I know one should not speak ill of the dead... But this is one of the men that pioneered the stripping of local and state sovereignty from the people in favor of the great nanny state by using highly questionable means. Mainly extortion. Using federal highway funds to force states to alter their drinking ages, and treat adult citizens of one age group differently from adults of another. 18 year olds could die in war but weren't responsible enough to drink? Sad and ironic coming from a man who felt he was still responsible and energetic to serve in the Senate at 89. Look at this man and learn. He is a microcosm for everything that has gone wrong in American politics.
