Very Sad News...

I have just heard the news about Ted Kennedy. A terrible prognosis. My thoughts and prayers are with Vicki and all the Kennedy family.

As far a I am concerned the poor had no greater champion in the United States Senate than Senator Kennedy. During the more than four decades I spent in the United States I considered Teddy to one of the select few I most admired.

This past weekend I finished moving into my new home in Dublin. One of the items I hung on the wall was a framed picture with Kennedy taken in 1980. I had worked with a group of friends in organizating a fundraiser for the Senator during his campaign for the Democratic Presidential nomination. A favorite picture.
