R.I.P Ted

Still trying to sort out my feelings on his death. Massachusetts has lost a staunch ally, and also a man with great personal demons.

 He cared about his people, though. However, I still don’t like one of his last acts was to repeal a law forbidding the Governor from naming a replacement. When the law was passed, we had a republican governor and Kerry was running for pres. Now that it’s a democratic governor, Kennedy wants it repealed. Of course, he’s the one who was pushing the initial change. Also, his big concern was we’d be without representation, but he’s been gone for most of illness.

 However, it is a sad day for the Commonwealth.

Nice Sled, Take 2

This is really a test of how Posterous handles posting to multiple accounts, but I couldn’t resist a little commentary.

 I work near South Station and pass a construction site each way to work. I saw this bike on the way to work but neglected to take a picture. When it was still there on the way home, I made sure to take one.
