The Touche-est thing I saw today.

'Round these parts it is common to see a car sporting a bumper sticker like this: That is a campaign bumper sticker for US Senator Paul Wellstone, a wonderful man. A man with the moxie and courage to change the world and to speak for those who were not being heard.

A man who died 6 years ago in a terrible plane crash days before the end of a heated election.

His passing left a huge void in the hearts of many Minnesotans. Some people still have his campaign yard sign in their yards, numerous buildings have been named (or re-named) in his honor and some put his legacy into action.

Recently I saw this take on/response to the "Wellstone!" bumper sticker:

I suppose they can mourn their heroes too.

Very true.

I still have my WELLSTONE! button and my STAND UP! KEEP FIGHTING! Wellstone button. Think I'll wear them Tuesday night in honor of Mr. Wellstone. I miss him more and more with each passing year.

I know what you mean, mnmom! Believe it or not, mty Wellstone button BROKE as I rode the bus home from work the day he died. I just about lost it right there on the bus.

I would have cried too. I was truly depressed for weeks. What a loss. And, truthfully, I don't think it was an accident. I HATE that this administration has made me a conspiracy nut wearing a tin-foil hat.
