R.I.P. Ted Kennedy

You don't even have to be from Boston or be familiar with the sordid but legendary legacy of the Kennedy family, to think of the great vault of sound political work that his name evokes. Barack Obama called the 77 year old senator who died yesterday "a singular figure," and I consider it to be one of the least arguable statements in a while. I remember on TV when he was at Obama's inaugural having a seizure, but insisted that attention be directed away from him. What a remarkable life lived.

  1. I realized this a.m. that I have witnessed the burial of all three of the Kennedy brothers.
