Texas Congressman Charlie Wilson Passes Away

Charlie Wilson passed away Wednesday in Lufkin, Texas at age 76.  A hard drinking, "womanizing" man, Charlie Wilson was an overall force for good in his life.  And if people had listened to the man a little more, we might not  be in the mess (it certainly wouldn't be this bad) we are now in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  A stiff drink wouldn't do these war yahoos a bit of bad from my view of things.

Read the New York Times synopsis of his life here.
