Senator Ted Kennedy Dies At 77

leave a comment »

Senator Ted Kennedy lost his battle with cancer this morning:

Sen. Ted Kennedy died shortly before midnight Tuesday at his home in Hyannis Port, Mass., at age 77.

The man known as the “liberal lion of the Senate” had fought a more than year-long battle with brain cancer, and according to his son had lived longer with the disease than his doctors expected him to.

“We’ve lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever,” the Kennedy family said in a statement. “He loved this country and devoted his life to serving it.”

A sad day. He was definitely one of my favorite politicians in Washington. Rest in Peace, Teddy. You will be missed.
