    Bummer, one of my all-time favorite Buffalo Bills, and my family's congressman for 18 years.

    Loved him as a QB. As a politician, not so much the farther right he went.

    I wasn't a fan of his politics, but I hate to see him facing cancer.

    Hope he beats it.
  3. Met him three times. Really, really liked him.
    And, probably, personality and politics together, the closest thing they had to Reagan since Reagan.
    Also, a conservative genuinely interested in the poor.
    This sucks.

    In 1988, when I was a young and idealistic college kid tacking up flyers and stuffing envelopes for his campaign, John French Kemp was my hero. He should have been President. And if he, not Dole, had headlined the ticket in 1996, I would have quit my job to work for him again.

    God bless you and see you through this, sir.
