RIP: Congressman Elijah Cummings. 68.
He graduated from U of MD law school 2 years ahead of me. Was a wonderful man, a tireless champion for people who were underrepresented and downtrodden. Tried mightily to help his constituents and to fight for justice.
There are politicians who seem to use their office to enrich themselves in one way or the other. Here was a man who sought to enrich the lives of others.
A lot of tears are shedding in Baltimore today.
