So much has already been written on the death of Ted Kennedy that anything I say would be redundant. Hardly two weeks after the death of his sister. I think (I am going on memory, here) that the generation of Bobby and John is down to one sister now. The Last Woman Standing.
I didn't want to turn my blog into the Baby Boomer Icon Death Watch Journal but it almost seems that it is turning into that. Of course, one day all of the baby boomers will be gone too, and who will write that obituary? Just think, just like when people wrote about the last survivor of the Titanic or the last soldier from the Civil War (that last one was in my lifetime), one day it will be the last Baby Boomer.
In the meantime you can read about "last war veterans" in this fascinating article.
