    Politics aside, a significant figure in our nation's history has passed.

    Clearly we must pass some sort of legislation to prevent this sort of tragedy from happening again. I propose a death control bill.

    Seriously though... sad :(

    During WWII, Daniel Inouye single handedly charged a German bunker. They shot off his right elbow with a rifle grenade. He pried the grenade from his dead right hand and threw it at the bunker, then charged in firing single-handed with his Thompson.

    You know why? Because he was fucking awesome.
