    She's alive right now, fortunately. Last sitting member of Congress to be killed was Leo Ryan by the Peoples Temple (Jim Jones freaks) in Guyana in 1978. The last assassination of a sitting member inside the U.S. was Robert Kennedy in 1968.

    A federal judge was killed as well.

    This is all very sad and disturbing.

    He sounds like he has a few screws loose.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Very sad. Unfortunately I suspect that these types of assassinations will become more and more common as people seek to strike out at a government whom they believe do not fairly represent their interests.
