Ted Kennedy: The lion takes a rest



Ted Kennedy died yesterday and I must say that I am sad. No, he was not perfect, but he was consistent. Luckily for many he did not become president but was allowed to work in the Senate, paving the way for the Voting Rights Act, Immigration Act of 1965 and the Anti-Apartheid Act, which called for sanctions against South Africa, pressuring the country to end it's racist regime. He symbolized what a senator should be: a man who works hard for his constituents and the world community. Ted Kennedy was one in a million and his leadership in the Senate will be truly missed.
