that is a sports figure whose death actually saddens me. he was a genuine hometown hero; he spent his career with the padres, and then back to SD state, his alma mater. and he was a genuinely nice guy.

he left way too soon, and with way too nasty an end.

howard baker, who, among other things, founded the Bipartisan Policy Center. his best-known quote was "what did the president know, and when did he know it" during the watergate hearings, but the news item i heard had a much more prescient quote (which i now can't find) - something to the extent that he always insisted that people stay friends with the people they negotiate with, otherwise you end up at a point where nothing gets done. unfortunately, that's a quote that i'm afraid won't get played up much, in these hyper-partisan days.
<edit> found the quote
Quote:
“We are doing the business of the American people,” Baker said of his governing philosophy in a speech to members of Congress in 1998. “And if we cannot be civil to one another, and if we stop dealing with those with whom we disagree, or that we don’t like, we would soon stop functioning altogether.”


and of course, he has proven to be 100% correct.

I blame his recent appearance in Spongebob Squarepants' horrible tenth anniversary special. Even though that was like five years ago. I'm sure it was still the final straw.
