“High-grade glio-malignancies” such as Senator Kennedy has “are unfortunately the most common kind of brain tumor in this age group, and they have a poor prognosis for long-term survival,” he said.

Robert Byrd just burst out sobbing on the senate floor and had to call for an absence of a quorum to compose himself. Now he is railing against the war.
The only member of congress with more seniority in the Senate than Sen. Kennedy is Senator Robert Byrd.
I sent my best wishes to the Senator through his official Senate Site. You might want to do the same.
