Apparently Robert Byrd has been hospitalized:

U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd was admitted to a hospital Monday evening because of a high temperature, his spokesman said.

“He came into the office today, and he was a little sluggish,” said Jesse Jacobs. After a vote at 5:30 p.m., Byrd went home, where his caregiver took his temperature, Jacobs said.

Well, to be honest I can’t recall having seen him animated in the last 20 years or so, even a little. At the risk of being insensitive, I’d as a simple statement of fact, say that we have two Democrat Senators in their final term in the Senate. Byrd and Kennedy.
