Like Lt. Gov. Murray, Governor Patrick will be missing a big night honoring Senator Kennedy.
But Gov. Patrick will also be making the lengthy roundtrip tonight and then back tomorrow right before his own nationally televised convention speech tomorrow night. It’s an important moment for the governor, but he put the family and friends Pfc. Conlon first.
My last post awhile back was a criticism of the governor’s staff (over what I considered to be a poorly worded memo to supporters). But fair is fair. This is the action of what in Yiddish we call a mensch, an honorable person. As a representative of the people of Massachusetts, my thanks.
