Sorrow for Senator Kennedy

The latest news is that Senator Edward Kennedy has been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, the cause of the seizures he experienced over the past weekend. The report said that he is presently energetic and in good spirits, but doctors have so far issued a grim prognosis.

Kennedy is second-longest serving member of the Senate. No matter what one thinks of this man - and I acknowledge he has feet of clay like everyone else - he has been a bulwark against the forces of repression, and regression, that have been subverting the principles of this country for the past three or four decades. The only response I can make right now, and I ask all like-minded fellow-travelers to join me, is this: hold the light for Ted Kennedy, and prepare to pass the progressive torch.

Think about who you're voting for in the fall. New Mexicans: Tom Udall for Senate is my choice.

That is sad indeed. It will be the end of an era. Fortunately, a new crop of progressives is coming into their own, and Kennedy can see that.

Now if only I could even vote for a progressive. I live in DC, so I have no voting representation in Congress.

I too was saddened by the news...Being a cancer survivor myself, I felt deeply for him and his family (and of course, for all whom cancer has touched in one way or another).
