Mad props to the late Senator Kennedy

I'm going to step out of the norm for just a quick post. I don't like to have any political tones here, but I've got to say "thanks for your service" and a fond farewell to the late Senator Ted Kennedy.

As I watched the news coverage, what struck me was that Senator Kennedy reached out to many, but did so quite frequently through letters.*

Watch CBS Videos Online

*for those of you under 30: "letters" are longer, more thoughtful emails, but on paper, written with ink. Instead of pressing "send," one puts the paper-with-ink into a paper envelope and snail-mails it to the recipient.
