Julia Carson, 1938-2007

Representative Julia Carson died today, losing her battle to lung cancer. She had served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1996 until her death.


  1. She totally disrespected the people in her district by holding on to her position even though she was unable to serve. Harsh but true.

  2. Luftmesch: You understand how our government works, right? People don't merely hold on to their positions - they have to be elected (or re-elected, as the case may be) to office. If the people in Carson's district believed she was a disservice, they should have voted her out.

  3. lol - yes I understand. It has been this past year when she has been unable to serve and should have stepped down. It's been taken care of.

    I do enjoy your blog - well done!
