Wrong to attack Bulger for attending Cellucci’s funeral

MANY FAMILIES have a black sheep. Most suffer in private, but not William M. Bulger, who was a leading public official for many years. The dramatic contrast between the former Senate president and his brother, accused gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, has produced repetitive attention from the media.

Now comes Jeff Jacoby, objecting to William Bulger attending the funeral of former governor A. Paul Cellucci. That’s blaming him for his brother, and it’s unfair.
