Lou Reed, RIP

A vicious man bites the dust

Edward Koch, onetime mayor of New York City, died today. Heart failure was the putative cause. So, we now know he had a heart, thus debunking rumors to the contrary.

Arlen Specter died this morning

Arlen Specter (R/D-PA) was a centrist senator during an age when the apex of America’s political culture moved sharply to the right.

He earned only dishonor for this ‘achievement.’
