Staying up way too late as I too often do, I checked the tube, as I often do before I finally retire for the night, and learned that Senator Edward Kennedy has passed away. I can’t remember the last time I agreed with the man, if ever I did, and I’ve often thought that his time was passed and he should have retired. But for good or otherwise, one cannot pretend he didn’t have some kind of impact on the political climate in this country. He has served for a long time and as a rich dude, he didn’t have to. So I give him at least that much, that he did serve his country in a manner he felt he should. For that I say, may he rest in peace.
