Would you tap this and ask to be saved?

But you are right about the moderate drinking. I think the problem was, he doesn't seem to be the kind of person that does "moderate".
I'm starting to rethink the TSA strokes. As I headed out the door on my way to the gym a couple hours ago, I heard an info babe say that Kennedy had his carotid arteries scraped out surgically a few days ago to remove a build-up of plaque. That is one of the most dangerous procedures they can perform and when all that plaque breaks loose there is no telling where it might lodge in the brain. And using TPA or any of the other anti-coagulants will prevent clotting and it becomes very easy to bleed-out w/in the brain. I hate to say it, but this could be MUCH more serious than a simple TSA.

As much as I disagree w/ him politically, I owe him big time for coming to my aid when I was a lobbyist on the Hill for many years. His AA was a close personal friend of mine (I was her graduate adviser when she got her MA) and she saw to it that Ted came to all of our receptions and pushed key authorization and appropriation bills. He really was a good guy and I liked him a lot personally. And hope I am wrong about his prognosis.

It was Big Brown by 10 easy lengths!!! WOW! That is a triple-crown animal if I've ever seen one. Unbelievable...

The owners bought him for $3.5M and he's worth $100M today!

But I was rooting for Kentucky Bear, of course...

More info is available now. Kennedy apparently suffered a seizure, and is expected to recover.

We call it the ol' DT's. I heard he was getting a facendectomy. The actual story is he was taken in for observation after:

A modest man is in the hospital for a series of tests. One of the last
tests has left his system upset. Upon making several false alarms to the
bathroom he decided the latest was yet another. He completely filled his bed
up with shit and was embarrassed beyond anything he could possibly
face. Losing his presence of mind, he jumped up, gathered up the bed
sheets, and threw them out the hospital window. Just then, Ted Kennedy was walking by the hospital when the sheets landed on him. He started yelling, swearing and swinging his arms which drew the attention of the security guard. The security guard asks,
“What’s going on?” To which the drunken Kennedy replied: “I just beat the shit out of a ghost.”

Ok, I'll bite, what issue and appropriations were you lobbying on the Hill that Kennedy agreed with and came to your rescue?
