Ten random things: October 25

Ten U.S. Senators from Minnesota:

  1. Hubert Humphrey (served January 3, 1949 – December 30, 1964; January 3, 1971 – January 13, 1978)
  2. William Windom (July 15, 1870 – January 22, 1871; March 4, 1871 – March 7, 1881; November 15, 1881 – March 3, 1883)
  3. Joseph H. Ball (October 14, 1940 – November 17, 1942; January 3, 1943 – January 3, 1949)
  4. Henry Mower Rice (May 11, 1858 – March 3, 1863)
  5. Alonzo J. Edgerton (March 12, 1881 – October 30, 1881)
  6. Arthur E. Nelson (November 18, 1942 – January 3, 1943
  7. Alexander Ramsey (March 4, 1863 – March 3, 1875)
  8. Paul Wellstone (January 3, 1991 – October 25, 2002)
  9. Walter Mondale (December 30, 1964 – December 30, 1976)
  10. Dwight M. Sabin (March 4, 1883 – March 3, 1889)

Today is the eighth anniversary of Senator Paul Wellstone, on whose staff I was proud to serve for almost three years. He was one of the best men I ever had the honor to meet. Here are a couple of remembrances that will tell you a little something about him:

And here's a link to Wellstone Action!, "a national center for training and leadership development in the progressive movement" that works to "ignite leadership in people and power in communities to win change in the progressive tradition of Paul and Sheila Wellstone." They do good work!
