Ok, I know some of you hate this gentleman with a passion, but what can I say, I still respect his position. And I just have to scream this one from the rooftops to the world.
This morning, I had the privilege to meet the Honorable Edward Moore Kennedy, Senior Senator from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He was in town to do a fundraiser for (from what I understand) the mayor of Fall River. He arrived by hellicopter, and we had to watch to pull him out if it crashed. It didn’t crash, so he came out and shook our hands and stood with us for some photos. Then it was off to the fundraiser. He was also a lot shorter than I imagined…I’d put him about 5’6" or so.
What can I say, anyone who can have the record this man has, and still be elected 6 times just has a certain aura around him. It made my day (I’ve been walking about 2’ off the ground all day).
I can think of no more stirring symbol of man’s humanity to man than a fire engine - Kurt Vonnegut
