In Memoriam Edward Moore Kennedy.
Tonight Ted Kennedy passed from our scene. How great a loss that is for us and for the world. He was a great legislator and a good human being. We are richer for his time among us and poorer now that he is gone. It is a shame he didn't live to see universal health care in the only western democracy that doesn't have such a thing. A fitting memorial for the Lion of the Senate would be to enact Universal Health Care in his name. Requiescat in pacem, Teddy.
