Hey guys:

As you probably heard, U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy has died at his Hyannisport home. That means I, along with all the other reporters, will be working around the clock and so I may not be able to post for a few days. Check back often though, I might be able to squeeze a little something in now and then over the next few days, but with Pres. Obama vacationing on the Cape as well it’s the perfect storm of craziness as far as the media is concerned.

  1. Ted Kennedy was a great – though hardly perfect – man and a tremendous senator. His work and accomplishments on behalf of working and poor people will carry on for lifetimes. He could be a jerk, and I wouldn’t want him babysitting my teenage daughter if I had one. And I cringed whenever he tried to show he was a Boston sports fan. But as far as legislative accomplishments and being an effective Senator – he was without peer. A truly great American. And the phrase “end of an era” has never been more true than it is today.

  2. Only with much effort did I not burst into tears when I heard he passed last night. I’m gonna miss Teddy Bear and I imagine so is everyone else that works in the social service industry. As a professional I’ve lost the best legislative advocate we had. As a Cape Codder I’ve lost a neighbor and fellow ocean addict.

    And I feel suitably guilty for doing a little dance when they announced his funeral would not be on Cape, lol.

  3. I had to catch up on your blog because instead of being glued to the Internet, I actually watched TV a lot during the funeral service and tributes to Senator Kennedy. I did it for a lot of reasons, history being one of them. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone, but I was alive when his brother the President died. I was very, very young, but I remember the TV being on constantly. I actually remember seeing the riderless horse and the flag draped coffin going down the street. As a reporter, I’m sure you went non-stop during the rituals of burying Ted Kennedy. Can you imagine what it was like to be a reporter when President Kennedy died?
