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.

To my way of thinking, the most inspiring thing thing about his life is that, after making a hash of it, he rose above that, and now is remembered primarily for his contributions.
