Godspeed, Mr. Kennedy
Camelot is no more. Its last shining Knight of the Round Table, Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts passed last night. If his lengthy political career stood for only one thing however, it was the passage of sweeping health care reform. Please do what you can to influence your legislators to keep that dream alive. Do it for Ted. In lieu of flowers, contact them and show support for passage of meaningful reform. Should it become reality, that will be Ted Kennedy’s epitaph.
On a more personal note, I only truly socialized with the good senator on one occasion some twenty-odd years ago. I will spare you the details at this time, but it did involve a Jameson drinking contest. I lost. Godspeed, Mr. Kennedy.
For obvious reasons there is no song parody to accompany this post. Instead, please watch the film clip below while thinking of Ted, Jack and Bobby’s happily ever after days of Camelot.
