Senator Edward M. Kennedy, 1932-2009

Boston Globe obituary, this morning:
He was the youngest child of a famous family, but his legacy derived from quiet subcommittee meetings, conference reports, and markup sessions. The result of his efforts meant hospital care for a grandmother, a federal loan for a working college student, or a better wage for a dishwasher.
May he rest in peace.
