  • J. Strom Thurmond (1902-2003)

    quote:
    Former Republican Sen. J. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, the longest-serving member of the upper house of Congress, died Thursday at the age of 100. The colorful and sometimes controversial lawmaker, who held his first public office in the late 1920s, died at 9:45 p.m at a hospital in his hometown of Edgefield, South Carolina, where he had been living since retiring earlier this year, family members said.

        Well so much for recognizing the good he accomplished. I mean, never mind the fact that he was a strong advocate of the military, a progressive Governor of South Carolina, and was always there to serve his consitiuients. But noooo, because he was a segregationist half a century ago we must recognize his death as Just more proof that only the good die young.

        His funeral is going to be shown on C-Span 2 tonight at 8 PM. I reccomend you watch it. You'll find it quite enlightening.
