    [Ted] Stevens killed in crash near Dillingham

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Dave Dittman, a former aide and longtime family friend of former Sen. Ted Stevens, says Stevens was killed in a plane crash near Dillingham Monday night. Dittman says he received a call overnight Monday that said the former senator was dead. Nine people were on board, including former NASA Chief Sean O'Keefe. Five people were killed in the crash, but other identities were not known, nor are the conditions of the survivors.
    Stevens was a posterboy for the ideological war between the right and left in America. However, whether you supported him or not, nobody deserves to die like this.

    Senator Stevens - When I finally get to heaven, I hope to see you and Paul Wellstone both there, shaking hands, and maybe having a beer together. God bless.

    He's part of the same bureaucratically corrupt Washington establishment that Kennedy, Bird and Thurmond were from. Good riddance.

    He'll probably be best known for his bridge to nowhere... what a legacy.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Nobody will remember or care about the bridge to nowhere when we're still calling the internet "the tubes". That will without a doubt be his greatest legacy.

    I had to look that up actually - I wasn't aware of Steven's calling the internet a "series of tubes"...

    Ted kind of became a symbol of what went wrong with the Republican party.

    I'm sure he will be missed by his family, but he lived a long and distinguished life - may we all be so fortunate.
