Calif. Rep. Tom Lantos dies

 

 

"It is only in the United States that a penniless survivor of the Holocaust and a fighter in the anti-Nazi underground could have received an education, raised a family and had the privilege of serving the last three decades of his life as a member of Congress," Lantos said upon announcing his retirement last month. "I will never be able to express fully my profoundly felt gratitude to this great country."

Correct:

 

 

Lantos, a Democrat who chaired the House Foreign Affairs Committee

In the article "Rep." is short for Representative.

Dem or Repub, who cares? A person who gave their life to the service of others has died. Unless he was Rush, I am sure he did what he thought best.

It was in regard to a title change, people aren't being petty.

 

I'll agree though, the world is a little poorer each time someone passes on who lived through what he did.

I've read about him before. Kudos for his achievements and for dedicating himself so consistently to the cause of human rights, which must have been an arduous and often disheartening task.
