Wow, he was up and about recently.
Wow, he was up and about recently.
I have to say that may God rest his soul.
I think there are two ways to look at TK and his life.
At the moment?
You have to respect his life and passing.
His sins we can discuss in the Dog House?
"The wages sin pays is death". The debt has been paid no matter our opinion of him. RIP, Mr. Kennedy.

I didn't realize he had been a Senator for over 45 years. I also forgot that he went for the Presidency in 1980. RIP, Sen. Kennedy.
I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!
Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
"That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

Thank you. I know he was too ill to attend his sister's funeral RIP Uncle Teddy. Hope you and your family are enjoying a happy family reunion.
Oh, I'm sorry to learn that Dominick Dunne has passed away too now. What a fabulous writer.
I'd just been thinking in the last couple of days, what with all the Ted Kennedy news, that I need to reread "A Season in Purgatory."
I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).
I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

I was very pleased to see that the family o.k.ed and took the time to stop by the front of the senate building to give the people that worked with him the chance to say good-bye.
What a great show of respect.
I do live in a pretty cool country.
There is no mistaking any of the Kennedy Boys for anyone else.
What a very long, sad, and stressful day for the entire family, but as always, they have handled it with grace and dignity.
Sad to say, they have had to do this way too many times.

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1The clock of life is wound but once and no man has the power
To know just when the hands will stop - on what day, or what hour.
Now is the only time you have, so live it with a will -
Don't wait until tomorrow - the hands may then be still.

We watched the whole thing today, it reminded me so much of when I spent the day glued to the t/v after John and Bobby's passings so many years ago. So much tragedy for one family.
It's way too bad that some of the history and folklore of the Kennedy's, the government and the Arlington Cemetery only gets told on days like today.
Is it me or was it a nice touch that the lightning in the background was a little punctuation to the ceremony?
Also, I think it was just that the ceremony ended in darkness. No TV shots of the family leaving, let them have a moment.

You saw the lightning too? A nice touch from the heavens.
I read a nice letter from HSUS on his passing.
