Senator Ted Kennedy Taken to the Hospital

The mood of the inauguration celebration dimmed this afternoon, as Senator Ted Kennedy had a seizure during the inauguration luncheon, according to reports. The Senator, who is fighting a brain tumor, apparently remained conscious and able to communicate.

Sen. Robert Byrd, the oldest member of the Senate, had to leave too, apparently because he was so upset after witnessing Kennedy's convulsions. We hope they both recover soon.

Seizures are a side effect of the brain tumor. I heard today he's doing well.

:( I hope it was because of fatigue from inaugural events and not a worse sign.

I surely hope he gets better. I think the excitement of the day really got to him. But at least he got to stand behind Barack as he took his historical oath.

Ok Jazz, I let the first remark go, now so should you. That case has been investigated up one side and down the other for decades and if there had been any evidence of a crime, there were plenty of times that the political climate in this country would have tolerated a trial. The Republicans have always hated Kennedy and would have loved to destroy him. To say anyone has lived longer than he deserved is to risk becoming what you say you hate.

Frank y Ava :? Actually, I don't think Teddy should have lasted longer than Mary Jo. I think he had something to do with the fact that she is...well, dead, and because he was a Kennedy he got away with...possibly murder...or at least being too concerned with his clothes to save her. I think he has already lived longer than he deserved.

The Mary Jo incident was tragic but I don't think it's fair to say she should have lasted longer than Teddy. Man and Woman are equal.

Steph don't read this, but I don't think Ted Kennedy should have lasted longer than Mary Jo Kopechne...but I'm glad he at least tried to do something positive for health care reform. This layout is as fast as the old for me. I guess it makes a difference when you have DSL. The only thing I don't like is that it advertises when you joined rather than how much you have contributed such as gold, silver and diamond.

I hope Senator Kennedy can hold on long enough to see the health care reform he's worked so long and hard for become reality.
