Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Robert Byrd, Dead at 92

I've had plenty to say about Robert Byrd over the years, but now that it's come to this, I really will miss the little fellow.

Via Fox News:

Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, the longest-serving senator in American history, died Monday at the age of 92, a spokesman for the family said.

Byrd, a Democrat who served in the U.S. Senate since 1959, had been plagued by health problems in recent years and was confined to a wheelchair. He had skipped several votes in Congress in the past months.

Jesse Jacobs, a family spokesman, said Byrd died peacefully at about 3 a.m. at Inova Hospital in Fairfax, Va.

He was the oldest member of the 111th Congress.
