In Memoriam for Senator Edward Kennedy, Wheelie Catholic goes dark, as has the blog Day in Washington, where it reads:
Perhaps more than any other individual, Senator Kennedy’s commitment and dedication to the well-being of vulnerable populations has lead to the enactment of groundbreaking legislation. This has included the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title IX, the Family Medical Leave Act, and other laws that have changed the course of this nation and have exemplified him as the champion of the common man.
Out of respect and in honor of everything “Ted” has done for people with disabilities over his decades in the Senate, the Day in Washington blog will go dark. We have lost a great advocate; he will be missed.
