This isn’t a political blog, and with the exception of women’s and marriage rights I agree with Senator Kennedy on virtually nothing.
However, Senator Kennedy is a human being, and he has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. My own father died of complications from malignant astrocytoma, many years ago. Despite being but a child, I remember vividly the slow deterioration he underwent, particularly as his ability to communicate failed him.
I would not wish this on anyone, and therefore extend my regards to Senator Kennedy and family while hoping for full recovery.
