Cara J. Suppa number of fcbk statuses about michael jackson's death: 49302050202104394092. number of fcbk statuses about ted kennedy's death (so far): 1. Uh huh...
It's so weird to me he dies so shortly after his sister Eunice Shriver. ah man. RIP, regardless. The Kennedys, a dwindling clan. behold.
I hate to say this, but until I watched CNN for like an hour this morning, I knew nothing about the man, really. except. um. certain things I don't want to repeat at this hour. He was in Erie a while ago campaigning for Obama, I didn't go see him though. Speaking of, Obama gave a nice speech about him not too long ago.
wonderful wapo article about him (you have to subscribe - it's free - to read it online); I'll admit it, it totally made me cry. he was one of those people I didn't know much about, but still liked regardless. testament to the infamous kennedy charm, I suppose. as I read the article, the thing that made me like him most was his willingness to admit that he's a flawed person.ReplyDelete
Very sad about his death. I'm like you, I never really knew anything about him until he got sick (and then I looked him up on wikipedia). Also kind of weird that his sister died so recently too.ReplyDelete
Hope his family is doing well...
This is so tragic. Ted Kennedy did so much with his political career, and like C-Raw said, he was able to admit his flaws. Rest in peace.ReplyDelete
He was a great politician. A bummer indeed.ReplyDelete
