FOR SENATOR KENNEDY'S
CURRENT HEALTH PROBLEMS
I would refer you to this post at the excellent Sweetness & Light blog for some illumination on what a good American Senator Edward Moore Kennedy is not!
UPDATE: We now know that Senator Edward Kennedy has brain cancer. And while I would wish nobody the kind of stress and pain that accompanies that diagnosis, particularly for the family, I cannot find it in my heart of hearts to wail for Senator Kennedy himself. I have a good friend whose husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor several months ago and the burden on the family is gigantic. So I will pray for Senator Kennedy's family as they shoulder this burden, but for Senator Kennedy himself, it's hard for me to muster a whole lot of sympathy, considering the lives he has damaged, ruined or just plain ended during his lifetime.
