Sen. Robert Byrd, was 92-years-old at the time of his death this morning.  He entered the United States Senate in 1958, two years before I was born.  I am now 50 years old.  I have never known of the US Senate WITHOUT Mr. Bryd being a Member.

He was a tried and true Democrat from West Virginia.  He once was a Member of the KKK.  He was colorful.  Full of vim and vigor, and brought the pork back to the Black Hills of West Virginey.

Byrd was the longest-serving Congress member in history. 

His death will be talked about for months and years and generations to come.

Byrd was admitted to a Washington area hospital last week and his condition and died at 3 a.m. EST today.

Initially thought to be suffering from heat exhaustion and severe dehydration, Byrd was expected to remain in hospital for "not more than a few days," but his age and frail health got the best of him today.

West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin will now appoint his successor to serve the remainder of his 2 1/2 year term.

Here is a note to Gov. Manchin:  Do America a FAVOR, and APPOINT YOURSELF to SERVE in Senator's Byrd seat.  I know the early morning quarterbacking is beginning.

Gov. Joe Manchin is amazing, and compassionate and would be a great Senator.

Remember, you heard it here first. Stay tuned.
