GUEST,Wesley S Obit: Sen. Edward M. 'Ted' Kennedy (1932-2009) (126* d) RE: Obit: Sen. Edward M. 'Ted' Kennedy (1932-2009) 26 Aug 09

Sharon - It's about 6 hours later and you're still hammering away at it? OK - It's very possible that Ted screwed up. He dropped the ball. He screwed the pooch. Made a mistake. Are you happy? He had decades in the Senate. From what I understand only two other people served longer than him. But you want to make this all about one of the lowest points in his life. If that makes you happy go ahead. But it's an odd way to behave in my opinion.

C'mon - Give it a try. Say something nice about the man.

God forbid you pass away sometime soon. Would it really make any sense for your obit thread here at the Mudcat to make a big deal about a low point in your life - something like your colitis? Would that sum up your life? Would you want us to remember you that way?

"Gee that Sharon was a wonderful person - but what about her colitis? That doesn't happen to everybody you know. I wonder how that happened?"

See how silly that sounds? It makes me wonder what's really eating you about Ted Kennedy. Is there something you've left out?

I wish you a long and happy life and hope it's a very long time before we ever see an Obit thread with your name on it. Best of luck to you. And that's my last word on the subject.
