Hey Nana F-A, also saw it on CNN this morning..
Despite some of Senator Kennedy's faults and serious missteps, I had alot of respect for him for always standing up for the dis-empowered in America throughout his 42 years in the US senate.

What I completely had no idea until this morning, was the venom and bitter feelings some British people felt towards him for his supposed support for the Irish Republican Army. I was shocked by the harsh comments posted on the BBC Have your say website.
