Citrus Comic Speechless by Collon28 Citrus Comic Speechless by Collon28
Although Senator "Ted" Kennedy didn't affect my life directly, I'm told many of the liberties and rights I now take for granted were because of his influence in the Senate. For me, knowing all of the good he did for the "little guy", and not knowing him personally, I'm at a loss for words. On one hand, I can't say, "good riddance to another politician" for he really was one of the "Good Guys" (assuming there are bad guys out there), but I can't say "It's a tragic loss, it's so horrible", because let's face it, he was pushing eighty years old; he had a good, long run. I mean, it's not like this wasn't THAT unexpected. All I can say is, "Thank you for all your selfless acts in this life. I'm sure you did all you wanted to accomplish in this life. Godspeed."

thought I heard something about a kennedy passing away. Well that clears up who and of course kudos on the comic this week.

Thanks. I know there's not much of a punchline; I was more interested in getting my feelings out.

He had his faults - in one particular case, that is a gross understatement - but overall, he embodied one of the best paths an aristocrat (even a nouveau-democratic-republic-brand of aristocrat) can take - of using his privilege to help those who didn't have privilege. Just because he got his didn't mean he couldn't try to help this who hadn't gotten it yet get theirs.

Although it's my script, true, but Razz commented on MJ's death as well so one might expect something from him for this as well.

And thank you for YOUR comment. :D
