Long Time Passing

A moment of silence,

Edward Maximus is Dead.

The very Heavens do shake.

If there is a man alive who did a better job of Standing Up for Massachusetts, for the Republic and for all those who needed a fair shake, then I'd like to meet them...and soon.
You need not walk far to see the Late Senator's reach, every handicapped ramp, the doings of special olympians in the paper, the scholarship your niece received that got her sprung out of Beauty School he had a hand in all of it and more.
All I can say is, the man left this world a better place than the way he found it all those years ago in 1962. He has been our Senator for all but three months of my entire breathing life. At least he left on a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky in Boston, better times I know are coming, dunno exactly how but they are coming.

Oh and kudos to the Boston Globe, looks like they scooped that dishrag the New York Times, seems as if Morrissey Boulevard still has some long claws and sharp teeth.
Oh and it looks like Joanie Vennochi and Jeff Jacoby are all getting a resignation just not the resignation they so ardently wanted.
To quote Ray Bradbury, "What yuh gonna dooo nights Mistah Teece? Whatcha gonna doooo?"
