On Other Congressmen

And, of course, RIP Sen. Thurmond. Whatever your take on his many flavors of politics, from anti-black and liberal economics to more pro-black than many of his fellow lawmakers and conservative economics, you have to agree he was quite a character.

My favorite story about him was that, whenever anyone in South Carolina died, he'd call their family and express condolences -- and the families say it came across as sincere, not as part of a campaign. That was one of his daily duties that he set up for himself. In some ways, he was a good man.

UPDATE: Patrick over at OxBlog has a characteristic eulogy for the Senator.
