Capitol Fax: Former US Sen. Charles Percy dies

Charles Percy was ahead of my time. All this news gives me is a look back into the past.

BTW, Illinois Review has a recent post about him in light of his death. Republicans could learn a lesson from him. Perhaps no more talk of "RINOs".

Percy held the seat that's currently held by Dick Durbin. Percy was defeated by Paul Simon in 1984 and Simon served in the US Senate from 1985 to 1997.

Some of those tidbits are probably unnecessary, but like I said it's an excuse to look back into the past.
