The "New" Kennedy "compound".


Hell is a complicated place. Don’t believe me, check out Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy” , or more specifically, the “Inferno”

So, being we have any number of political types who are nearing the end of their days on this little blue marble, I thought it only right, in the spirit of being “helpful – not hateful, to provide a “heads up on where they are most likely to reside in the hereafter.

That would be the Eighth Circle of Hell. Specifically, the fifth ring of same, would be where they are most likely to end up at.

Corrupt politicians (barrators) are immersed in a lake of boiling pitch, which represents the sticky fingers and dark secrets of their corrupt deals. They are guarded by devils called the Malebranche (“Evil Claws”). Their leader, Malacoda (“Evil Tail”), assigns a troop to escort Virgil and Dante to the next bridge. The troop hook and torment one of the sinners (identified by early commentators as Ciampolo), who names some Italian grafters and then tricks the Malebranche in order to escape back into the pitch. (Cantos XXI through XXIII)

And for those of inquiring minds, regarding very current events, there is this …

The new "junior senator" in hell.
