Harry Reid, RIP

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., center, and Senate Democrats gather outside the Capitol to urge Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, and other House Republicans, to break the impasse on a funding bill and stop the government shutdown that is now in its second week, Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, in Washington. With so many furloughed federal workers living in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs outside Washington, senators from those states made special pleas. At right is Sen.

Wow—more on this to come.

I will say that I saw Reid speak a few years ago at the Western History Association conference in Las Vegas. It was amazing to hear him tell his mobster stories. But I was also told then that he was in very bad health and I don’t think anyone who knew him expected him to last this long.

We will undoubtedly have more about Reid in the coming day or two.
