Ted Kennedy

I'm not going to say much about it. I disagreed with most of his positions, but I agree with what Sebastian said about cancer:

it’s not a scourge I would wish on anyone. Even Ted Kennedy.


I, too, watched as my mother died of cancer. Brain cancer killed her just shy of her 49th birthday back in 1977. It's a bad way to go.

I must agree with you. Brain cancer took my father-in-law and grandmother-in-law, no to mention a high-school chum before his 18th birthday.

As to Sen. Kennedy -- my mother always taught me that if you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all.

*crickets* *cicadas*

P.S. -- that saintly mother of mine left us in 1977, too, just shy of her 46th birthday. Lupus.

1977 must have been a worse year than even I remember.

I blame Jimmy Carter.

You've got a point there!
