In Memory: Robert Byrd

Today is Tuesday, 29 June 2010.

He found within himself the decency to change.

(Unlike, say, the career white supremacist Ronald Reagan.)

He started out a Klansman, filibustered the Civil Rights Act, and became a proponent of civil rights.

He supported the Vietnam War, bitterly regreted it, and opposed the Conquest of Iraq.

When once asked under how many presidents he had served, he replied: “I have served with presidents, not under them.”

Yes, Virginia, there are three co-equal branches of government.

The Museum of the Bourgeois mourns the passing of Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV).

And all along, I thought I was a walrus.

Might you, Anonymous, be more specific? "Mess" does tend to cover the waterfront.
