>A short tribute to Senator Kennedy

August 26, 2009

>Be sure to read my Western Tribune column about the Norfolk Southern informational meeting which follows this brief tribute to Senator Edward M. Kennedy. May he rest in peace. I particularly like the way the media has portrayed Barack Obama as the successor to the Kennedy role in politics.

I have read a lot of hateful comments while looking at videos and tributes about Senator Kennedy. Let it rest, hatemongers.

Did you begin voting when you turned 18? Thank Senator Kennedy. Do you participate in or enjoy women’s collegiate athletics? Thank Senator Kennedy. Glad Bork got “borked”? Thank Senator Kennedy. Senator Kennedy was a champion of gay rights, women’s rights and fairness all around. He will be missed, especially as we move toward health care reform.

Comments are welcome, but I will not allow hateful ones.
