Teddy Kennedy, 1932-2009

Woke up to a huge headline in my morning paper annoucing Kennedy’s death. Feels like the end of an era. Is there any other health news in Boston today?

Here are some links:

For four decades I have carried this cause—from the floor of the United States Senate to every part of this country. It has never been merely a question of policy; it goes to the heart of my belief in a just society. Now the issue has more meaning for me—and more urgency—than ever before. But it’s always been deeply personal, because the importance of health care has been a recurrent lesson throughout most of my 77 years.

From Richard Kirsch, Health Care for America Now

“Health Care for America Now joins the nation in mourning the passing of Senator Kennedy, for whom our mission – winning a guarantee of good health care for all – was his life’s work. We dedicate ourselves in the next few weeks to realizing the vision, passion, and hopes of this great American, firmly in the knowledge that enacting health care reform will rightly be seen as Ted Kennedy’s legacy.”
