    This has nothing to do with bicycling. . . .

    but I just wanted to share with a really supportive group of people how sad I am at Ted Kennedy's passing. He is of the age where he could be my father and I think his death has re-triggered some of those feelings that I had when my own parents died. I mean, geez, he's been a fixture for ALL my life. The Kennedy's have been part of the fabric of my personal history. My earliest memory is of JFK's assassination. I count 1968 as the worst year of my life because of all the riots and the assassinations of RFK and Martin Luther King. It was a year full of sadness and uncertainty for me as an 11 year old rural Oklahoma girl. I don't mean to start a big political whoo-ha. The Kennedy's were undoubtedly flawed in many ways and I don't want to start a love/hate thing here. I just feel sad at the passing of part of my history, I guess and I wanted to share that.
