I'm getting a few calls and emails. Why can't I be nice?
Hello? Who are you talking to?
As Barb commented in the earlier post "I don't agree with the Senator's politics, but I wouldn't wish a brain tumor (or any cancer) on anyone." I agreed. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
But that's about the extent of it for me. I'm not going to be crying like that senile old fool Senator Byrd. I'm not going to pretend I feel any sympathy for him. Sure I'm sorry Teddy, Patrick and Kara are going through this. He's there dad, no matter what.
But him? His suffering?
My only question - Does it hurt more than drowning?
Cause I know for damn sure it can't hurt more than having someone tell you that your 29 year old daughter has drowned in the back of a Senator's Delmont 88 and the Senator swam away to safety.
I am positive that it doesn't hurt more than watching that Senator walk out of a coroner's inquest, found guilty of nothing more than leaving the scene of the accident & receiving a suspended two-month jail term and one-year driving ban.
So, no, I didn't wish it on him, but I'd understand if Mr. or Mrs. Kopechne did. We'll never know. You see Senator Fatboy outlasted them. Gwen passed away last December, Joseph five years ago.
