Condolences are in order to the family, and friends, and country of Senator Byrd, who died last night, having served in the US Senate and House of Representatives for a total of nearly sixty years, a quarter of the history of the
USA.  He had some repellent views in his early years, but for most of his term in the Senate he has been a powerful voice for tradition, and in many instances a force for much good.

And given his reputation for bringing home the bacon, his state will miss him too.

Yours, reflecting on the passing of one of the biggest figures in US history,
