Kirk Appointed Interim Senator

Check out WBUR's coverage of the appointment of Paul Kirk as interim U.S. Senator to fill the seat of Ted Kennedy. John Kerry says Kirk "will hit the ground running," and has "a special kinship for Ted Kennedy's values."

Indeed, the Globe reports today that Kennedy named Kirk as the executor of his estate. And WBUR looks at the GOP's challenge to the legality of the appointment.
