  2. That was a very informative obituary - by all accounts he was a perceptive and principled man not bound by party doctrine. Current and upcoming politicians would do well to learn about his life and legacy.

    1. Yes, the obituary was exhaustive and informative, and maybe even slightly "protective" of his legacy.
