Senator Robert Byrd passed away last night at age 92. No matter what you may have thought about him personally, he was an icon in the U.S. Senate and he fought for the people of West Virginia.

While in the grocery store the other day, the cover of Time Magazine caught my eye, The feature article was about the bankrupt (or heading in that direction) state governments across the country. Just this past week, I read in The Washington Post that after receiving tens (or maybe it was hundred...
