She's a character, she has opinions.

Edward M. Kennedy, 1932-2009

I find I have few words to mark this day and the words I have seem like hyperbole when they are not. For all my life, Ted Kennedy was my senator. For all my life. As I grew up he left behind the scandals of his past and settled in to the role of our Liberal Lion, a champion to those who needed one. He has always been here. For all my life. And now he is not.

Rest in peace, Senator. And thank you.
