Ted Kennedy, R.I.P.

Greetings from the wilderness, my friends.

Today is a sad one for American politics. Ted Kennedy has died. Not that you didn't know already.

I have not blogged in many months - for reasons of personal sanity, I suppose - but I have to let you know I'm still here, still observing, still filled to the brim with thoughts and feelings regarding the runaway train of American culture and politics. And that I have to share this sad moment with you, now that Senator Ted Kennedy has died.

In spite of his great wealth, power, and fame, Ted Kennedy was still and will remain in memory a foot soldier in the war to achieve the goals of the Founding Fathers, that we all may live to realize the pursuit of happiness, and that we obtain that elusive state known simply as "liberty."

Turn your TVs off, people. Go talk to someone about Ted, about America, and about each other. If we do that we'll be alright.

Thank you.
