Stevens Indicted

Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska has just been indicted for improperly reporting some largesse that came his way. An old man at the end of his career. Taken down before the Democrats get him.

Inventor of the Bridge to Nowhere, the senator was perhaps descended from the Stevens who named mountain peaks and passes down in Washington State, or the John Stevens whose designs for steamboats were refined and implemented by Robert Fulton, who then became the official inventor. An ignoble end for an inventor.

This takedown of a Senator by a partisan administration run by his own party cannot bode well for anyone else whose skills at fundraising could become a future embarrassment.
