Troubling News of Senator Ted Kennedy

Senator Edward KennedyCNN is just reporting that Senator Ted Kennedy has been taken to the hospital “with symptoms of a stroke”.

(CNN) — Sen. Edward Kennedy was rushed to a hospital in Massachusetts Saturday morning, a well-informed, prominent Democratic source in that state told CNN.

Kennedy was transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston after spending less than an hour in the Cape Cod Hospital emergency room, a spokesman for the Cape Cod facility told CNN.

David Reilly said Kennedy was admitted to the Cape Cod emergency room around 9 a.m. ET. Massachusetts General said it had no information on Kennedy.

The source said the 76-year-old senator had “symptoms of a stroke” at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis.

UPDATE as of 9:30PM EDT:

“(CNN) — Sen. Edward Kennedy was hospitalized in Boston, Massachusetts, after suffering an apparent seizure Saturday morning, his family said.

“Preliminary tests have determined that he has not suffered a stroke and is not in any immediate danger. He’s resting comfortably, and watching the Red Sox game with his family,” said Dr. Larry Ronan, a physician at Massachusetts General Hospital.

“Over the next couple of days, Sen. Kennedy will undergo further evaluation to determine the cause of the seizure, and a course of treatment will be determined at that time,” said Ronan, who is Kennedy’s primary care physician.”

Wish We All Could Be California Girls!

Surfer Girl, by casch52 @ FlickerA peeak above our garters to the California Supreme Court, and one to CNN for sharing this with us!

WASHINGTON (CNN) — In a much-anticipated ruling issued Thursday, the California Supreme Court struck down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional.

Several gay and lesbian couples, along with the city of San Francisco and gay rights groups, sued to overturn state laws allowing only marriages between a man and a woman.

“There can be no doubt that extending the designation of marriage to same-sex couples, rather than denying it to all couples, is the equal protection remedy that is most consistent with our state’s general legislative policy and preference,” said the 120-page ruling.

It said that the state law’s language “limiting the designation of marriage to a ‘union between a man and a woman’ is unconstitutional, and that the remaining statutory language must be understood as making the designation of marriage available to both opposite-sex and same-sex couples.”

With the ruling, California becomes the second state to allow same-sex couples to legally wed. Massachusetts adopted the practice in 2004, and couples don’t need to be state residents to wed there.

Let’s go surfing now!

Deborah Jeane Palfrey Victim of Faith-Based Sex Legislation

CNN is reporting the apparent death of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so-called “D.C. Madam”. She apparently committed suicide at her mother’s home, having been convicted of numerous ‘crimes’ relating to her high-end prostitution business.

How sad that in the twenty-first century in America, people are still dying over laws based on repression by religion.
