    does he have 50 broken needles in his body or some other freakish anomoly, it should not be a concern
    but i doubt it will be carried on the news channels like Reagan, cept maybe in Massive2sh1ts

    Doubt it. The Kennedy's regardless of what people think of them are the closest thing America has to royalty. The fact that the last truly visible member of the family has died would make it worthy enough for them cover everything from what he'll wear to the coffin to what food they'll give the guests at the wake.

    And his sister too. I don't know why I am surprised by this, but I am. He didn't go to his sister's funeral, which should have told me that it was just a matter of days.

    I thought exactly that when I heard he was too ill to attend.

    Has Mary Jo Kopechne issued a statement yet? I wouldn't want to miss that.

    Watch for an aggrieved Obama to return to Washington tomorrow and make a plea (which will be described by the press as "impassioned,") for Health Care reform, "for Ted."
    See, that's my big concern, it seems when you have certain fringe extremists in any political group, they tend to use(and I cannot choose any word more appropriately) the death of someone connected to the movement to further an agenda, I find that morbid, tasteless, and absolutely appalling, and hope this time a little class gets shown.

    I think because he's a Kennedy it will be heavy coverage, which is fine, I just would rather that this time we return to a more dignified coverage, I'm getting sick of the morbid nature of celebrity/politician news coverage and when the facts run out, the speculation and third party opinions start to clutter the whole thing, then there are the loons.....ugh, they are the worst of it all

    I tend to agree, and I think the news will go on an extended feeding frenzy.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Sucks for his family, though he lived a long and successful life.

    We don't believe in royalty, especially those who made it off of booze.
