Senator Robert Byrd: He Will Achieve Near Immortal Status

Ninety-two year old Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia passed away yesterday. He was famous for pork barrel politics, his knowledge of parliamentary procedures and for being the longest serving U.S. Senator. Now he will develop into a lump of coal That's the stuff his state is famous- mountain top removal mining et al. As a lump of coal he will achieve near-immortal status. But no one will recognize him. Will he rest in peace or will some other Senator's policies unearth him and shovel him into a furnace?
