RIP, Senator Edward Kennedy. I think [livejournal.com profile] mabfan said it best: someone will succeed him, but nobody can replace him.

I had forgotten that one of Ted Kennedy's legislative accomplishments was getting parity for mental illnesses in health insurance. I've been lucky enough to have at least some coverage when I needed it in my battles with depression, but I know many people weren't so fortunate.

The man was not perfect, heaven knows. But there are a lot of good things in our society right now that would likely not be there if it weren't for him.
