Henry Hyde, R.I.P.

Henry Hyde died today at age 83. He had heart bypass surgery last July, and never quite recovered.

He was a gentleman, and he will be missed. Condolences to his family, friends, and constituents.

That is sad. God bless him and his family.

National Review Online has several articles about Congressman Hyde, such as this one.

I remember Henry Hyde being introduced during the Clinton impeachment trial, during one of the few parts I watched. Justice Renquist said something to the effect of, "The Senate recognizes Mr. Hyde." How Mr. Hyde resisted the urge to crack a joke about Dr. Jekyll I'll never know.
