no aisles to cross, no space too great, no cause
more dear to john glenn than his country and
mine. as a wise observer said today, he was,
despite four terms in the senate, not a politician,
but, rather, above and beyond that loose category,
a patriot who elevated that term beyond that
overused bit of rhetoric.

john glenn lived 95 years. in this era of ill fitting
praise, i feel pride to have lived in a small part of
the glenn era. if we cannot emulate his achievements,
we can at least aspire to his vision.

ave atque vale.
