A Bird in Hand is Worth a Fraction of a Byrd in Congress

Robert Byrd becomes the poster "boy" for the need for term limits on Congress by being the longest serving Senator in history. With over 17,000 days in office, he just edges past Strom Thurmond's record (though Strom still holds the oldest-serving title). The article gives him responsibility for billions of federal (e.g. taxpayer) dollars going to West Virginia. I'm sure glad all that money over his tenure of 48 years has fixed all the problems in the state...
