An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. John Murtha, the first veteran of the Vietnam war and one of the most powerful lawmakers in Congress, died Wednesday morning at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, VA, after complications from gallbladder surgery. Murtha was 77.
Wednesday morning? You mean he’s been dead for 5 days, and someone is just now getting around to telling the public? Today is Monday, right? I’m very confused.
UPDATE: Evidently, that was a major typo, and they’ve now changed it to Monday afternoon.
I’ve been trying to think of something nice to say about the guy, but to be perfectly honest, nothing comes to mind.
