Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts, 1932-2009

Senator Edward M. Kennedy died on Tuesday night at the age of 77. Senator Kennedy was a member of one of the country’s most influential political families and one of the most effective senators in American history. The death of Senator Kennedy, who had been battling brain cancer, was announced Wednesday morning in a statement by the Kennedy family, which was already mourning the death of the Senator’s sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver just two weeks ago.

Ted Kennedy’s Senate Web Page today is emblazoned with the quote from his address to the Democratic National Convention in 1980, after his presidential campaign had come to an end:

For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.”

What number are they calling now? Number Three. But even worser things, OMFG unthinkable horrors can happen when you can’t afford Health Insurance. Arms fall off. And ever worser things wither away and drop off a body’s body. It’s just horrible. Yep.
