Good Bye Teddy

Edward M. Kennedy

Last of the brothers is gone.

You might not have agreed with his politics, but for those of us who grew up in the sixties, the Kennedy family is woven through our history -- John, Bobby, Teddy; Jackie, Caroline, John-John.

The family had its share of grief -- money doesn't buy everything. Teddy's shot at the presidency faded after Chappaquiddick, and rightly so, but he spent the rest of his life making up for it.

Adios, Ted.

Like his brothers, John and Robert, he was born to privelege but worked for the common man and championed causes that benefited him not at all. He didn't have to.

One of the last great Senators has passed. The nation is poorer.
