    Years ago I used to make a point of visiting a little shop that specialized in repairing small electrical appliances. It was located on Main Street in a small Southern town, and was run - well, tended - by two elderly sisters who could have stepped out of a short story by Eudora Welty or Flannery O'Connor. It was that kind of town: a Southern Gothic place full of types and anecdotes you seldom find any more, even in these storied latitudes. The repair shop was crammed from floor to ceiling with assorted radios, clocks, electric irons and other gadgets...

    Former Rep. Henry Hyde, who died Wednesday at 83, was indeed an extraordinary man, a political giant who earned the respect of his colleagues across the political spectrum. Mr. Hyde, a Republican congressman from suburban Chicago, was many things during his 32 years in Congress: a political statesman and leader; chairman of the Judiciary and International Relations Committees; a skilled parliamentarian and debater; and a tireless fighter for conservative causes ó including protection for the innocent unborn and political freedom for the people of Central America. In 1976 the freshman lawmaker won passage of the "Hyde Amendment" to appropriations bills,...

    DUmmieland is a hate site. Exhibit #847: Reaction to the death yesterday of former Republican congressman Henry Hyde, in this THREAD titled, "Henry Hyde died at around 3 A.M. this morning." Whenever a prominent conservative dies--Ronald Reagan, Jerry Falwell--you can be sure the DUmmies will celebrate with glee. Rather than letting the recently departed rest in peace--speak no ill of the dead--the DUmmies let loose with a barrage of ill. And Henry Hyde is a juicy target for them. His two great sins: 1) He was a champion of the pro-life cause; and 2) He was a leader in...

    Washington, DC ( -- Former member of Congress Henry Hyde will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom next Monday for his work opposing abortion. For decades, after his landmark Hyde Amendment stopped federal funding of virtually all abortions, Hyde became the pro-life movement's elder statesman on Capitol Hill. Hyde was first elected to the House in 1974 and served as chairman of the House International Relations Committee and the House Judiciary Committee from 1995 to 2001. In those positions, Hyde advanced pro-life legislation and worked to stop using taxpayer dollars to subsidize abortions in other countries. Hyde's lasting legacy will...

    It was eight years ago today that William Jefferson Clinton became only the second U.S. president to be impeached by the House of Representatives. Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstructing justice. Two months later, the Senate voted not to convict him, even though the evidence (such as Clinton's own words, deeds and presidue) proved him guilty. Rep. Henry Hyde, who as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee led the thirteen House Managers in prosecuting Clinton before the Senate, is retiring from Congress this year. Below is his closing argument in the impeachment trial of President Clinton: CHIEF JUSTICE. The...

    Few people who enter public life can ever hope to leave it casting as big of a shadow as Henry J. Hyde. The sixteen-term Congressman from Illinois sixth district is retiring this year, and he leaves behind a legacy as a passionate defender of conservative principles and also as one of the most fair-minded and equanimous members of Congress. Republican Peter Roskam is running to replace Mr. Hyde, and having worked for him back in the 1970's and then watched him in action over the years, he fully understands the size of the shoes he is seeking to fill.

If you live in Chicagoís western suburbs in the Sixth Congressional District youíll get a chance to choose the winner of this face off. Your choice could decide whether Democrats gain control of the House. This is a district where President Bush won 53 percent of the vote in 2004. Now itís up to veteran state legislator Peter Roskam to keep it a Republican seat in House. Since 1974, Republican Henry Hyde, best...
