Edward Kennedy 1932 – 2009

I won’t dwell on this sad story in all the papers and media today, except to say men like him don’t come along very often.

Sure he had faults, most men do, but his public service record speaks for itself. I admire all people like Ted regardless of party affiliation. He stuck by his beliefs, but was still flexible enough to work with the other party to get things done for the common good. In a recent poll GOP members of Congress voted Ted Kennedy one of the best senators to work with on legislation.

I was fortunate enough to actually hear Ted rise and speak in the Senate when I visited Washington, D.C. in 1972. He was most impressive even at that young age.
