Ed is in class this morning and I am tuned in to CNN watching the funeral service of Teddy Kennedy. He once growled at Malina on the floor of the senate, and she said he did this to all the pages. Perhaps he saw these 30 navy-blue suited 15 year-olds scattered throughout the senate chamber as yet another barrier in the way of his work.
He often seemed all too human to me, making big messy mistakes, awful judgements in personal decision making at times, and yet he managed to foster so much good for so many.
He was good man. RIP, Senator.
