Rod, I think you're thinking of Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia.

James Byrd Jr. was the man from Jasper, Texas who was dragged to death from the back of a pickup truck.

DUH. Thanks! -RM

This obviously has enormous implications for for the US Senate (e.g., healthcare bill)! Our brother Duval is on the same page as the President. Nice to see two black men of power working together to advance progressive legislation. I pray the senior senator from West Virgina is on the mend.

It will be interesting to see if Duval (with Obama in the background) chooses someone who is quite liberal or someone who is more like Obama.

I can't help chuckling at chris c's praying above for Senator Byrd's recovery. This is a man who was in the KKK in his youth and filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964. (Yes, I know he has disavowed all of that.) Still, it is somehow a sad commentary on our age that a former KKK-er is now one of our better senators and was the voice in the Senate that spoke most forcefully against President Bush's invasion of Iraq.
