Dedicated to the memory of my canine friend…

RIP Sen. Ted Kennedy (1932-2009)

There’s a lot one can say about Senator Kennedy’s contributions to America. I would like to do so, but given the time constraints I am faced with I can’t at present. Still, a quote of his highlighted by Media Matters is worth reflecting upon in his passing:

“Throughout our history, the press has been an indispensable check on government. The information produced by the press contributes to our policy debates, exposes wrongdoing, and in fundamental ways makes our democracy work. A government that acts in the sunshine is far less likely to behave in unlawful or tyrannical ways. A citizenry informed by a free and robust press is essential to our nation.” – Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, 10/4/2007

Clearly this applies to other countries as well, not just the US. Rest in peace, Kennedy.
