Ted Kennedy memorial service on now

A quick programming alert for readers: Senator Ted Kennedy's memorial service is currently being broadcast live now on C-SPAN, MSNBC, and CNN from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, Massachusetts.

The program is as follows (courtesy of
  • Paul G. Kirk, Jr.
  • Father Gerry Creedon, S.J., Opening Prayer
  • “God Bless America,” Boston Community Chorus
  • Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy II
  • Senator Christopher J. Dodd
  • Nick Littlefield
  • Governor Deval L. Patrick
  • Senator John McCain
  • Video Tribute Directed by Ken Burns and Mark Herzog
  • Senator John F. Kerry
  • Senator Orrin G. Hatch
  • “The Impossible Dream” sung by Brian Stokes Mitchell, soloist
  • Mayor Thomas M. Menino
  • Senator John C. Culvfer
  • “Just A Closer Walk with Thee,” sung by Boston Community Chorus
  • Vice President Joseph R. Biden
  • Caroline Kennedy
Tune in to any of those channels to watch the service. There is also a live stream.

C-SPAN is probably the best bet because it has no commercials and doesn't interrupt its coverage with punditry or other unwanted commentary.

I just posted on Twitter, but had to say that it was nice to see people smiling and laughing and celebrating the life of Ted Kennedy, in stark contrast to the sadness and tragedy of the lives of two other promising Kennedy brothers, whose lives were cut short by assassins' bullets. While Jack, Bobby and Ted are no longer with us, as Ted once said: the cause endures and the dream will never die.
