Edward Kennedy 1932 - 2009

"Born of privilege, and yet absorbed with the fate of those in need" -- The Nation.

"He was a Rabelaisian figure in the Senate and in life, instantly recognizable by his shock of white hair, his florid, oversize face, his booming Boston brogue" -- The New York Times.

> "Edward Kennedy 1932 - 1977"
