With the events that have been unfolding over the past weeks, I want to take the time to note the passing of Daniel Inouye (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Inouye) on Dec 17th.

WWII combat veteran, awarded the Medal of Honor.

A representative of Hawaii since it became a state in 1959, as a Congressman and Senator for almost fifty years.

The 32nd person to lie in state at the Capitol Rotunda in US history.
