Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Sad news today about former Senator and Ambassador to India Daniel Patrick Moynihan passing away at the age of 76, from, as the Washington Post reports, complications from an operation earlier this month. "He was a skilled politician and an accomplished scholar, an independent thinker, a gifted writer and a speaker of serious wit." I have read some of the cables he wrote while Ambassador, and even in thise he had the ability to be quite witty. He had a great career and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.
