Ted Kennedy: Selflessness without Bounds

After entering bankruptcy, USAirways laid-off 16,000 people--23% of its workforce. Who will be the champion of the little people? Who will fight for their jobs? Who else, Ted Kennedy. O.K., so maybe he didn’t fight for all the workers. But he did fight for some. O.K. for two. O.K., for two particular women. The women worked in what is called "Executive Services," which cater to the airlines VIPs--including Ted Kennedy. The day after the women were laid off, Kennedy called the President of the USAir personally "not to save his perks, but to rescue the jobs of the two women employed there, according to Kennedy spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter." He intervened "because of their distinguished service to him and others." Not since Eddie Murphy gave a transvestite prosititute a ride home have I seen such a pure act of charity. I guess it just shows that there is no river too wide, and no bridge too far for Ted to traverse in defense of a woman in distress.
