I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Oberstar's untimely death. I worked in the aviation industry for ten years and he was very well-respected and well-liked in the industry. When I later worked for him in the House, he was consistently kind and respectful of his colleagues and staff. His self-deprecating humor and personal touch made him approachable and a wonderful leader. I sometimes discuss my belief that, despite what many seem to think, most of our representatives have the best intentions, work hard for the common good, and are not in their mostly thankless line of work for personal enrichment. Mr. Oberstar is one reason I believe that. He was the epitome of a public servant and I had hoped his 2010 loss would mean a well-deserved enjoyable retirement. We've lost one of the good guys. Warm condolences to the Oberstar family.
