Those of us at The Heritage Foundation who work just a few blocks from Sen. Ted Kennedy’s (D-Mass.) Capitol Hill office were shocked and saddened by the news of his brain tumor. Heritage’s president, Ed Feulner, yesterday wrote to Kennedy wishing him a speedy recovery.

The Honorable Edward M. Kennedy
United States Senator
317 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senator Kennedy:

It was with great sadness that we learned of your illness.

While you and I rarely see eye-to-eye on the issues, all of us at The Heritage Foundation have admired your articulate advocacy for the views that you hold. My colleagues join Linda and me in wishing you a speedy recovery.

Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.


Edwin J. Feulner, Ph.D.
