Bob Edgar (1943-2013)

Bob Edgar died yesterday, April 23. He represented the 7th District of Pennsylvania in Congress from 1975 to 1987. He was a Democrat.

One should not speak ill of the dead so I'll simply note that my most vivid recollection of him is the series of articles he wrote for The Philadelphia Inquirer in which he defended Pol Pot and denied the existence of the Cambodian killing fields.

    Way back in 1991 when the Simpsons were still good there was an episode called Mr. Lisa Goes To Washington that featured "Bob Arnold, a Congressman from Springfield".

    Believe it or not, he turned out to be totally dirty.
