Re "Friends rally to Kennedy's side," May 21
Over the years, I have not been a fan of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.). He represents a liberal point of view that is foreign to my personal values and beliefs. Nevertheless, even the most ardent critic of Kennedy should admire the courage he has demonstrated in overcoming the trials of his personal life and his commitment to his values in his Senate job.
This news that he has a malignant brain tumor is sad indeed, and I wish him and his family the best during this difficult time.
