Next up: The Robert C. Byrd Ninth Circle!

Oh, the legacy this great man leaves! It'll take decades to replace all those signs!
In his over forty-eight years (!) in the United States Senate, Senator Byrd has achieved a pork record that is second to none. From the Robert C. Byrd Expressway to the Robert C. Byrd Freeway; the Robert C. Byrd Institute to the Robert C. Byrd Federal Building (both of them), Senator Byrd has truly left his mark on West Virginia --- and the federal budget. (And let us not overlook the proposed Robert C. Byrd rooms in the U.S. Capitol.) It would be appropriate to erect some kind of monument to his century-spanning resume --- except that he already did so himself.

That's a statue of a Senator? I thought it was the Colonel sans the glasses and the skinny goatee.

I felt very alive today. I had a bounce in my step and a song in my heart. Overall, I'd say it was a great day. Not perfect, but it was right up there.
