vote at your own risk

Edward Kennedy, 1932-2009

From today's Boston Globe:
Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who carried aloft the torch of a Massachusetts dynasty and a liberal ideology to the citadel of Senate power, but whose personal and political failings may have prevented him from realizing the ultimate prize of the presidency, died at his home in Hyannis Port last night after a battle with brain cancer. He was 77.

He was "my Senator" for effectively my entire life.

Sailor, rest your oars.
