Ted Kennedy is Going Home

1211379343It’s all Edward Kennedy all over the place in today’s papers as the world has begun to realize that the prognosis isn’t very good for the senior senator from Massachusetts. The living legend is being released from Massachusetts General Hospital this morning, and will return home to Cape Cod as he waits for more test results.

Like everyone else, we’re trying to comprehend a political world without Ted Kennedy, but the man, himself, seems to be in good spirits.

“Teddy is leading us all, as usual, with his calm approach to getting the best information possible,” [wife Vicki Kennedy] wrote in an e-mail yesterday to friends.

“He’s also making me crazy (and making me laugh) by pushing to race in the Figawi this weekend,” she wrote, referring to the annual sailing race from Cape Cod to Nantucket.

We’ll have more updates as they become available.
