Kennedy's Seizure

en. Ted Kennedy was taken out of President Barack Obama's inaugural luncheon on a stretcher this afternoon after having a seizure. The long-serving senator from Massachusetts, 76, has brain cancer and was rushed to a nearby hospital, but hours later was reported to be alert, laughing, and answering questions. Sen. Robert Byrd, 91, who earlier was reported to have been removed in his wheelchair from the same Capitol Hill lunch after having trouble eating, now says he did leave the event early but that his health was not the reason.
