Your Turn: Platon's Goodbye to Ted Kennedy

Photo of Ted Kennedy on cover of TIME Magazine. Kennedy passed away this past week.

“When he buried his nephew, he echoed Yeats’ words that a man should “live to comb gray hair.”

It’s a peculiar image that seems to pull at many threads at once, including character, health, mortality, dynasty and American politics (and reminds me how much I love what we’re doing here, taking the time to look). Your thoughts?
