The LuLac Edition #921, Aug. 26th, 2009

SNAPPLE "REAL FACT" #821, it takes an interaction of 72 muscles to produce human speech.





Congressman Paul E. Kanjorski (PA-11) provided the below statement on the passing away of Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA).
“Today marks the passing of a great legislator and an American patriot. Senator Kennedy has been a beacon in the halls of Congress through his dedication to the American people, his sincere patriotism, and his determined efforts in the Senate. “I feel particularly fortunate to have served in the Congress for half of Senator Kennedy’s distinguished career. During that time, I had the opportunity to interact with him on many occasions. In one instance during the Clinton Administration, I joined him at the White House with then Energy Secretary Bill Richardson and President Clinton to discuss developing technologies and a new future for America. While technology was the topic of the day, Senator Kennedy took me aside to get my thoughts on a trade bill he had recently introduced in the Senate. The consummate public servant, Senator Kennedy was always focused on many issues and capable of multitasking. His passions extended way beyond just one or two issues, but instead, he took up the cause for so many while managing to stay determined and dedicated to each and every one. It is for this reason that his imprint is on so many pieces of important legislation that passed during his time in the Senate. “While he left too soon, Senator Kennedy’s extraordinary legacy will surely live on. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family.”

The Kennedys have a lot to deal with right now. Like them or not, they have dealt with a lot over the years. Its been almost unimaginable and now a generation is dying off.
TED KENNEDY served and he served well for a long time. His leadership would be valuable today.

Our thoughts go out to the family.

Ted Kennedy was a force for good in this country. He was flawed like many of us. RIP.

He was flawed. Like many of us? How many women have you left to drown and die a slow suffocating death?
That is not a flaw, that is pathological behavior

Hey 608pm, one time the guy does something stupid. He panics. He lies, he's human. Interesting how we use this one albeit horrible event in his life and wipeout his entire record to the public good. We give drug dealers more of a pass than you're giving him.

I guess I would be more than willing to give the guy a break if his actions did not result in the death of another person. According to reports at the time, the state police had stated that if they had gotten to Mary Jo K within 25 minutes she may have lived.
I think he should be lauded for the good he has done, but I do not see what is wrong for holding up the wrong as well. That is how one is looked upon, by good and bad.
My sympathies do go out to his family.
