but here goes. Over at the the “Rott”, the good Emperor offers what might be considered an act of “Christian Charity” toward the family and other intimate friends of the late Senator Kennedy. In that he acknowledges they most certainly are going through some grief and emotional suffering at this time, and as such, his sympathy is with them in their time of morning.
Regardless of the man himself, his family surely had much greater understanding of him, and appreciation for him, then we in the general public would ever be privy to.
Let the living bury their dead. The conservative side of the house would be up in arms if Regan’s being laid to rest was denigrated (at the service). Or if on some future date, the same was done to President Bush. Even in the field of battle there has been many instances of both sides collecting their dead (and wounded) under flag of truce.
I have said my peace about Kennedy in the previous two posts. I care not a wit for the man, his trials and tribulations, his politics, or any policy he claims to have had a hand in (as far as giving him any credit). But I will be the first to come to his families defense should any individual or agency seek to disrupt his being laid to rest, out of respect for the family and their loss. Any one who does so is no better than Fred Phelps and his mentally impaired followers. That is all.
