Edward M. Kennedy, Dead at 77


While I have nothing but disdain for the Senator from Massachusetts, today is not the day for that. Teddy Kennedy is dead, and I’ll remember him for his commitment to family.

“Edward M. Kennedy — the husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle we loved so deeply – died late Tuesday night at home in Hyannis Port,” the statement said. “We’ve lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever.”

Those are genuine words, I’m sure. My thoughts go out to the Kennedy family as they work through their loss today.
