RIP - Gerry Studds

Studds, 1st openly gay congressman, dies - Yahoo! News

Former Congressman Gerry Studds died this morning at the age of 69. For any readers who don't recognize his name, he' s the man who was caught having a sexual relationship with a 17-year old congressional page in 1983. When Congress censured him for his conduct, he turned his back on them as they read the resolution.

This may sound really weird, but when I heard about his death - the first thought that came to my mind was, "I hope they bury him face down so can keep right on turning his back on the world."

Psychoanalyze that thought as much as you'd like.
