Tom Lantos (1928-2008)

Congressman Tom Lantos passed away today at the age of 80. Although most of his political positions were nothing to brag about, Lantos was always a class act and a patriot who truly loved his country. Having survived the Holocaust during his youth, Lantos clearly understood the nature of evil in our world and possessed the courage and strength necessary to confront it. Lantos loved America and the freedoms it guarantees, and fought for both until the day he died.
Tom Lantos always did what he thought was right, and did so with dignity and respect for political friends and opponents alike. May he rest in peace.
