RIP Ike Skelton

He was about as Republican as a Democrat gets. Pro Gun, Pro Life, voted against The Affordable Care Act. But despite his Republican leanings, people in his district, both Democrat and Republican, LOVED him. He got the B-2 bomber stationed at Whiteman AFB, and quadrupled the size of Ft. Leonard Wood. That brought tons of dollars into his district. I met him a couple times in Lexington. I got married there, and my wife used to teach there, so we have lots of friends and go there often. They named the new bridge for Missouri Hwy 13 over the Missouri River in his honor.

Obit in today's NY Times for Ike:

Met Ike many times. Even went to JC for an event for "his" submarine that I was a member of, the USS Jefferson City. He was always very cordial to us all when he visited the sub in San Diego and was amazing when we went there for the annual banquet and dinner. RIP Congressman

It's really too bad there's no longer any room in today's Democratic Party for centrists.
