(Newser) – Sen. Ted Kennedy is "recuperating well" after yesterday's surgery on his brain tumor, the Boston Globe reports. The 76-year-old Democrat was "walking the hallways, spending time with family, and actively keeping up with the news of the day," his office said today, following yesterday's 3½-hour procedure at Duke University Medical Center.
