How sick was Ted Kennedy?

He not only had brain cancer, but seems to have had a major malfunction of longstanding in that regard:
Ted Kennedy enjoyed sharing Chappaquiddick jokes with his close friends – including his biographer, Ed Klein.

Do you believe this?

Here's what Klein told National Public Radio last week in an interview with Katty Kay, filling in for host Diane Rehm: "He would ask people, 'Have you heard any new jokes about Chappaquiddick?'"

Klein said one of Kennedy's "favorite topics of humor was, indeed, Chappaquiddick."

I know. I know. You don't believe me. You think I'm making this up. So, please, don't take my word for it, listen to it for yourself.

What floors me most is that the guy speaking didn't think there was anything amiss about a guy enjoying jokes about the death of his lover and two of his own children.

It's one thing when one person doesn't have a cent's worth of class. It's altogether another when his buddy doesn't think anything is weird about it.

Yes, the speaker is a dolt.

We have to watch out for these people. *shiver*

Moving soon?

Nothing yet. There are a lot of houses here in Waseca that I just plain don't want (too small for a family of 7 generally, on a postage stamp sized lot), and a few that are way bigger and way more expensive than we need or want. Pray that we'd find a happy medium.
