Jack Murtha Died

I hadn't really heard of Jack Murtha till he stood up against something about President Bush's policy in Iraq. Then he became something of a hero to the left.

Then in more recent years, he seemed like he was on the outs, because of something, I don't know what, some kind of shady deals or something.

He looked like a no nonsense kind of guy, that kind of craggy look that lets you know you're dealing with someone who knows his own mind and will do what he thinks best.

It's too bad he had to go and die on us. And only 77 years old, if I'm remembering right.
