I just heard it, and USA Today reports it. Senator Robert C. Byrd died today after a short illness. The Senator was serving his NINTH term.
I disagreed with Senator Byrd way more often than I agreed with him. He was a former Klansman and one of the undisputed kings of all pork in his years in the Senate. He used vulgar language on camera and I never, not once, thought he had the country’s best interests at heart.
But insulting the dead is for other places. So I thank Senator Byrd for his service and will be praying for him and those who love him.
