Lee, you're a sap

Only positive comments are going to be posted? And I'm sure you're all for the fairness doctrine, as well. No biased media. Yeah, right.


My condolences for the family that loses their patriarch. Death is seldom easy, but enough already.


What is with you haters? Do you know for sure that Senator Kennedy hated Mormons or that Mormons hate Catholics? How can you possibly post things about a family whose tragedies have far exceeded the norm? If you can't say a kind word or offer condolences, why don't you just shut up and keep your opinion to yourself. This is about someone's son, father, uncle, grandfather, friend, passing away - it isn't about politics or religion. Yes, we all have our faults, and indeed, Senator Kennedy had his. But the Chappaquiddick incident was 40 years ago. Let it go and get a life. There again, all you know is what you read and that isn't always the truth. If you weren't there (or at any other incident that so many choose to post), then how do you know the truth? And what business is it of yours anyway? People should live their own lives and keep out of others. I'm sure the Senator has paid his dues with everything that has happened in his lifetime. May he rest in peace with his family which is really all that counts, not your stupid comments.


Remember yes. Fondly, no.

Orren Hatch

is an idiot and has many liberal tendencies. His relationship with this abortionist is further evidence of that.


Let the poor soul rest in piece. He is the one now who has to meet his Maker!

RE: Lost in Utah 10:15 am

What makes you think we are all Mormons? What makes you think we live in Utah? Look who is judging! Why are we consider to be hateful when expressing our own opinions? Have you heard of being a hypocrite?

We are only human. We have a tendency to judge when we shouldn't. I feel that some of the remarks made here are emotional as most of us have watched our country slowly be destroyed by those who have swore to uphold the constitution! Mr. Kennedy had become one of the most "socialist" Senators that we have ever had! He wanted complete control of the people, just look at his voting record, it doesn't lie! I can totally understand everyones frustrations & inability to show any sympathy at his passing, yet I understand that we must also try harder to be more Christ-like & show compassion. I didn't really like the man, but I am sympathetic to the situation.

An Albertan




Ed Klein, a former editor of Newsweek and the NY Times Magazine, went in for a live interview on the Diane Rehm show the other day and told an "amusing anecdote" about Senator Kennedy. It seems that one of the Senator's favorite topics of humor was Chappaquiddick, and that, not just content with telling his own jokes about the subject, he'd often ask others if they'd heard any good jokes about it they could relate to him. Apparently, after Mr. Klein realized that this wasn't nearly as cute and sweet a story as he thought it was, he started trying to backpedal, and the show cut right to commercial.

I'm sorry, but how horrible is that? You're involved in an accident that leaves a woman dead - whether you're at fault or not - and you like cracking jokes about it for the next 40 years? What kind of a person does that? And we're supposed to be fawning all over him just because he's dead? No, sorry.

No more guile

Notwithstanding all the good or bad that a person contributes to this world while in it, once his life has been completed and he is called home, the rest (all of eternity) is up to his creator to determine.

Regarding Chappaquiddick, only three people know the truth- Mary Jo, Ted, and the Savior. She will testify of the truth, Teddy will agree and Jesus, with his loving arms around both will render His judgement. The reward will be fitting for all involved and all will accept the adjudication.

As for us remaining, we should be glad that we still have the opportunity to do some good and to right some wrongs. Jacob Marley: "It is required of every man that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow men! If it goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death! It is doomed to wander through the world! Oh, woe is me! And witness what it cannot share but MIGHT HAVE SHARED on Earth and turned to happiness!"

So do the best you can and leave Ted and his family to their sorrows.


Just curious..... why bother making any comments. They are meaningless. Think of a story like this with absolutely NO blogging.
