Revolutionary Paideia would like to send the deepest sympathies to the family, friends, and colleagues of Senator Ted Stevens. He was a man who worked tirelessly for the American people, especially the people of Alaska. I know that the people of Alaska will greatly miss his love of your state. Although I disagreed with some of the bills Senator Stevens wrote—like the one that provided over $250 million for a bridge to nowhere, I know that this man was just trying to do the best he could for the denizens of Alaska.
I would always enjoy watching him on C-SPAN on the floor of the United States Senate because he would be so passionate about what he was speaking for or against. Senator Stevens is the longest serving Republican U.S. senator in American history. America is better because of the service of this good public servant.

Nice tribute to a good man. I remember Senator Stevens back in the late 60s when I was working in Alaska and the Aleutian Islands with the Navy. He was their senator for over 40 years. Stevens was also a war hero C-47 pilot supporting the “Flying Tigers” in China. His work to get men concerned about prostrate cancer was selfless. May he rest in peace.
Goose, he was certainly a good man who loved America and did all that he could for Alaska. Thank you for your service to our great nation!
