Condolences from The Thinker
To one of the best Senators we've got right now, Illinois' own Dick Durbin. He's going to win an easy re-election Tuesday, but I'm sure that won't come close to making up for the loss of his daughter, Christine, at the age of 40 due to a congenital heart condition. I've seen Senator Durbin speak a couple of times, and written him a bunch, and his passion about issues that really matter is clearly evident in the things he does. I'm a new parent, and I can't imagine how hard that's got to be for him. I hope he and his family come through this and remember the best of the one they've lost.
