John the Baptist, Michael Jackson, and Ted Kennedy

On the day they celebrate (celebrate?) John the Baptist’s execution, where his cut-off head was delivered to Salome by the stepfather she seduced with a dance; and on the day Michael Jackson, who apparently had a hard time sleeping, was born; Ted Kennedy lies surrounded by his family and nearly all the power of America, including George W. Bush with an alarmingly red nose.

It would certainly be comforting to be able to believe that all these people: John the Baptist, Michael Jackson, Ted Kennedy, and even Salome, are all now mingling, albeit somewhat uncomfortably, up there in heaven.
