In Memoriam: Ted Kennedy

Last night Senator Edward M. (Ted) Kennedy passed away of complications related to a malignant tumor in his brain. He was 77 years old.

Kennedy had served in the US Senate since 1962. He was known for his strong liberal convictions, but also for his willingness to make partnerships with his conservative colleagues.

"Kennedy was passionate about his beliefs, a tireless worker for his causes, and he loved fighting the good fight."
