Ted Stevens dead: The good milking cow is praised after her death

Filed in Current affairs by on August 11, 2010 1 Comment

The death of former Alaska senator Ted Stevens is like an earthquake. He was one of the most visible figures in American politics. Who could believe that this man who survived one airplane crash died on another airplane crash? Destiny is just something that we as humans cannot control.

The 86 year old had a good life but not a perfect life: it was mixed with tragedies in his personal life and allegations of corruption that were later dropped. In tragedy, political opponents share the pain and a rain praise on the dead. As the Kikuyu of Kenya say, “The good milking cow is praised after her death.”
