the dog picture it can't have been painted by the same guy that did the other atrocities.

Or maybe its a painted-over photograph.

Well, I mean, the NYT DID run the secret art of Bush, so I don't see how this is a surprise. Art done by people who did something noteworthy is usually more interesting to audiences than art done by artists.

How unfortunate, for Ms Moxley, that skaekel isn't artful or talented enough to undo the horrific murder he committed. Were he not a kennedy only the murder and conviction would have been news and there would be no attempt by those in the media to rehabilitate the image of this despicable shit. Geez what a bunch of groveling twits.

This NY Times article says he received ineffective counsel and hints that he may have taken he fall for his brother.

Art therapy is commonplace, as is music therapy. It is inexpensive, and if it rehabilitates some convicts, generally speaking, it's a good thing.

Once upon a time, I remember some Kennedy family member saying that evryone in the family knew that Skakel had murdered Martha Moxley. It was discussed openly at family gatherings. Ted sending him off to Ireland was also discussed as was the local police losing the key evidence. Justice wasn't served--not because Skakel is in jail, but because he still draws breath.

The Wikipedia article on Shakel is fascinating.Mark Furhman of OJ trial fame played a key role, as does Kobe Bryant's cousin.

His inner artist, such as it is, imay not be all that came out.

He has a dog named Buckley. How did the Kennedys let that happen?

I'm with Jimmy on the dog picture. It's also the only one not laden with self pity.

I've long tired of the Kennedy circus showing often on the MSM.

Someone explain the Kennedy obsession that resides in the top right of the map.

When you have a good liberal arts education (as each writer at the New York Times has), you can extract deep meaning from absolutely fucking anything.

Reminds me of the character of Alfred Chamberlain in the Alan Arkin/Jules Feiffer movie "Little Murders." Alfred makes his living photographing and selling pictures of dog turds. The NYT is doing the same thing in publishing the work of human detritus like Michael Skakel. It must be a New York thing.
