Default Max Cleland

Max Cleland, former senator from Georgia, died at 79.
Despite losing both legs and an arm in Vietnam, he lost his bid for re-election in 2002 as
republicans impugned his patriotism because they claimed he was soft on terrorism.
The personal attack was believed to have been the work of Karl Rove.

HAMPTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - A man who traveled to space with William Shatner last month was killed along with another person when the small plane they were in crashed in a wooded area of northern New Jersey, according to state police.

The one-time space tourist Glen M. de Vries, 49, of New York City, and Thomas P. Fischer, 54, of Hopatcong, were aboard the single-engine Cessna 172 that went down Thursday.

I think you will find that he was born in Northern Rhodesia.

Zambia didn't exist 88 years ago.

In fairness to pinhodecarlos, he faithfully copied the headline of the BBC story. The correct information,
Quote:
Born in January 1933 in Northern Rhodesia, now Zambia, he devoured tales from Rider Haggard and John Buchan as a child.
is about ten paragraphs down in the story.

No he shouldn't. It wasn't the father's fault. It was whoever trampled him.
