Mommy? When they throw the last shovel of dirt on that old reprobate will Rugrats come back on?
The typical Catholic funeral mass (aka The Mass of Christian Burial) is an hour. The Kennnedy mass was twice that, but most folks don't have their service clogged up with blowhard politicians looking for cheap face time.
Naturally, the media has run on and on and on and on and on filling up the airwaves with endless blather and "end of Camelot" crapola. I heard one spectator being interviewed and she actually said (in that horrible Boston accent that makes a normal person's ears bleed). "I came heah' because Senator Kennedy nevah' did anything for himself. He always worked so hahd to make things bettah' for the average person."
Yes-yes-yes...good old selfless Ted. I'm sure that on that fateful night back in July of '69 Mary Jo said to him as she was sucking for whatever air was left in her submerged metal death trap, "Ted...Ted...save yourself...you have so much to give to the average person. Health care for everybody...it must be done now...don't even stop to call for someone to rescue me...swim, Ted, swim...."
At least that's what I think she said. God...wake me when it's over.
