We conservatives endure horrible commentary from lefties on social media when one of our own champions passes away, but we don’t like to treat our opposition or their families like monsters. I was struck by this quote, which says a lot about Reid and his essential qualities —Melissa
“I didn’t make it in life because of my athletic prowess. I didn’t make it because of my good looks. I didn’t make it because I am a genius. I made it because I worked hard. I tell everyone, whatever you want to try to do, make sure you work as hard as you can to try to do what you want to do. I believe that is a lesson for everyone.” —Harry Reid
