I love to sail. So did Ted. Here he is at the helm of his 50' Schooner Mya just hours after being released from the hospital where he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor on May 23, 2008 . I think sailing is some of the most fun you can have with your pants on. I bet Ted did too.
The 80's could have been much different. The labor unions could have been strengthened, not busted, the walls between banking, securities and insurance would still be up, the government would still have been a respected force in American lives and not turned into the enemy, the Fairness Doctrine would still be in effect and Glenn Beck would have to give equal time to Ralph Nader, we would still have tariffs in place to protect American Manufacturing, people would still be making a living wage. And there would be a good chance that healthcare for all would be old news... but no, Chappaquiddick changed all that. Then Reagan took away the American dream. With a smile on his face. Poor old Gipper, he had no clue....
