Former Senator Jesse Helms has died of natural cause at age eighty-six, MSNBC:

RALEIGH, North Carolina – Former Republican Sen. Jesse Helms, a leading conservative from North Carolina who served 30 years in the Senate before retiring in 2003, has died, the Jesse Helms Center said Friday. He was 86.

Senator Helms was a strong conservative voice in Washington for thirty years,  a friend of the taxpayers and a thorn in the side of the politically correct.  Rest in peace.
