Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

Senator Edward M. Kennedy

August27

I waited a day for the dust to settle before I added my thoughts around Senator Edward Kennedy for the sake of posterity.

My favorite quote of his, ever gracious, and offered on the eve of his defeat during his first run for office of the president 1980 /1 remains:

“For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dream shall never die.”

For five decades, virtually every major piece of legislation to advance the civil rights, health and economic well being of the American people bore Senator Kennedy’s name, and resulted from his efforts. Perhaps from, only the legislative viewpoint, the blemish might come from his record around immigration. However, from a perspective of balanced effort, we must needs salute the man and thank him, most heartily, for his public services to this country.

His Biography (he wanted it referred to as his memoirs), which will be titled: “True Compass”, will be a must read for the next century.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
