It occurs to me, now that he's gone, that Teddy Kennedy may well be the Last Great Man. Certainly nobody from my generation can even pretend to have accomplished so much for so many by hard work, political know-how, human caring and other-directedness, as Ted Kennedy has accomplished with his huge volume of important legislation. We are now being led that much more exclusively by hyper-partisan, self-serving, intellectual and moral midgets.
So Caroline is the last (wo)man standing. My advice to her: Get thee to a nunnery.
