In memorium of Admiral Oldsmobile

August 30, 2009

Ted Kennedy was buried and honored today. Somewhere amongst all those well wishers was a card. This card came from the SEIU.

For those not in the know, that stands for the Service Employees International Union.

That card was posted online for people to write in comments to have added to the card. All they required was your name, an e-mail address, and your zip code. Since I know I’m already on a few lists, I figured my being on one more wasn’t going to hurt anything at all and added my comment.

“Rest in peace Mary Jo. Justice has finally been served.”

Some of the other comments are priceless.

“So many notable people have told stories about the life of Ted Kennedy. Sadly, Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment.”
“I guess a rich family and swimming lessons couldn’t get you out of this one huh Ted?”
“Chappaquiddick Ted sleeps with the fishes.”

Some of the others submitted were a bit… crass even for me.

But yes, this is truly an awesome thing.
