Robert Byrd, Senate's longest serving member, is dead

Byrd died at 3 a.m. after a short hospitalization over the weekend. He was very much a man of his turbulent era and a man of West Virginia, able to dramatically influence and shape policy for more than half a century while bestowing billions on his beloved state.
