Let me be brave

Sunday 16 January 2005

My wife Susan has an op-ed in today's Washington Post: Let Me Be Brave, about the Special Olympics and the death of Rosemary Kennedy (which I wrote about here last weekend). Of course, she says it all better than I could...

Another great piece. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Beautiful peace by your wife in today's Post. On my blog we're also discussing Rosemary Kennedy. I also have some special insights based on my family's experience with mental retardation. I've been rather appalled at the shallow coverage and demonizing of Joe Kennedy for authorizing a lobotomy which at the time, in the press and among physicians, was perceived to hold great promise.

Feel free to join our discussion:
