Ted Kennedy Follow-up

The New York Times is reporting a diagnosis for Ted Kennedy:

Tests indicated that Senator Edward M. Kennedy has a type of cancer known as a malignant glioma in the left parietal lobe, the upper left portion of his brain.
Senator Kennedy Has Malignant Brain Tumor

The treatment is a combination of radiation and chemotherapy; and according to the National Cancer Institute, the prognosis depends on the severity of the tumor, but is generally poor.

This is bad news for Kennedy and for America.
