Ted Kenendy's Memoir a Treasure...
True Compass, Ted Kennedy's final book (autobiography and memoir) is... in a word...
(Sorry... I couldn't limit it to just one word!)
If you read just one book this year, make sure it's TRUE COMPASS.
I saw his sons on Larry King Live tonight. They were terrific.
This coming Sunday I'll be across the street from the Puyallup Fair for 2-3 hours to hand out material about the Congressional health care reform bill. It's time! It was Ted Kennedy's lifelong goal to reform health care and make sure even "the least of these" (from the gospel of Matthew) has affordable full coverage (no pre-existing conditions clauses that eliminate people who need coverage) so that no American ever has to go bankrupt because they fall ill. He was a true Christian (not a perfect Christian -- there never has been a perfect Christian.) ( There has been only one perfect human being: Jesus! And He was -- still is, I reckon -- Jewish!)
Sad to learn of Patrick Swayze's passing today. His family is in my prayers, as is the Kennedy family.
