Sorrow for Senator Kennedy
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.
